Colombia is fast emerging as one of the most popular travel destinations in South America. After a dark and well documented history of drug cartels, the country has transformed itself into one of the most delightful, friendly and fascinating countries in which to travel. Colombia boasts a rich and intriguing Spanish colonial history including the UNESCO designated city of Cartagena, which is a real gem and is the only South American country with coastlines on both the Atlantic and the Pacific side.
The country also has three majestic mountain ranges, wonderful beaches, snowy peaks and Andean landscapes including the fertile coffee triangle renowned for its incredible coffee and hiking and then the Amazon regions is home to an extraordinary wealth of fauna and flora.
With its fascinating pre-Columbian civilisations, rich cultural history and spectacular scenery, the country has emerged as one of the continent’s most enchanting gems.
