Travel to Colombia in luxury to discover Caribbean islands, colonial cities, jagged coastal national parks, lush green hills, Amazon jungle, tropical grasslands and Andean coffee plantations.

Why travel to Colombia

Discover the salsa capital of the world in the West, the wonderful Amazon nature in the South, your own tropical paradise in the North and the stunning Sierra Nevada Mountain range in the North East overlooking fascinating fishing villages. As well as these rich landscapes there are also some incredible cities and Bogota, Cartagena and Medellin, in particular, will show you the Colombians’ sense of fun, their pride in where they come from and their rhythm of life.
There are so many up and coming boutique hotels that there is a place to please everyone, particularly in Cartagena. The owners are generally the stars, who complete travellers’ trips with their infectious enthusiasm, their drive to make their hotel different and having an eye for detail.

Our tailor-made holidays to Colombia can be taken at any time of the year but the most pleasant months of the year tend to be December to April. However, our Destination Experts will curate a custom travel itinerary with the best places to visit depending on your preferred month of travel.
