Land of beautiful people, mountains, beaches, vibrant cities, music, coffee, chocolate, delicious food and good times. Colombia beckons travelers to experience a Latin American culture heavily influenced by European and African roots. Heritage and history unfold in Bogota, Medillin and coastal Cartegena, while the countryside and coffee regions offer natural beauty and outdoor adventure.
What’s To Love in Colombia
A tour of Bogota invigorates the senses with soaring peaks of Mount Montserrate overlooking the city; the funky La Candeleria district with its eclectic street art, historic public squares and vibrant open-air markets; art and history museums; and cathedrals. A number of small, boutique hotels, quaint eateries, and entertaining bars thrive throughout the city making Bogota a destination enjoyed by day and night.
Hop over to the district of Quindío, densely populated by family centric Colombian coffee and cocoa plantations. Enjoy staying in a local hacienda or working farm where guests can hike, ride horses with a gaucho, paraglide, learn to cook local dishes and embrace the coffee culture.
Join the party in Cartagena. Boutique hotels tucked behind old wooden doors hide spectacular gardens and private pools within the ancient walls of the Old City. Nightlife, restaurants, horse drawn carriages, street vendors, performers and musicians are all part of the Cartagena scene. A trip to the local market and biking though the neighborhood of Getsemani are also great ways to enjoy local culture and capture some great photographs and memories.
No trip to Cartagena is complete without a trip to the Rosario Islands aboard a chartered private boat. Choose between a day tour or an overnight stay to explore and relax on pristine beaches away from the crowds.
Join Aturo Escobar on a private transformation tour which highlights the extreme positive changes that have taken place in Medillin since the violent ‘90s and the drug culture cultivated by Aturo’s brother Pablo.
Tayrona National Park
Experience Tayrona National Park and Santa Marta in northern Colombia. This park, located where the foothills of the Sierra Nevada meet the Caribbean coast, is known for its palm-shaded coves, coastal lagoons and the Pueblito ruins, an archaeological site built by the Tayrona civilization.
Escape in Luxury
Stay in a private villa such as a bungalow in the tropical jungle, a hacienda in the Andes or a contemporary home in the countryside—complete with a local chef, butler, concierge and full-time chauffer.
Colombia is close to the equator, so its temperatures remain fairly static throughout the year. The coast is generally dry and warm, the lowlands generally humid and tropical, and the highlands somewhat more moderate in the day with cool evenings. The dry season runs December through March and again July and August.
