Best of Colombia Travel Package

Overview

Once one of the most dangerous countries in the world, Colombia has done a complete 180 to become one of the hottest places to visit in Latin America. The country has worked extremely hard to change its image. Now the Only Danger about traveling to Colombia is not Wanting to Leave! The country has a ton of great places to visit, but we narrowed down our Best of Colombia Package to include Bogota, Medellin, Cartagena & San Andres.

Best of Colombia Package Highlights:

  • Take in the view of Bogota from atop Monserrate Mountain
  • Get an insider look of kingpin Pablo Escobar’s life in Medellin
  • Dance a little salsa and have shot of aguardiente in Cartagena’s old town
  • Relax on the beach & take in some snorkeling in San Andres

Bogota is Colombia’s beating heart, an engaging and vibrant capital cradled by chilly Andean peaks and steeped in sophisticated urban cool. It is a great starting or ending point in your journey as it’s Colombia’s main hub with plenty of direct flights from the world’s top cities. It is a great city escape and offers an endless variety of great restaurants, interesting museums, vibrant nightlife, history & culture.

Locals call Medellin “City of Eternal Spring,” because of its incredible year-round weather. The city is fast becoming a tourist hot spot for fine dining, trendy bars and, of course, world-class coffee. The city was recently named One of the Most Innovative Cities in the World for its great infrastructure.

Cartagena is Colombia’s #1 tourist destination. The city’s walled city and fortress were designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You literally feel like you have been taken back in time into colonial Spain. The Caribbean City offers beaches, nearby islands, history, a bustling restaurant scene, and warm, friendly locals.

If you are looking to relax and enjoy a Caribbean paradise, San Andres needs to be in your Best of Colombia itinerary. The island is located off the coast of Nicaragua. It offers perfect sunsets, white beaches with crystal clear water, and friendly local islanders.
