Colombia. A true gem!

Colombia has always intrigued me. Throughout the years of unrest and more recently as it has slowly crept back onto the tourist trail, Colombia’s diversity has appealed. And so, last May, I found myself there. At last! I was finally ticking off a country that has been on my travel bucket list for far too long! In my opinion, the beauty of Colombia is that some still view it as somewhere to be wary of which means it is still very much an ‘off-the-beaten track’ destination.

If you are one of those that is wary then let me dispell that fear. Colombia is one of the most friendliest countries I have been to in Central and South America and at no point did I feel unsafe. Now that’s done, my advice is: get there fast before everyone else does!

Still not sure why you’d go to Colombia? Well, aside from the warm and friendly people, the country quite honestly has it all! Incredible natural scenery, ancient ruins, stunning beaches, colonial architecture, mountains, the Amazon, Latin beauty queens…

For me, there are three key places that stand out from my trip:

Cartagena

A beautiful and historic walled city on the caribbean coast that offers some of the best preserved colonial architecture on the continent!

Tayrona National Park

An incredible National Park! Filled with thick jungle and fringed by paradise beaches Tayrona has no roads or big hotels… My top tip is: stay in the EcoHabs for views out across the sea.

The Coffee Triangle

The clue is in the name! A beautiful area comprised of rolling green hills covered by coffee plantations. Go here to understand the coffee trade, visit charming little colonial villages, and enjoy the mild climate.
