Colombia

Colombia serves as a microcosm of South America, encompassing archaeological ruins, towering peaks, Caribbean beaches and perfectly preserved colonial towns.

Explore Colombia, a South American country on the northern tip of the continent with a stunning Caribbean coast and rugged interior scenery. See the ruins of little-explored lost cities, stretch out on golden beaches and hike through dense verdant rainforests and bone-dry deserts.

On the coast of Colombia is the romantic city of Cartagena where colonial stone walls surround narrow passageways and beautiful churches. The UNESCO-listed Old Town is tailor-made for aimless strolling. Further out of town, indulge in gourmet food on Bocagrande where you can stay in a luxury hotel with sea views.

Colombia’s northernmost point is La Guajira Peninsula, where the indigenous Wayuu people have fended off pirates, smugglers and pearl hunters for thousands of years. Trek across the seemingly unending deserts, enjoy stunning views out to sea from Caribbean beaches.

Adventure seekers will enjoy finding the lost city of Ciudad Perdida, an abandoned city in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta Mountains. Take a guided hike to this area to inspect the ruins of the houses, terraces and pottery that have been uncovered here. For a bit of a background before you go, visit the related museum in Santa Marta.

December through February promises sunny skies and generally warm days. For cheaper accommodations prices, visit in October or November and marvel at the heavy rainfall in the rainforests.

Fly into the international airports in Bogota, Medellin or Cartagena. To travel around Colombia, book domestic flights with budget airlines. Most major cities have airports and you may be surprised at how many remote towns are also equipped for air travel. Buses, including the colectivos (shared buses or taxis), are another popular, if a little slower, option. Be sure to check government travel advice before you plan a trip to ensure you are visiting regions considered safe and open to tourists. 

Come to Colombia to witness the underrated natural beauty and under-the-radar cultural attractions of this captivating South American nation.
