About the location

Colombia is hot right now; and I'm not just talking temperature. You may have heard a thing or two about Colombia and its violent and complex past that spanned five decades. Change, of course, didn't happen overnight, but today's Colombia is very different than it was in the 80s and 90s. Travelers aren't ignoring the transformation for good reason: Colombia is pure magic. Get rid of your preconceived notions of this South American country surrounding cocaine and danger, because Colombia deserves your time. Come for the Caribbean coastline and Cartagena's walled city; stay for the culture, rich history, and friendly people. Whether you're planning a week long honeymoon or a month long solo backpacking trip, this guide's got you covered.

Guide Summary

A curated guide to Colombia by a girl who's addicted to trip planning (and chatting to people about what she should do/should have done at a destination). This is the Colombia I fell for hard: one of art, exotic fruits, pristine beaches, dancing, history, great contrasts, and so so much more.
