With temperatures varying from 0 – 40°C, four mountain ranges, two coastlines and two deserts, Colombia is a nature lover’s dream. Despite rapid urbanisation reaching 75%, the country will, nonetheless, astound you, as you seamlessly travel from one incredible landscape to another. The Quindio Cordillera boasts the best mountain views in the region and is a perfect stop before heading to the Corcora Valley and Salento, where you’ll find a forest of wax palms, the country’s national symbol! Once you’ve explored Medellin, the town of eternal spring according to its residents, you can choose between trips to its small, neighbouring colonial towns (Santa Fe de Antoquia) or set off on a hike to the Guatape Lagoon and scramble up the El Peñol Stone, a remarkable rock formation. And when it’s time to hit the west coast, you’ll be able to island hop off the legendary Cartagena, where an incredible beauty, a laid back lifestyle and tropical cocktails (to be sipped by the water’s edge!) await. You may even find one of Francis Drake’s treasures, hidden by our home-grown Elizabethan privateer, who terrorised South America back in the day. Whatever you do, one thing’s for sure – Colombia is ready and waiting to be explored and now it’s up to you to embark on a truly amazing adventure!
