Colombia has long been in the world’s spotlight for its crime and social unrest, but the reality on the ground could not be more different for travelers. You will find that colombians are extremely kind and helpful, eager to show you what their magnificent country has to offer. Colombia is one of few countries that can claim such a vast multitude of climates, landscapes, people and atmospheres. You will find something that suits you, no matter how picky you are. Here are a few things you can do in Colombia: Relax on white sandy beaches like Playa Blanca and Palomino, enjoy the nightlife and dance Salsa on the old Colonial squares of Cartagena, take on the challenging hike to the lost city in the Tayrona national Park, chill with the urban crowd in one of the world’s most elevated capitals, Bogota, visit the eco coffee plantations on the coffee trail (Eje Cafetero) or head to the Guajira desert and claim you’ve been to the most northern tip of the South American continent.
