Colombia Holidays + Cartagena + Amazon

Our wide range of Columbia holidays will introduce you to an undiscovered country, still mostly free of mass tourism and heralded as Latin American’s hottest rising star.
 
Colombia is an amazingly bio-diverse country, with the highest rate of endemic species in the world, with over 1,870 different birds (74 of which are endemic); over 450 mammals, including 41 different monkeys; 750 frogs and over 300 snakes. It is also the largest producer of emeralds in the world, the second largest flower producer (after the Netherlands) and the third largest coffee producer, with the best quality Arabica beans - all of which are hand-picked.
 
The size of France and Spain combined, and situated at the junction of Central and South America, this is a culturally diverse nation of friendly and happy people, who are proud to be Colombian. Because of this you are guaranteed an extremely rich cultural experience, with a captivating mix of charming colonial cities and amazing landscapes. Colombia boasts the highest bird count in the world and wildlife lovers can see giant anteaters on the open plains of Los Llanos, pink dolphins in the Amazon and sloths in Tayrona National Park.
  
Dominated by the magnificent Andes mountains, which split into three ranges as they enter Colombia, this country was colonised by the Spanish in 1499 who dubbed it the 'New Granada'. The capital of Bogotá is located in a high valley between the eastern and central Andes mountains and is the usual starting point for holidays to this beautiful country. It has an astonishing Gold Museum and a well preserved downtown area, La Candelaria. Outside the city, visit the remarkable Salt Cathedral situated inside a worked-out salt mine at Zipaquirá and don’t miss Villa de Leyva, one of Colombia’s most picturesque colonial villages.
 
The pretty Coffee Region around Pereira is the gateway to the Cocora Valley with its giant wax palms and birdlife, whilst Comuna 13 in the second city of Medellin offers a remarkable example of urban regeneration. You may want to climb the 740 steps up the gigantic El Peñol Rock at nearby Guatape, another very photogenic village. The archaeological site at San Agustín and the colourful Rainbow River in the Crystal Canyon are other prime attractions.
 
The most visited city in Colombia and the jewel in its crown is the superbly preserved Caribbean coastal city of Cartagena, its most famous World Heritage Site. This walled city was built in the 15th century to withstand attacks from pirates seeking the gold that was shipped from this port. The mix of old and new is stunning here, with cobbled alleys, balconies, bougainvillea and huge churches.

More information on Colombia holidays including Cartagena, Bogota, Medellin, Tayrona National Park & Amazon rainforest vacations:
 
In Bogotá, for spectacular views of the city take the cable car to the summit of Monserrate, at a height of 3,152 metres, or walk up if you are feeling energetic. And if adrenalin sports are your thing, head north to San Gil and the Rio Fonce, Colombia’s white-water rafting capital. Here you can also horse ride, fish and hike.
 
Bogota is more than matched for attractions by the beautiful Caribbean coastal city of Cartagena. After exploring this magnificent city, you can find all types of beach and water activities nearby, including scuba diving and snorkelling in the Rosario Islands with the finest fish restaurants on offer and exceptional coral & sea life. If its water sports and lots of activities you want, head for one of the many luxury hotels on the Baru Peninsula. If you have a higher budget, head for Colombia’s secluded Caribbean archipelago of San Bernardo for first class diving and snorkelling, as well as entrancing easy-going Latin vibe.
 
Nowhere can the country’s impressive bio diversity be seen better than in the thick tropical vegetation of Tayrona National Park, set on the Caribbean Coast to the east of Cartagena. One of Colombia’s most visited national parks, the verdant hills provide a spectacular backdrop to the pristine upspoilt white sandy beaches, although swimming in the sea here is limited by strong currents.
 
Colombian coffee is legendary and spending a few days at a secluded finca in the tranquil rolling hills of the Coffee Region, centred on Pereira, is a popular option on Colombia holidays. This region is also home to the country’s national plant, the rare and intriguing Wax Palm.
 
If time permits, to the north of the region, Medellin, Colombia’s second city is now very much on the tourist map. With its unique blend of art, tango and cable car network it has become a model of regeneration and was recently voted the world’s most innovative city. You can visit flower farms in the nearby mountains or travel to the unspoilt coast to experience the idyllic off-the-beaten-track beaches of the Nuqui region. With a rainforest backdrop, from June to October this is the place to spot migrating humpback whales.
 
It takes a light aircraft flight and a 4-mile (7-km) hike to visit the spectacular Crystal Canyon near the small town of La Macarena, but your efforts will be rewarded with a remarkable site. Southwest of Bogota, Colombia’s most impressive archeological sites are found near San Agustín and Isnos. Hundreds of pre-Columbian megalithic sculptures can be seen here. Dating from a civilization that lasted from 200 BC to 1300 AD, these stone tomb guardians have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, well worth a visit on holidays to Colombia.
 
In contrast to its lively cities, almost a third of Colombia is covered by largely unexplored Amazon rainforest, reached only by plane and boat. Located in the southeast of the country, Leticia is the gateway town for river trips deep into the wildlife-rich Amazon Basin and to Tres Fronteras, where Colombia, Peru and Brazil meet. This is a paradise for birders and those seeking an authentic cultural experience on holidays to Colombia.
