Phenomenal Once in a Lifetime Experience
Jan. 2020
This was by far one of the most meaningful and well executed travel experiences I've ever had. Angel was our hilarious and super intelligent guide. He is truly a cultural and literary scholar who has developed such an incredible relationship with the people of Palenque. He has the utmost respect for the history and culture, and his excitement about sharing all of his knowledge was palpable. He and our palenquero host filled us in on the past, present, and future of this unique village, a tiny slice of Africa in the mountains of South America. They lead us through town, covering as much culture, history, and traditions as possible. The hours flew by like minutes. It was such a privilege for people there to share their way of life with us, answer my endless slew of questions. Everyone should get to know this place. Dance there, sing there, eat there, learn there, share there. Duran Duran facilitated the best possible experience for doing so.

This is the first review about this beautiful village name Palenque De Sa Basilio or San Basilio de Palenque. I have been visiting this beautiful corner of Africa in Colombia for over 20 years and every time I go there I always find something new. It is like a magical place where people are very proud of been the first free village from the Spanish crown. Beliefs, customs, gastronomy and much more, makes this a place worth to visit. Thanks a lot for writing about this tour. Sincerely Durán Angel Eduardo
