TRAVELLING TO Colombia

Why visit? Often associated with Caribbean resorts and coffee making but usually overlooked for its rich history, colonial architecture and mind blowing nature, Colombia can introduce you to one of South America’s roads less travelled. 

Generally, Australians start their Colombia tour in Bogotá, the country’s capital. Blessed with one of the most gorgeous settings any city can have, being surrounded by the Andean mountains, Bogotá draws visitors with its cultural vibrancy. Apart from boasting some of the country’s most important historic landmarks such as the Salt Cathedral and Villa de Leyva, the city impresses with its impressive street art and a thriving food and bar scene.

Up in the north of the country, Cartagena is a charming seaside city on the Caribbean coast, known for its picturesque ‘old town’ where you can find some of Colombia’s finest examples of historic architecture whilst also being home to stunning resorts along the Caribbean coastline.

A bit further up the Caribbean coast, Tayrona National Park ticks all the boxes for the adventurous explorer with its narrow forest trails leading travellers along seemingly untouched nature, palm-shaded coves, coastal lagoons, rainforest and rich biodiversity.

For an insight into archaeology, head to San Augustin and Popayan in the south of Colombia where you can explore ancient sites and enjoy the views of charming historic small towns. 

How to get there? Being in the north west of South America, it is almost as easy to get to Colombia from Los Angeles as it is from Santiago, Chile. Which route you take is probably more likely to be determined by what you’d like to do en route - Patagonia or Peru, go via Santiago, Mexico or the US, go via LA. QANTAS actually offer a split fare into or out of LA, returning via Santiago – for those who want to do a loop.
