Colombia Travel Expert
Seductive and captivating, the country was dragged back to our attention by Narcos. The reality, of course, is very different (and gladly so). With its spectacular Andean backdrop, buzzy colonial towns, endless virgin rainforest, and highlands scented with the rich aroma of coffee plantations, Colombia is a sight for sore eyes. We’ll show laidback Usaquen, home to Bogota’s best streetfood, before whisking you away to snorkel the reefs off Tayrona National Park. It’s heady stuff.

Colombia Highlights

With so much on offer in Colombia, it’s a travesty to come here and only scratch the surface. With the Andes as your backdrop play out your vacation on the beach, in the jungle or up in the highlands. We’ve left no stone un-turned in our exploration, so prepare to be charmed by this incredible country.

AN INTRODUCTION TO COLOMBIA

A country once considered repellently ‘dangerous’, Colombia has not only emerged as a safe, but a remarkable and beautiful country - welcoming to visitors. Today, Narcos is just a TV series. You can breathe a sigh of relief. Set against its beautiful Andean backdrop - scattered with jungle-fringed beaches, vast grasslands, coffee plantations and colonial towns - Colombia’s equatorial position makes it a haven for biodiversity. Welcoming you with open arms, Colombians are eager to show you their country. They might even challenge you to a game of Tejo (the nation’s throwing sport).

GET BUZZED FOR THE COFFEE TRIANGLE

Colombia produces some of the best coffee in the world. It’s no surprise, then, that we want to show you where the magic happens. Plunge deep into the country’s coffee regions at boutique haciendas where you’ll ride on horseback through the aromatic coffee fields with the Andean views ahead. Embark on a private tour of the coffee plantations, meeting those behind the cultivation process and unlocking the secrets behind the perfect cup of Colombian coffee.

TAKE A RUM TOUR

Tailor made tours in Colombia will take you to the places you never knew existed. Feel like royalty with a horse-drawn carriage tour down the cobbled alleys of Cartagena, or get your taste buds tingling with an exclusive rum tasting session before slipping on your salsa shoes and dance into the night. Travel to valleys where you’ll be the only person for miles, as these areas are only accessible via helicopter.

A TROPICAL HONEYMOON

Being the only South American country with both a Caribbean and Pacific coastline, Colombia is home to a plethora of tropical, jungle-washed beaches. After exploring Cartagena’s UNESCO inscribed Old Town and colonial buildings, ride the waves via speedboat to Caribbean paradise on the hidden Rosario Islands. Home to some of Colombia’s most diverse marine life, snorkel around the shallow waters or dive deep into the colorful coral reefs, before cruising ten minutes to the exquisite Las Islas Hotel.

LUXURY HOTELS IN COLOMBIA

Up on the green hilltops, in the picturesque towns, on the Caribbean coastline and in the depths of fragrant coffee regions, luxury hotels in Colombia are never far away. This country caters for anyone and everyone, from the nature lovers and sun-seekers to the history enthusiasts and adventure hunters. Colonial character is written into the very walls of the hotels, with their vintage artwork and cast-iron four poster beds. But a plunge pool is never far off.

COLOMBIA’S CAPTIVATING COASTLINE

We can’t think of a better way to watch the sunset over Caribbean waters than from the comfort of a swaying hammock on your private sun deck. The properties at Las Islas are second to none, with bungalows floating over the water’s edge, treetop suites dotted among the canopies and private island villas boasting plunge pools. Laced with jungle behind the shores, Colombia’s beaches are a tropical playground.

BOUTIQUE CHARM IN BOGOTA

Known as the ‘beating heart’ of Colombia and the vibrant capital, Bogota is a city of contrasts, featuring pastel painted townhouses and cobbled streets versus city scrapers and contemporary street art. The Four Seasons Casa Medina oozes authentic charm with its open fires, stone columns and hand carved doors, making our clients feel at home.
