The adventure continues: examine the collection at Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and admire the masterpieces at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica.

Historic Sites · Specialty Museums · Landmarks
Diverse in terms of landscapes, climates, and cultures, Colombia remains one of South America's least explored tourist destinations, overshadowed by its more popular southern neighbors. Combining the best of what the continent has to offer, a vacation in Colombia allows you to blend outdoor adventures with tours of picture-perfect cobblestoned towns dating back to the colonial era. Tourists on a Colombia holiday can easily hop from sun-kissed coastal spots to the hilly coffee-growing region, where thriving plantations quickly give way to a landscape of snow-covered volcanic peaks and the paramo--alpine ecosystems sheltering some of the rarest plants growing above the continuous forest line.
