Reasons to Visit
From the rugged, tropical paradise of Tayrona National Park, backed by equitorial rainforest, to the beautiful white-sand beaches of San Andres and Providencia, Colombia offers a wide range of beautiful beach options, although the accommodation options can be somewhat limited!
Synonymous with Colombia, coffee has been exported from Colombia for around 200 years. The Zona Cafetera is becoming something of an attraction, with visitors tasting coffee at traditional fincas. As well as the coffee, the region is geographically stunning with spectacular panoramas of rolling hillsides, lush fertile vallets and quaint colonial villages.
Whilst most renowned in the fortified city of Cartagena, there are fine examples of colonial architecture spanning Colombia from the historical La Candelaria in Bogota and Villa de Leyva to the pretty villages in the coffee region.
Despite having developed a reputation that may deter visitors from travelling, Colombia has entered a period of relative stability. It is now without doubt one our favourite destinations for a diverse and enthralling experience, albeit one for those with an adventurous spirit and a desire to see somewhere off the beaten track.

The jewel of the coast is Cartagena with many tourists flocking to see the old romantic city.
Taganga is also a beautiful spot, it is a small fishing village set within a deep bay south of Santa Marta.
A visit to the Caribbean coast is not complete without exploring the Parque Nacional Tayrona. The landscape varies from sandy beach in the north to dense rainforest in the south which was once a settlement for the Tayrona Indians.
It is Tayrona’s beaches though that are a firm favourite with travellers. They are said to be the best in Colombia as they are set in deep bays and shaded by palms.
