    Colombia

    Major Tourist Attractions: National Coffee Park, Cali Zoo, Hacienda Napoles, Tayrona National Natural Park, Gold Museum

    Don’t let Colombia’s past turmoil deter you from visiting the tourist spots in this beautiful country.

    Forget Colombia's bad boy reputation. Known for many years as a dangerous haven for FARC rebels and drug kingpins, the country has made enormous strides to clean up its act. Now, there are a handful of conflict areas where travel is forbidden, but everywhere you would visit as a tourist is considered safe.

    There is a lot to see and do in this country, which is twice the size of France. Visitors will be surprised by the enormous amount of cultural and ecological diversity. In just a short amount of time it is possible to visit steamy Amazonia, the temperate and rugged Andes and the tropical coastline. Colombia's capital, Bogota, is a chilly mountain metropolis of 9 million people, whereas Cartagena is a diverse and colorful Caribbean city. Down south is the Zona Cafetera, home to modern Colombia's most famous export: coffee.

    No matter which of Colombia's many offerings you choose to explore, prepare to be overwhelmed by the history, the food and the warm and welcoming people.

    Some of the many unique activities found only in Colombia include:

    • Celebrate at Baranquilla's Carnivale, the second largest on the continent
    • Hike into Tayrona National Park, a hidden paradise
    • Learn to salsa! It's Colombia's national dance
    • Visit Pablo Escobar's elaborate mansions in Medellin
    • Sample a bandeja paisa, a heart peasant lunch which includes rice, beans, arepas, fried eggs, chorizo and chicharron.
    • Drink fresh coffee straight from the plantation in the Zona Cafetera
    • Journey by plane deep into the Amazon
    • Enjoy a huge variety of tropical fruits and fruit juices
