Colombia is one of Latin America's most distinctive and until recently misrepresented countries, and is possibly the continent's most beautiful. This fascinating private journey explores a few of Colombia's highlights. Included are the rolling hills of coffee country outside the energetic capital Bogotá, and the white coral Rosario Islands off the Caribbean coast, visited from the seductive port of Cartagena, with its history of pirates and modern day arts scene.

Colombia's distinct and heady mixture of Hispanic, colonial, indigenous and African influences has left its mark on the food, music, architecture and culture; its vibrancy, welcoming people and extraordinary natural and architectural features make this an unusual and captivating journey.

Easter Island extension should be recommended to all. it was magical. The moai were amazing. Torres del Paine was also awe inspiring.
Excellent as with the trip we did with you to Mexico last year. We have been to many countries in Latin America but only this trip and Mexico with JLA. I wish we had discovered JLA before.
