Colombia - Here at the equator, with the sun forever overhead, the fecund earth beneath your feet, heart-stopping vistas in every direction and the warmth of the locals putting you at ease – you may find it difficult to leave! Colombian culture, like the country’s weather, varies by altitude.
The essence of Colombia resides in the mountains in the alpine cities of Bogota, Medellin, and Cali, and the smaller cities of the Zona Cafetera. In the heat of the Caribbean coast, life is slower, and the culture more laid-back however, and the infrastructure, unfortunately, is still in need of some attention.
Colombia is South America's best-kept secret. Begin in Colombia's capital city of Bogotá, next, retreat from the urban bustle and settle into the rich countryside culture of Colombia's famed Coffee Triangle. Immerse into the lush tropical rainforest and sandy beaches with clear blue waters at Tayrona. Conclude your Colombian journey with a timeworn splendour of the colonial Cartagena.
Venezuela and Colombia are the two northernmost countries of South America, and also the least visited. For the time-limited traveler, we’ve distilled the most essential sights: the other-worldly landscape of Canaima National Park, the cobblestone streets of Cartagena, and the pristine Caribbean coastline.
