Cartagena

City of Heroes

The site of the continent's first Spanish colony, Cartagena retains much of its colonial flavor thanks to a World Heritage-listed old town, encircled by old walls and protected by imposing fortresses.
Visit Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas and Plaza Santo Domingo for their historical value. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Walled City of Cartagena and Torre del Reloj. Change things up with a short trip to Playa Blanca in Isla Baru (about 1h 5 min away). Next up on the itinerary: get outside with Outdoor Activities, pause for some serene contemplation at Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver, admire the striking features of Las Bovedas, and take an in-depth tour of Museo del Oro Zenu.

Bogota

Athens of South America

Colombia's heart and soul, Bogota has earned the nickname "Athens of South America" thanks to its abundance of universities, libraries, and lower-level schools.

Step out of Bogota to go to Zipaquira and see Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira, which is approximately 54 minutes away. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica, examine the collection at Museo Internacional De La Esmeralda, and steep yourself in history at Bolivar Square.

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.
