Why You Should Think About a Trip to Colombia


Why You Should Think About a Trip to Colombia

For many years, Colombia was thought of as a dangerous place to visit. However, as the South America nation has slowly become more peaceful, tourist numbers have increased. It’s easy to see why.

Inspiring Attractions

Colombia, known as “the gateway to South America” because of its location in the north of the continent, has beaches on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. But take a trip away from the water and you will also find the Mars red landscapes of the Tatacoa Desert, the rainforests and 12,000 year old rock paintings of Chiribiquete National Park, and the beautiful “lost city” of Teyuna, believed to have been built around the year 800.


Colourful Cities

On the Caribbean coast, Cartagena, with its famous Old Town and fortress, has been popular with visitors for many years. And further south, the capital city of Bogotá may be sometimes rainy, but it also offers lots of museums, restaurants and great nightlife.

Dancing and Festivals

Famous for salsa dancing, Cali is a city that dances all year round, but the fun really begins in September when the World Salsa Festival comes to town. And up north in the city of Barranquilla. The birthplace of pop star Shakira. Here the traditional carnival is one of the largest in the world.

After all that, relax with the real taste of Colombia. West of Bogotá is an area known as Zona Cafetera, the “coffee zone.” Talk to the farmers, watch them at work, and enjoy the taste of one of the country’s best-known products.

Wouldn’t it be great if you had someone to look after you. To ensure that you have a safe trip and to always put your welfare first. Someone who spoke your language, but who was local. When you visit a new area, wouldn’t it be great to have someone to help you feel orientated. To help you find the nearest ATM, the local shops, and where the best restaurants are, that are not tourist traps etc. Then what you need is your very own private friendly local tour guide.
