Colombia perhaps does not always get the credit it deserves for its diverse culture and natural wonders. Bogotá, the capital, unfolds with historic charm and cultural richness. Cartagena’s colonial beauty graces the Caribbean coast. Medellín, nestled in the Andes, thrives with innovation and urban allure. Explore the lush landscapes of the Coffee Triangle.
Often overlooked for more colourful cities like Cartagena and Medellin, Bogota is worth exploring. The city is the intellectual backbone of Colombia and home to some of the most impressive museums in the Americas.
Running through the veins of Cartagena is the colour, music and colour of Afro-Caribbean culture. Blend this with the grandeur of the city’s colonial past, and you have a destination that will capture your imagination.
Sprawled beneath the foothills of the Andes, the marshy grasslands of Los Llanos is wild west country. Luxury tented camps in the style of an African safari allow you to explore the abundant wildlife that rivals the savannahs of East Africa.
Known as the ‘City of Eternal Spring’ due to its temperate weather, Medellin is embraced by green Andean valleys. Just like a spring flower, the city has emerged from the winter of its difficult past as one of the most exciting and forward-thinking cities in South America.
The Pacific Coast of Colombia is one of the wildest and untouched parts of the country. Here you will find steamy jungles that tumble onto soft sand pounded by Pacific waves.
Colombia’s portion of the Andes Mountains is rich with farmland, dense forests, gaping canyons patrolled by Andean condor and waterfalls tumbling into freshwater pools. Sleepy colonial towns nestle in the cupped valleys of rugged peaks, and family-run coffee plantations perch on hillsides.
