Just two hours away from Miami and five from New York, Colombia is magical realism. The country boasts modern cities with cultural charm, spectacular natural beauty, the Andes mountains and the Amazon rain forest, and beautiful beaches on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Dive in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean to see multi-colored fish and go whale watching in the Colombian Pacific while respecting the animals and environment.
Colombia is an equatorial country with amazing variance in altitude and climate zones; the climate is tropical along the coast, eastern plains, and Amazon, cold in the highlands of the Andes meaning that snow can be seen even though you are in the tropics.
Colombia was included on the Forbes list of “The 10 Coolest Places to Visit” featuring Colombian culture, cuisine and highlighted Cartagena as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. For dining, you’ll find everything from the ubiquitous cheap, delicious Colombian home-style meals to world-class upscale and modern culinary arts in the big cities, with cuisines from all corners of the world represented. Cali is the world’s capital of salsa, keeping the music going long into the small hours of the morning.
