Colombia is (without doubt) one of the most stunningly beautiful countries on the planet.

Major points-of-interest include the Caribbean coastline, with white sand beaches; historic Spanish cities, such as Cartagena and Santa Marta; tours of the Amazon Basin region in the east; the colonial buildings and history at Popayan, and many eco-tour options and interesting national parks.

Not to be missed are the archaeological ruins, mountain trekking, coffee plantations, water activities and beautiful vistas in every part of the country.
