Explore Colombia

Colombia is a traveler’s paradise for exhilarating water sports and contemporary beach resorts in the coastlines of the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean. Cultural enthusiasts will enjoy the ethnic diversity of the country with the interaction between native descendants and Spanish colonists. The rich history legacy and biodiversity can be seen through the wide-ranging geography of Colombia, including the tropical grasslands of the coastlines, Andean mountains, and the lush forests of the Amazon. The beautiful colonial architecture of the country’s capital, Bogotá, gives travelers a place to dance the night away to the traditional dances of the cumbia and the vallenato.

Colombia has thirty four national parks and a plethora of nature reserves, including the Tayrona National Natural Park in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range, the Nevado del Ruiz volcano, the Cocora valley and the Tatacoa Desert in the central Andean region, and the Amacayacu National Park in the Amazon River basin. Adventure enthusiasts can pursue a wide range of activities, from rock climbing and mountain biking in the Andes, to birding and fishing in the Amazon jungles.  On the Caribbean Coast, check out our Cabo de la Vela package where you can visit beautiful beaches and idyllic lighthouses. We offer another exciting excursion to the coast to visit Lost City of Ciudad Perdida where you will explore the flora and fauna of Ecuador and encounter settlements of the Kogi Indians in the Valley of the River Buritaca.

This 5 day trek is a wonderful hike towards Ciudad Perdida, the lost city. You will hike daily between 4 and 5 hours, sleep in hammocks and swim in creeks. You can choose whether you would prefer a hotel booked for you in Santa Marta before and after the trip, or you can opt not to make use of this option.

A beautiful seaside city, this Colombian paradise offers much for the tourist aside from the stunning Caribbean coast.

Medellin
MEDELLIN:
Once a city in which drug baron Pablo Escobar reigned supreme, this city is now far safer and anyone convincing you otherwise shouldn't be believed.

Head to the Museum of Antioquia for impressive collections of pre-Columbian colonial and modern art collections. Medellin is Colobia's second largest city and worth visiting.

Nuqui
NUQUI:
Nuqui, a paradise in the Colombian Pacific where the beach and the jungle meet, is famous for being where migrating whales meet to escape the southern winter. The best time to do this is in October.

Bahia Salano
BAHIA SALANO:
There is a hub of marine activities for the traveller in Bahia Solano. It is the perfect place to learn how to scuba dive, as it offers world class sights as well as sport fishing. Whale watching is also popular as migrating whales come from Southern Argentina to escape the winter.

LETICIA:
A small town based on the triple frontier between Peru, Colombia and Brazil, Leticia is one of the best places to go for an Amazon excursion.

Travellers can, from here, also float down the Amazon towards Manaus over a few days, lazing around in a hammock watching the world go by.
