There’s plenty of adjectives that can be applied to Colombia; vibrant, colourful, rugged, untouched, beautiful, eclectic…yet none of these words do the country any justice. The essence of Colombia can only truly be understood when one experiences it first hand. So, how to encourage you to take that journey of enlightenment? Well, we thought an insightful guide brimming with stunning imagery is a good place to start, so we’ve created ‘The Essence’, a newspaper that dissects, bit by bit, the elements of this fascinating country that together form the true ‘essence’ of Colombia. From local food recipes to the low down on the country’s best beaches to a look at Colombian city life, we’re pretty sure a read of ‘The Essence’ will paint a clear picture of one of our favourite countries in the world; a picture we’re hoping will inspire you to swim the waters of the Caribbean, trek the hills of the Andes and salsa the night away in Bogotá.
What’s more, we’ve also featured QR codes throughout the book, so be sure to scan these with your smartphone to be transported to our up to date online content on all things Colombia.
