Must see in Colombia
If you like colour, you will love Cartagena!
A colonial city bursting with colour.
Cartagena sits on the Carribean Coast and is a vibrant place to visit.
You can take a mud bath in the crater of the El Totumo volcano; check out the amazing architecture of the Iglesia de San Pedro Claver or enjoy the busy and bustling Bazurto market.
The Colombian capital, Bogota is a booming city. In 2011, graffiti was decriminalised so the street art in the city is phenomenal – a graffiti tour of the city is the best way to see it. Walking and biking tours of Bogota are a brilliant option to cater to different interests.
Dinner at Andrés Carne de Res is a must – you may be joined by up to 2000 other visitors and locals but this is a culinary and nightlife experience that you won’t forget.
The lost city of Colombia – believed to be more than 600 years older than Machu Picchu.
A Lost City Trek takes 7 days and will get you up close and personal with the remains of the city.
Zipaquirá Underground Salt Cathedral
Carved into the walls of an abandoned salt mine, the underground salt cathedral of Zipaquirá is a sight to behold. Located 650 feet below the ground, the cathedral is a popular destination and Catholic pilgrimage with Church Services happening every Sunday.
Colour and views – this is the best way to sum up Guatape.
A massive hydro-electric dam was created in the area in the 1970s – controversial at the time but it does make for a stunning vista.
If you are prepared to climb more than 700 stairs… You can also kayak around the lake or just enjoy the colour as you walk the streets of this beautiful city.
