Bogota

With a population of over 8 million people, Bogota is an important cultural, industrial and business center. Bogota offers you all the riches of a dynamic and modern city, yet also displays distinct traces of its colonial past and Spanish legacy with traditional colorful architecture and cobblestone streets. And that’s not all. This marvelous city offers up numerous sites for your amusement: historical landmarks, world-class restaurants, countless shops and boutiques selling Colombian textiles – just to name a few. A must-see place is Monserrate Hill where you can see one of the best views of the city from afar on foot or by cable car. This Colombian town offers you a vast range of attractions: historic churches, several nice parks, and ancient ruins.

Medellin

Marvellous adventures await visitors to the momentous and scenic city of Medellin. Stay at one of our luxury hotels, with plenty of on-site amenities and restaurants, so you can experience all that this marvellous destination has to offer. Keep your camera ready because you’ll want to capture the scenic views of the winding cobblestone streets and the pleasant sight of children playing in the newly constructed parks.

Cartagena

The historic city of Cartagena is steeped in Spanish culture, from its many colonial-era buildings and balconies covered with fresh flowers to the hours it takes just to drive through. A national landmark, the Castillo de San Felipe fort sits on a small island where an imposing fortress guard’s day-to-day activities are still remembered.

Cartagena has many adventurous things, like walking across its old bridge Puente de la Candelaria, built centuries ago, or visiting Santander Park. Cartagena’s port gives glimpses of a life lived by fishermen working right off the coastlines.

Valledupar

The capital of this northern state is located in the extreme north of Colombia, near the Venezuelan border. From its high-rises and skyscrapers, Valle del Cauca spreads out towards fertile valleys where gold mines were found a few centuries ago. Other smaller towns such as Honda and San Juan de Pasto are not too far away. Even Santa Rosa de Cabal holds traces of colonial buildings built with stone bricks of volcanic origin. Despite its violent history, the region is bathed by the warm waters of both rivers: Magdalena River which rises from Lake Nicaragua on the Nicaraguan border, and Cauca River that comes from Bolivar Park in Bogota until it reaches Panama River.

Santa Marta

The Colombian city of Santa Marta offers beautiful, sheltered bays with many beaches and resorts near the Caribbean shoreline. However, many visitors don’t know that there are also local neighborhoods for a unique cultural experience. These neighborhoods have been around for centuries and have managed to keep their culture alive by staying true to traditions. The party atmosphere is constant and offers a variety of day and night activities that are sure to keep visitors happy. Another reason so many people love this destination is that it has numerous festivals each year, including Carnaval de Barranquilla, one of the largest carnivals in Latin America.

Barranquilla

Travelers will have a really fun time exploring the coastlines of Barranquilla. At the world’s second largest carnival, partygoers can take part in a colorful parade and enjoy the regional foods. Boasting some of the country’s most beautiful beaches, Barranquilla has an array of hotels that are sure to please any traveler. Tourists will want to head over to the La Canoa district for authentic Colombian fare, shops, and entertainment options. It’s worth visiting Aracataca even just for its local museum that showcases its unique culture.

San Andres Island

San Andres is an island off the coast of Colombia. It was formerly a major hub for Caribbean pirates and their treasure routes during the Golden Age of Piracy. If you’re looking for peace, this is the place to go – but if you want nightlife and good times with friends, look elsewhere. The beautiful island features white sand, palm trees, lagoons, and an 18th-century fortress that can be explored. The fish is fresh as well! For snorkeling enthusiasts, the crystal clear waters offer incredible views of sea life like sea turtles and brightly colored fish.
