La Ciudad Perdida has a history that stretches back 650 years before Machu Picchu. The Tayrona people built the city they called ‘Teyuna’.

In 2003 some tourists were kidnapped there as a protest by a rebel group but all were released in the end. The Kogi are said to be the modern day descendants of the Tayrona. You can find videos, documentaries, guidebooks and many other useful resources for your journey to discover the Lost City.
