About Colombia

The Republic of Colombia sits on the northwest part of South America, with a little cross-over into Central America.

As soon as you get here, you'll see the Spanish heritage (that the locals are immensely proud of) in its architecture, as well as the language they speak.

Come here to discover the true Latin American culture and explore the history of this famous land – there are sites here that date back to 18,000 BCE! Visit the museums throughout the country to find out more.

Enjoy the tropical climate throughout the year – depending on where you stay, the temperature may vary, so check before you go.

Whether you're here for the history, the sites, the beaches or the long history, Colombia will provide a rich and interesting vacation for you and your family. You'll probably want more than one week here, otherwise you won't be able to fit it all in!

What to do

Visit the old town of Cartagena, a picturesque city on the Caribbean coast.

Centuries-old colonial walls stretch for miles around this city, which has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Find your way around the cobbled streets and discover something new on every turn.

See the ancient abandoned city of Ciudad Perdida – discovered in the 1970s, this mysterious place lies deep in the Nevada de Santa Marta Mountains. If you like hiking, this is the place for you. It's a fantastic trail with breathtaking views all the way up.

Head to Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas – the Spaniards claimed this was their greatest fortress. It was built in 1657 and still stands tall today.

For a museum unlike any other, visit the Museo del Oro (the gold museum) in Bogota. The priceless exhibits are made from pure gold and are completely breathtaking.

While you're here, you should also spend a day on a beach. Whether that's just for lounging or taking part in the water sports available, you'll have a great time.
