ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

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.
  • Electricity: 110/120V, 60Hz
  • Times to Travel: There are two time periods during the year when travel to Colombia is most desirable. December to March and July to August are the best times to visit. Most of Colombia's festival and events take place during those months, thus planning ahead for accommodations is important.

    Colombia's location, in close proximity to the equator, means there are minimal temperature variations throughout the year.
