Colombia: Colombia's heartland

Visit Us

Dissected by voluminous rivers carving valleys through rugged Andean ranges to marshy outlets to the Caribbean Sea, Colombia’s interior has always presented challenges to the traveller. River craft routes have now in many places been superseded by road and air networks, but both along the banks of the River Magdalena and along the mountain roads towards the Venezuelan border are a string of long forgotten colonial towns of great architectural beauty and a lazy lifestyle. Some of these, such as Villa de Leyva, Honda, Barichara and the river port of Mompós have become popular weekend spots. By contrast Medellín, one of Colombia’s principal cities, is now a pleasant place with parks, plazas and works of art.

What our experts say

The Andean interior of Colombia, cut through by massive rivers, will appeal to you if like me, you enjoy peaceful rural landscapes and out-of-the-way cultural history. If you appreciate dramatic scenery and don't mind travelling over rough, mountainous roads spiked by numerous hairpin bends. Here, you feel you are discovering a region little discovered by international tourists.  Colombians here are very friendly and keen to help but few speak English.
