Colombia

It’s time to delete your mental images of cocaine refineries in the jungle and armed guerilla attacks. But If you’re still looking for adrenaline in Colombia, you’ll still get your fix. Only this time it will be while off-roading in La Guajira, diving deep into the coral reefs of San Bernardo del Viento, or flying over the Ciudad Perdida, the lost Inca city 650 years older than Machu Picchu. As Colombia’s cities, beaches, and forests become increasingly safe (as its new tourism motto proclaims: the only risk is wanting to stay!), tourists are beginning to discover the unique beauty, sensuality, and rhythm of this nation. We’ll take you from the crystalline waters of the Caribbean and Pacific Coasts to the heart of the Amazon, passing through the cobbled colonial streets of Colombia’s major cities.
