COLOMBIA TRAVEL – Colombia is at this time one of the world’s top destinations. And rightly so: this exquisite South American nation is blessed with natural beauty – think high Andean peaks, Caribbean beaches, pristine Amazon jungle – not to mention mysterious archaeological sites, colonial treasures and thriving cities. It’s a joy to travel around.
Colombia is the only country in South America with coastlines on both the North Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea as well as the country with the world’s second most biodiversity. Colombia is surrounded by Venezuela to the east, Brazil to the southeast, and Ecuador to the south west.
Bogota, capital of Colombia, is one of South America’s trendiest destinations; a place of hip bars and street art, vibrant markets and colourful architecture. Bogota offers a fabulous mix of old and new; the cobbled streets of La Candelaria offer a stark contrast to the urban chic of Zona Rosa. Colombia Travel
Colombia’s colonial towns have been lovingly preserved, most notably the UNESCO-listed city of Cartagena. But don’t stop there. Other historic settlements also warrant a visit, amongst them the cities of Mompós, Villa de Leiva and Barichara. The mysterious “Lost City Trek” of Ciudad Perdida is also worthy of a detour, but you may leave with more questions than you arrived with. Colombia Travel
