Colombia is beginning to reveal its true colours – and they are gorgeous. The nation’s rich culture – contemporary art, pristine colonial architecture, renowned coffee and exciting nightlife – combines with the generous hospitality of the local people to ensure travellers feel right at home.
Straddling the equator means the Ecuadorian climate rarely fluctuates. In the north, on the Caribbean coastline, balmy days are perfect for catching rays on stunning beaches. Head south and the varying altitudes create a cooler environment, where powdered peaks and national parks flourish. All that makes for a country that’s perfect to visit at any time of year.
Immerse yourself in the bold, bright wonders of a nation that has flourished in the face of adversity. Explore the cobbled streets and colourful colonial buildings in Cartagena’s Old City. Marvel at the eye-popping murals and see street artists creating their craft throughout Bogotá. See if you can keep up with the dancers in Cali, the world capital of salsa. Sample freshly brewed coffee made from beans grown at plantations in the Coffee Zone, set in central Andes.
Colombia will lull you into a state of bliss so deep, you’ll never want to leave.
