  • Colombia's landscape is extreme - in just one visit, you can experience snow-covered volcanoes and mountains of the Andes. Northern and Western Colombia has tropical beaches and deserts, and vast grasslands called Los Llanos, in the East. Lush green environments and bright sunshine make December-March the perfect time to visit this country. For more pleasant experience, July - September is also better for exploring the countryside, Jungles and Beaches.
  • Colombia is considered a safe country for woman and solo travellers. It has a positive link between Ecuador and Peru situated on the southwest. Panama on the north-west. Brazil and Venezuela on the east. Colombia has a coastline on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Learning a few basic words in Spanish will help you to communicate easily. One can easily travel by bus, train or hire a bike, bicycle in Colombia but to enjoy the serene beauty and sights of Colombia opting a road trip would be great.
  • What to see in Colombia?

  • Colombia's Caribbean beaches, Pacific coast, Amazon rainforest, Andes mountain range and Desert plains appeal to ultimate magic for the visitors. Colombia’s diverse culture is unique in history. Towns and stone paths, enigmatic statues, burial urns and impressive gold and pottery constitute part of a cultural heritage that provides insights about the beliefs and way of life. Catholicism is the main religion in Colombia, and Spanish is the most common language spoken and influenced by Spanish culture.
  • Bogota is the largest city and capital of Colombia, also known for its excitement and vibrancy deep-rooted in its sophisticated streets, and it is located at a great altitude of 2640 meters amidst the Andean Peaks. Cartagena or Cartagena de Indias, capital of Bolivar department, is the fifth largest city in Colombia. Located on the Carribean coast, the city is known for its grand colonial mansions, plazas, beautiful beaches and a vibrant lifestyle. Medellên is the second largest city in Colombia and the capital of the Antioquia department located in the northwest of the country.
