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.

Our insider tips for Colombia


Hannah Donaldson

Join the locals in the late afternoon for a stroll round Cartagena’s monumental fortress city walls. Nothing evokes the city's history of gold, precious stones, pirates battles at sea quite as much as the seeing the aquamarine sea to one side and the terracotta tiled roofs of bougainvillea-clad mansions and brightly painted church domes in the warm orange sunlight to the other side.


Lina Fuller

Head off the beaten track to San Agustin, known for the mysterious carved statues discovered scattered amongst the verdant forested hilltops nearby. Created between the 1st and 8th centuries, long before the discovery of the Americas, very little is even known today about the ancient Andean civilisation that once inhabited this remote and extraordinarily beautiful sub-tropical area of Colombia.


Isabelle Mazille

Colombians are fun and incredibly welcoming, a genuine highlight of a visit to the country. Many speak a smattering of English so how better to meet them than pulling up a stool at a tropical juice street stall and asking for a recommendation? There is no better place than Colombia to discover fruits you have never heard of, let alone tasted!

Do not miss a visit to Bogotá’s world famous Gold Museum, arguably one of the best in Latin America. The extraordinary craftsmanship of the country's pre-Columbian civilisations can me appreciated through the 35,000 pieces on display and leaves little doubt as to why the Spanish conquistadors believed the fabled city of El Dorado to be in Colombia.

What our experts say

Following an exhaustive exploratory trip to Colombia in 2017, I am really excited that we have devised a holiday taking you to new, up and coming destinations in Colombia. These have been off the map for visitors for decades but are now, with increased security and a better infrastructure including paved roads and more hotels, showing themselves off to their full glory. Popayán, undeservedly little visited but all the more alluring for that, and the Amazon, where I was surprised by friendly indian communities as well as pink dolphins, are definite highlights.
