The only country in South America to enjoy Pacific and Caribbean coastlines, Colombia ranks high in the list of the hottest travel destinations in the world. For a long time, Colombia wasn’t safe for tourists, and this means that travel is quite new to the country. As a result, you can still come across sights and attractions that are relatively unexplored and haven’t been splashed all over the internet.
The towns of Armenia, Pereira and Manizales combine to form the most enigmatic region of Colombia. Home to coffee plantations, the exotic Andes, luxe resorts and tropical vegetation, the region presents images and landscapes that are usually reserved for our dreams. The locals are also famous for being incredibly friendly and there are ziplining and horseback riding adventures to choose from as well.
With the old-city of Cartagena at the forefront, Colombia presents beautiful reminders of its colonial-era architecture in the form of cobblestone towns that feel like they’ve been transported from another era. Barichara and Mompox feel like those unspoiled sleepy towns we often see in the movies and Villa de Levya looks like a 16th century oasis.
