Colombia is a land of much diversity and limited number of tourists. This is good news for anyone who likes travel for adventure and sightseeing. If you are traveling to Colombia and wonder what you must see, here are a few of the most sought after Colombia trips.
Bogotá is the capital of Colombia. It is a land rich with the imprints of time, in terms of architectural beauty and historical landmarks. It is definitely worth your while to visit the Capitol Municipal Palace. The old churches have a quaint charm of their own. Don’t forget to visit The Gold Museum and the Art Museum. After you have had your fill of the attractions on land, it is time to head down to Rio Negro for a spot of white water rafting. If water is not your favorite element, go trekking at the home of the El Dorado.
Romantic, beautiful, renowned, historical – that is Cartagena. The city is protected by UNESCO and is a marvel of sorts. If there is one thing to do here, it is to dunk yourself in a mud bath at the volcano. It is an unforgettable experience. Then, head down to the beautiful Rosario Islands to experience the unbelievable reefs and tropical life.
The Amazon trip:
This is one of the most attractive of all Colombian trips. Here is a rare chance to come face to face with the Colombia Amazon and its rich and variegated ecosystem. The forests, swamps and the jungles offer a wonderful opportunity to meet various species of monkeys, jaguars, otters and manatees, to name a few. There is a teeming bird population too. The Amacayacu National Park is a must see.
This is where the famous Tayrona National Park is, famed for long as one of the most beautiful spots in South America. The rain forests here are magnificent and a trek through the heart of some of these forests to reach the swimming beaches is an experience you will not forget in a hurry. For an out of the ordinary experience, try and spend the night in a fisherman’s cove.
The Culture tour:
Trips to Colombia are incomplete if you cannot taste the sheer diversity in the cultural landscape of Colombia. Bogotá is the hub of cultural diversity, covering some 33,000 hectares. It holds several reminders of a rich and colonial past. Of course, city bugs need not worry because you can easily find all the trappings of modern life here. While you are here, do not forget to visit the Archeological National Park in San Agustin. Locals may call it the Park of Stone Gods – and for good reason. Wonderful, life-sized aesthetically pleasing statues give you a peek into the beliefs and traditions of the past.
As you can see, Colombia trips offer you the unique opportunity to visit a wonderful place that is still pulsating with old traditions, abounding with natural beauty and filled with extreme diversities.
