Arguably the most diverse country in South America, Colombia offers an exciting array of places to visit from the vibrant capital of Bogotá, through the rich, verdant landscapes of the coffee region to the stunning UNESCO-listed walled city of Cartagena and archaeology of San Agustín.
Soaring Andes peaks give way to an unspoiled Caribbean coastline via cobbled colonial communities and its own Amazonian jungle. Having shed its unsavoury image in recent years, it is now safe to travel to areas that were previously off limits. The influence of earlier colonisation is always apparent in the Spanish architecture, and of course the language, yet Colombia has retained an immense variety of its own cultural traditions in the form of distinctive handicafts, colourful dress, lively music and frequent festivals.
