CELEBRATE THE FESTIVAL OF SLEEP WITH CONTIKI


The Festival of Sleep Day (January 3) was created to encourage everyone to get some “shut eye” after the festive season, and to celebrate fantastic places around the world to sleep in. As a festival that revolves around rest and relaxation, Contiki, the worldwide leader in tours for 18-35s has come up with a list of its top three special stay accommodation in South America where travellers can experience fantastic overnights, and are guaranteed to sleep in comfort.

Imagine taking in the sunset at a remote lodge right in the heart of Peru’s Colca Canyon, or falling asleep in a comfortable jungle cabin in Costa Rica and waking up to the vibrant sound of a toucan as a natural alarm clock. From incredible wildlife to endless adventure to colourful cities and guaranteed good times, Latin America is unlike anywhere else in the world. To help young travellers make every moment count and to feed the growing demand for travel to South America, Contiki has added 21 itineraries to its Latin America and introduced Belize, Guatemala, and one of the world’s hottest travel spots – Colombia — as exciting new destinations for 2015.

Heavily promoted as one of the world’s fastest-growing travel destinations, Colombia offers up a heady mix of culture, adventure and epic landscapes. Contiki’s exclusive 11-day Hola Colombia trip brings travellers right into the heart of the country, as they explore Bogota, Armenia, Medellin, Santa Marta and Cartagena and immerse themselves in the local culture. 

This vibrant journey offers up a taste of everything, as travellers explore the culinary side of Colombia with a cooking class, get their heart pumping on an exciting zipline adventure and enjoy the simple life with a traditional horse and carriage ride along the cobblestoned streets of historic Cartagena. It’s all woven into the unique Contiki experience – inviting travellers to be a part of the heart and soul of these colourful destinations.

“Our Contiki trips include accommodation that will make each holiday memorable. From a Guatemalan jungle lodge to a colonial hotel in Cartagena or a Costa Rican eco-camp, our Latin American accommodation is the jewel in our crown that really makes us stand out from the rest. Travelling Contiki-style means our young travellers can get back to nature in comfort while they are guaranteed to sleep in comfort. We are all about style, unique experiences and those little additions that set us apart from the rest – WiFi, twin shares and swimming pools with the WOW factor,” said Kevin Khor, Contiki Sales & Marketing Head (Asia). ”
