Once a very untouchable country, Colombia today is more open to international travelers than it has ever been. The soaring peaks of the Andes and the motley ecology of the lowlands contributes to the indefinable nature of this ever-evolving nation. You will be able to swim in the Caribbean, hike through the Amazon, climb to exhilarating heights and, at the end of the day, sip premium coffee and cocoa with the locals.
The independent nation of Colombia is located in the northwest corner of the South American Continent, just across the Canal from Panama. To understand the infinite diversity of Colombian travel, one must understand its size and neighbors. Colombia is more than twice the size of France and is the only South American country to have a border with both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Airfare to Colombia is also a fantastic place to start in South America as Colombia shares borders with Brazil, Ecuador, Panama, Peru and Venezuela.
One thing you sure don’t want to miss when you’re visiting the city of Cartagena, is the colourful architecture in the beautiful old walled city. You’ll see both colourful streets as well as the tradition white mansions – all in the same area.
