Guatape panoramic view from the Rock (La Piedra del Penol), near Medellin, Colombia


Home to a diversity of cultures and break-taking scenery on a footprint twice the size of France, Colombia makes a wonderful destination for travellers. From salsa dancing to food, there's so much to experience in Colombia from jungles and snow-capped volcanoes to rocky deserts, lush valleys, and deserted beaches.

Wander the narrow streets in Bogotá, discover old Spanish colonial provincial retreats like Villa de Leyva, and trek through the thick jungle-covered mountains of the northeast. Walk the walls of Cartagena's achingly beautiful old city, looking over the fortified ramparts upon which the colonial history of South America pivoted. Then try the ubiquitous cheap, delicious Colombian home-style meals or head to the big cities for a taste of cuisines from all corners of the world.
