Things to do in Colombia

A year-round destination that spans both Pacific and Caribbean coasts, Colombia is perhaps South America's best-kept secret. And, while it may not be as familiar as some of its neighbours, it offers a wealth of experiences in its pretty colonial towns and diverse natural habitats.

While you are in the capital, Bogota, visit the Salt Cathedral at the heart of Zipaquirá. Further west, Cartagena is one of the best-preserved examples of colonial architecture in South America, and you can explore the brightly coloured buildings and cobbled streets on a city tour. Elsewhere, take a coffee tour of the Cordillera in Colombia's coffee region, or look for macaw in Tayrona National Park, set in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada.
