When we told people we were going to Colombia, this is what most people were expecting it to be like (my ah-mazing photoshop skills are indeed employable just in case you’re wondering):
Turns out that Colombia is actually rich in diverse landscapes and culture.
What? No way! Colombia? More than just cocaine?! Sí, señor!
In fact, Colombia is the only country in South America that has a coastline on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea – so yes, ample beach time everyone. There are so many in fact that you will hardly have enough time to tick it all off. Despite visiting some of the most beautiful waters we’ve ever seen, we missed out on was Providencia, one of Colombia’s best-hidden gems. We’ll be back!
The towns are vibrant and colourful, filled with friendly locals that adore foreigners. You can’t help but fall in love with the music and the freedom that comes with dancing everywhere – in the streets, at the park or at the club.
With world-renowned coffee, the tallest palm trees in the world and horse riding to waterfalls – you can see how we didn’t want to leave this place.
We’ve picked some of our favourite photos of Colombia to inspire your inner wanderlust and hope that it is now a little higher on your bucket list than before.
And just in case you need any more convincing, here are an additional 5 reasons by The Flyaway Girl.
