Bogotá is Colombia’s capital and has a vibrant history on display for all to see. Founded by conquistador Gonzalo Jimenez de Quesada in 1538, it is now home to nearly eight million inhabitants from Spanish, English, and native backgrounds. Between the bustling day markets, vibrant nightlife, and lush history, this city has it all.
Medellín is the second-largest city in Colombia and certainly one of the most modern. Perhaps the most beautiful city in South America, it is a modern mecca of commerce nestled in the Aburrá Valley of the Andes Mountains. Moreover, it is connected by rail to many neighboring cities and towns, making it an excellent location to start your tours of Colombia.
Cartagena is beautifully situated on Colombia’s Caribbean coast and connected to the rest of the country by major roadways, which makes getting to and from all your other destinations that much easier. Enjoy the magical and timeless history of this nearly five-hundred-year-old city as you gaze upon a treasure trove of colonial, republican, and Italian architecture.
Then, if it suits your fancy, enjoy an hour-long boat ride to one of the outstanding beach islands just off the coast.
The Rosario Islands are a beautiful archipelago of islands in the Rosario and San Bernardo Corals National Natural Park. The park service is responsible for keeping the islands and their surrounding coral in pristine condition for not only you but also for the gorgeous wild flora and fauna that call this region home. Salty breezes, brilliant turquoise waters, and delicious local cuisine make these islands the perfect getaway when you travel to Colombia, South America.

Natural beauty, complex history, vibrant culture…whatever it is you’re after, Colombia has it, and it’s just waiting for you to seize your moment.

Tayrona National Park boasts some of the most important and beautiful landscapes that Colombia has to offer. Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, this tropical jungle is a veritable explosion of botanical variety.
Trek through the southern misty rainforest to get to the brown hills of the west, which are peppered with cacti. Navigate the verdant backdrop of wetland and lush flora to the north where the forests give way to unspoiled sandy beaches. This is Colombian nature at its most natural.
The Coffee Triangle sits at the western foot of the Andes. Responsible for producing the Colombian coffee so loved the world over, the growing regions of Caldas, Risaralda, and Quindío, along with their capital cities, are what make this area so vibrant.
Here, you have your choice of drinking freshly brewed coffee in the very plantation where it was grown, sampling Colombian gastronomy at local five-star restaurants, and dancing your way through the nightlife of any city you choose.
Colombia offers everything from five-star spas to local B and Bs. Stay in world-renowned hotels, or experience a variety of accommodations. Alluring Americas handles all your reservations, which brings you one step closer to a soothing siesta.
Among the coffee trees and mangroves, see if you can spot the elusive yellow-eared parrot or a rare black-billed mountain toucan.
If you find yourself debating between indulging in antiquity and exploring city life, remember that Bogotá has the best of everything that Colombia has to offer.
Most importantly, if you make Bogotá your home base, you’ll never be too far from any other town you may want to explore. Whether you’re a shopper, a historian, or an explorer, you can find what you’re looking for in one unique location.
Medellín, with her clean contours and highland tropics, her stone facades and spring-like temperament, is a modern beauty. Enjoy wonderful food, drink, and traditional Colombian music in this, the City of the Eternal Spring.
Then, when you rest your head at night, you’ll know that all you have to do tomorrow is wake up and walk outside to experience it all over again.
Cartagena is a beautifully balanced mix of modern luxury and antiquity. Stay in hotel accommodations originally built hundreds of years ago in the Old City, or rest for a spell in a modern upscale hotel in Bocagrande.
Either way, you’ll have access to ancient monasteries, beach resorts, palaces, and nightclubs. (And the food’s not bad either.)
Travelers will need a passport in order to enter Colombia. However, if you are intending on staying less than ninety days, you don’t need to worry about a visa.
