Colombia is a South American country known for its combination of stunning landscapes, fantastic cities, and incredible people. No matter where you’re travelling in Colombia, you’ll experience a feast for the senses when you pick Colombia.
One of Colombia’s greatest treasures is having tons of natural wonders, and it caters to all types of travellers. Do you want to be far away from civilization? Go to Amazonia’s Amacayacu National Park where you can wander the park by boat and see wildlife like monkeys and see the rare pink dolphins. Isla Gorgona is also abundant with wildlife such as whales and sea turtles. Go diving here too and see more marine animals.
Are you a mountaineer? Visit Tayrona National Park, trek the volcano at Los Nevados National Park, and see the most amazing landscape of flowers in Cocuy National Park. But if you’re more of a mermaid or merman, San Andres and Providencia Islands have incredible beaches waiting for you.
For more incredible adventures, head to San Gil, Barichara, and Chicamocha Canyon. These areas are home to Colombia’s gorgeous mountains for road trips, rivers to raft, caves to explore, and waterfalls to abseil. Reward yourself next and fly to Pereira for a dip in Santa Rosa’s hot springs.
Colombia is also chockfull of great cities you should visit. Fly to Bogota to find world-class dining, vibrant nightlife, and excellent museums like the golden Museo del Oro. If you love to dance, Colombia’s Cali is the salsa capital of the world.
Take photographs of the city’s other manmade destinations. There’s the massive Catedral de Sal, which is a dazzling church built underground in a former salt mine. Channel your inner Indiana Jones and explore the Archaeological sites in San Agustin and Tierradentro, or the beautifully preserved town of Villa de Leyva.
