Colombia

An insider secret for so many years, Colombia’s hidden gems are now being discovered by more and more international travellers who fall in love with its spectacular scenery, vibrant cities and lively culture.

From the major metropoles of Bogotá, Medellín and Cali, to smaller cities like Cartagena, Santa Cruz de Mompox, Villa de Leyva, Santa Fé de Antioquia and Barichara that offer a glimpse into the country’s colonial past, not to mention the majestic landscapes in between, Colombia has something for everyone.

Thanks to its unique equatorial location, Colombia is one of the most diverse destinations on earth.

It is home to two mountain ranges – the Andes and Sierra Nevada, has Caribbean and Pacific coastlines, paradise beaches, rolling plains, national parks, deserts and jungles – including the mythical Amazon Rainforest and verdant panoramas of the Coffee Triangle, punctuated by rare waxed palm forests.

Colombians are renowned for their friendly hospitality and warm welcome to travellers who are invited to discover each region’s artesenias (handicrafts), music, dance and traditional cuisine. Colombians are incredibly proud of their heritage, celebrating throughout the year with events such as the Barranquilla Carnival or World Salsa Festival in Cali.

With so much on offer, it is clear to see how Colombia has so quickly established itself as a must-visit holiday destination – and why there is no better time to discover it for yourself!
