Are you up for an adventure? This one is for serious takers only. If you are looking for an out-of-the-ordinary vacation opportunity, then let me introduce you to Ciudad Perdida. The site of an ancient city built by the Tayrona natives of Colombia among the cloud forests of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, it lay undiscovered until 1972.

Fortunately, security is no longer the issue it once was used to be in this South American country, and this the area has been deemed safe for turistas. So put your fear aside and hurry to discover this magical place for yourself. For more info visit
