Why Colombia holidays are truly unique
Colombia is in relative infancy on the tourist radar, making it a blissfully authentic place for any visitor and Colombians are genuinely friendly, inquisitive people with a real passion for life, creating an exhilarating country that is hard to leave.
Occupying a strategic position, Colombia connects the Central American isthmus with the rest of the continent and borders five countries in total. The vast majority of the country is now recognised by the FCO as entirely safe to visit and the Colombian Tourist Office in the UK have even confronted the former negative image directly in its slogan, ‘The only risk is wanting to stay’. Rising visitor numbers prove that they have put guerrilla warfare and trafficking issues firmly behind them.
From old colonial splendour and white-sand Caribbean beaches to grand modern metropolises, coffee plantations and lost cities hinting to ancient civilisations, a holiday to Colombia is a must.
