Colombia is South America’s best-kept secret. To visit Colombia is to step into the world of Colombian novelist, Gabriel García Márquez. It is a patchwork of lush green valley, turquoise Caribbean waters, colonial cities paved with gold, vibrant atmosphere worthy of 1940s Havana, colourful haciendas and modern skyscrapers.
Begin your tailored-made journey in Colombia’s capital city of Bogotá. Once synonymous with drug lords and gangs, the city has since transformed itself into one of South America’s trendiest city, with a unique foodie scene and cultural metropolis. Next, retreat from the urban bustle and settle into the northern reaches of the Andes – Colombia’s famed Coffee Triangle, where coffee is a way of life. Visit the region’s coffee farms and take in the vibrant colours of its landscape.
Immerse into the lush tropical rainforest and sandy beaches with clear blue waters at Tayrona. Conclude your Colombian journey with a taste of the tropics along its Caribbean coast in Cartagena. An UNESCO heritage site, Cartagena is a romantic and time warp beauty of colonial towns.
The dry season from December to March is the best time to visit Colombia. The other short dry season last from July to August and can be a good time to visit as well.
