Go Wild in Colombia
Outdoor adventure awaits

With such a varied terrain Colombia is a playground for outdoor adventurers and nature lovers. Dive among untouched coral reefs off the coast in Tayrona National Park, explore the pre-Colombian site of San Agustin by horse, go mountain biking around the attractive colonial town of Villa de Leyva, white water raft in San Gil, Colombia's adventure capital and hike through dense jungle to secluded beaches.

Recommended places to visit in Colombia

Tucked in the northwest corner of South America with terrain that stretches from the tropical beaches of the Caribbean coast to the dramatic mountain ranges of the Andes and the lush Amazon rainforest, Colombia is not short on natural beauty and impressive contrast with fun modern cities, charming colonial towns and beautiful coffee estates to boot. Here's some of favourite spots in Colombia worth seeking out.

Bogota - Cosmopolitan and Colonial

The skyline of the financial district in Bogota, the capital of Colombia

Studded with skyscrapers and surrounded by mountains, Bogota is a pulsing city at the heart of Colombia. Having left its turbulent past behind, this capital city is now a trendy hub of activity, boasting a wealth of stylish boutiques, gourmet eateries and striking street art. Wander through the streets lined with colonial mansions, sparkling glass high-rises and other more humble dwellings as the energy of Bogota flows through you.

Zona Cafetera - Coffee Galore

Situated in the rolling hills of Colombia, the coffee-producing region known as Zona Cafetera will leave you breathless (and not just because of the altitude). The landscape here is made up of verdant plantations, surrounded by towering trees and wrapped up with low wisps of cloud. Check out one of the many coffee farms where the famed arabica bean is grown and processed or take a tour around one of the historic villages as you absorb the stunning scenery of the region.

Tayrona National Park - Tropical Paradise

With a dazzling bay comprising perfect golden sand and sparkling turquoise water, there’s nothing not fall in love with at the Tayrona National Park. Further in to the park, coastline turns to thick, lush rainforest, in which dozens of endangered species roam freely. Seek out some magnificent wildlife as you make your way through the park’s leafy canopy. Originally home to hundreds of ancient settlements, this park is ideal for nature lovers and history buffs alike.

Cartagena - Queen of the Caribbean

Old meets new with the churches and skyscrapers of Cartagena in Colombia

The gem in Colombia's crown, Cartagena wins on all counts when it comes to beauty. With colourful colonial buildings lining the streets and Bocagrande beach spreading its sandy shores along the city’s coastline, Cartagena is the kind of place that captivates your soul and delights your senses. Take a dip in the medicinal mud of the nearby Totumo volcano or grab a coffee in one of the numerous cafes while you immerse yourself in Cartagena’s Caribbean vibe.

San Agustin - Megalithic Mystery

For those looking to delve into Colombia’s ancient history, there are few places in the country better than the San Agustin Archaeological Park. Imbued with ancient mystery, this UNESCO World Heritage site boasts the largest number of religious, megalithic monuments found in any one site across the world. Here you can come face-to-face with dozens of intricately carved sculptures of various deities and mythical creatures with compelling expressions and features.

San Gil - Adventure Capital

White water rafting on the rivers that run through San Gil, Colombia's adventure-sports capital

While San Gil isn’t the biggest or best-known destination in Colombia, it is rapidly gaining in popularity thanks to its abundant opportunities for extreme sports adventure. Travellers to this region can try their hand at paragliding, white-water rafting or caving, just to name a few. For those seeking something a bit more leisurely, the town’s old square and the Parque El Gallineral are both beautiful locations to take a stroll.
