Colombia

"I fell in love with Colombia the first time I came in 2005. The people, the energy, and the scenery, and now the improved security situation, make it an experience not to be missed"

Security

Security

Cartagena and Santa Marta are very safe in my experience .. the days of the Narcos are long gone...

Colombia has taken great strides since the 1980’s. There is always a visible and friendly police presence to put your mind at rest.
Outdoor Adventures

Outdoor Adventures

Colombia’s varied terrain is fertile ground for outdoor adventurers to dive, climb, raft, trek and soar. Colombia boasts alfresco pleasures in all corners.

Some of the continent’s most iconic trekking is here, and is dramatically varied: Ciudad Perdida is a multiway jungle walk to the ancient ruins of the Tayrona civilization, while numerous ascents inside Parque Nacional Natural El Cocuy places intrepid hikers on the highest reaches of the Andes.
Providencia’s world-class reef spells aquatic heaven for scuba divers, and whale-watchers on the Pacific coast can see majestic humpbacks in the wild.
Diverse Landscapes

Diverse Landscapes

Colombia’s equatorial position affords it a diversity of landscapes matched by few countries. A slight tinkering in altitude takes you from sun-toasted Caribbean sands to coffee-strewn, emerald-green hilltops in the Zona Cafetera. Continue to climb and there’s Bogotá, the bustling cradle of Colombia and third-highest capital city in the world.

Throw in another few thousand meters and you find snow-capped peaks, high-altitude lakes and the eerie, unique vegetation of the páramo. The bottom drops out as the Andes give way to Los Llanos, a 550,000-sq-km swath of tropical grasslands shared with Venezuela, often called the Serengeti of South America.
Cartagena

Cartagena

Cartagena is becoming one of the most luxurious destinations in the world and it is not hard to see why. This vibrant and colourful City is also known for its rich culture dating back to Colonial times. Cartagena de Indias or “Corralito de Piedas” as the locals like to call it, was founded in the 15th Century and has grown to be an ultimate vacation Caribbean destination.

The Historic Centre has been beautifully restored and we will be staying in one of the most sought after Villas. Nearby is the beautiful headland of Baru and the Islas Rosaries where many of the water based activities will take place. Cartagena has fine restaurants and a lively night life.
Santa Marta

Santa Marta

Santa Marta is South America’s oldest surviving city and the second most important colonial city on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. Nearby Tyrona National park in the Sierra Nevada range is the focus of our visit. With Crystal clear water and a mountain back drop. We will stay in eco lodges nestled in the lush jungle with their own private beach., popping it to the old city to dine and take in the energetic night life.
