When Do You Want To Go?
Undiscovered by international tourists for decades, Colombia has only recently begun to gain the recognition it deserves as a fantastic holiday destination. Forget everything you think you know and get ready to experience stunning landscapes, lost cities, romantic Caribbean islands, vibrant festivals and, of course, the best coffee in the world!
A day spent wandering around the colourful buildings of Cartagena is enough to make anyone fall for the charms of this alluring country but, whatever you do, don't stop there as Colombia has many more delights waiting in store. Explore the exceptionally beautiful Tayrona National Park or enjoy a thrilling jungle hike to Ciudad Perdida. Try your hand at coffee roasting in the famous Coffee Regions, taste traditional Colombian cuisine in a buzzing Santa Marta restaurant, experience the vibrancy of Colombian life in bustling Medellin and explore some of the world's most astonishing-museums in Bogota. And when you're ready for some beach-side rest and relaxation, the outstandingly beautiful archipelago and natural national park of the Rosario Islands is just one of Colombia's many picture-postcard destinations to choose from.

Colombia’s vibrant capital city, Bogota, is where travellers go for a heady mix of city life and historic culture. Museums, theatres and restaurants are aplenty, especially in the cultural centre of La Candelaria. Take a guided walking or cycling tour, settle into a coffee shop to watch the world go by or head out to one of the many bars or nightclubs.
No visit to Colombia is complete without a few days in the coffee region. Explore traditional fincas, go walking in the green hills and wander around cobbled market towns. Coffee is one of Colombia’s biggest exports, so enjoy learning about it from the people closest to the process.
Nowhere epitomises Colombia’s resurgence as a tourist destination quite like Medellin. From trendy coffee shop districts to open public spaces, there’s plenty going on here. Head to the botanical gardens and enjoy the famously pleasant weather, or soak in the electric atmosphere of a live football match. Whatever your ideal day in a city destination might look like, we promise there’s something here for you.
Bright, colonial architecture and a Caribbean climate are waiting for you in the coastal town of Cartagena. The colourful, painted houses and shop fronts are among the most photogenic in all Colombia, while street performers and horse-drawn carriages are around every corner. When the heat of the day ebbs away, restaurants and bars spill out into the cobbled streets, making for long evenings of eating, drinking and whiling the night away.
The gateway into Tayrona National Park, Santa Marta is a great place for the more adventurous traveller to base themselves. Take a four-day hike into the Colombian jungle searching for the Lost City, or a shorter day trip if four days sounds a little too much! And if the jungle isn’t your thing, Santa Marta itself has plenty to offer. Head downtown for a fantastic restaurant scene (you must try the arepas!) and lively, alfresco dining complete with fairy lights and buskers.
Perhaps the easiest and most popular part of Tayrona National Park to explore is Cañaveral Beach, one of the longest and most impressive beaches in the park, and a stunning spot to spend a day. Strong currents mean it’s not possible to swim, but you can go for a little paddle in the turquoise waters and stroll along the white, palm tree-fringed sand. This is also a great spot to try someday hiking further into the park.
Sharks, barracuda, turtles, rays. these are only some of the extraordinary marine animals you can expect to see while scuba diving on San Andres. This Caribbean island, actually closer to Nicaragua than Colombia, is an ocean lover’s paradise. If scuba diving isn’t your thing, don't worry - you can go snorkelling, enjoy a boat trip, or simply take in the sights and sounds of the beautiful beaches. And if something a little more rustic is in order, you can spend a few days on the nearby island of Providencia too.
