About Colombia

Complete Colombia Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Bogota

One of the biggest cities in the world at altitude (2,640 m), Bogota's cosmopolitan streets are full of cosy cafes, fascinating museums and old churches.

Day 2 Salento

Wander away the hours along the narrow streets and colourful stalls of sleepy Salento. Make sure to try the various trout dishes for which the town is famous.

Days 3-4 Coffee Estancia

Blessed with a perfect climate and a wealth of culture, Medellin has turned itself around to become one of the most exciting cities in South America.

Days 5-6 Medellin

Hop aboard a public bus to Medellin. Known locally as the 'City of Eternal Spring', Colombia's second biggest city boasts pleasant temperatures year-round and has experienced something of a rebirth in recent years. Brimming with modernist architecture, impressive museums and lush botanical gardens, it's a vibrant city paired with a pulsating nightlife.

Days 7-8 Cartagena

Wander around Cartagena's walled Old Town, peeking inside its candy-coloured buildings and spying the shady courtyards hidden within. Get a bird's-eye view from the top of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, or perhaps experience the therapeutic effects of a mud bath on a visit to a bubbling volcano. The nearby group of tiny coral islands and the stunning expanse of Playa Blanca (White Beach) reveal the hidden beauty of Colombia's Caribbean coast.

Days 9-10 Guachaca Region

A major tourist destination for beach-loving Colombians, Santa Marta is also the jumping-off point for a range of adventure activities - everything from exploring Caribbean reefs to jungle trekking.

Day 11 Tayrona National Park

Sample a slice of seaside bliss far removed from the tourist crowds in stunning Tayrona National Park. Hike through the dramatic mountain scenery, verdant rainforest and jagged rocks for a swim at some of Colombia's most glorious beaches.

Days 12-13 Villa de Leyva

Settle in among the quaint whitewashed villas and expansive cobblestone plazas of Colombia's best preserved colonial city. Don't miss out on a visit to the traditional farmers' market for the chance to snack on some local delicacies.

Days 14-15 Bogota

Legendary both for its history and beauty, the colonial architecture and huge city walls of Cartagena's picturesque old town perch alongside the sparkling Caribbean.
