Unspoilt Colombia has arguably the most dramatic scenery, the greatest variety of flora and fauna, the most atmospheric towns, and among the friendliest people in Latin America. Jagged snow-spangled Andean peaks rake the skies above an apron of coffee plantations giving way to unsullied rainforests. Warm Caribbean waters stroke lazy blond beaches, while pre-Conquest ruins and exquisite colonial cities dot the landscape.

Colombia has a comprehensive air network – essential in such fractured landscape – and locally a good road system. The tourist infrastructure in these more stable times is expanding rapidly. With a bit of careful planning and judicious use of expert advice, the visitor can enjoy a most rewarding experience.

What our experts say

I first visited Colombia in the mid 80s, a time of turmoil offering an edgy adventure... Later, when things settled down, I got to know the coffee country, and my husband proposed on the top of Providencia island's lonely volcano.  Nowadays, the beautiful city of Cartagena has a Hay Festival, the breathtaking Caribbean beaches are becoming more accessible and you can once again trek the marvellous trail to the Ciudad Perdida, or Lost City.
