Any traveler who sets foot on Colombian soil is immediately struck by the strength of the myths that have built it. Myths that are as ancient as the Mayan civilization. Medieval myths full of mysteries and adventures, like that of Eldorado. Modern myths featuring, of course, the infamous character that was Pablo Escobar.
Behind these legends lies a country of authenticity and the chance to travel and encounter very welcoming local people. It will be an unforgettable encounter with the all-powerful nature that reigns over this country, from the Andes, majestic and unchanging, to the abundant Amazon forest and the beaches of the Archipelago of San Andrés with their crystal-clear water. Colombia is a place that offers a path to adventure, a path to the unexpected, leaving its mark on you in so many different ways. Will you be bewitched by this resplendent Colombia, exploring it as you walk the streets of Bogotá and the Candelaria neighborhood? Will you be drawn into the mystery when you visit the Archaeological Park of San Agustín and its pre-Columbian treasures?
Put on your explorer's hat and set off to discover the mountains of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, having a go at finding the lost city before tasting gamitana, a typical Amazonian fish. Take the Medellin cable car (called the metrocable) and enjoy an inspiring panorama of the "green city".
Colombia can be explored in many ways and it is perhaps at night, like in the city of Cali, that you discover its most human side, with a festive, not to say somewhat wild, culture and nightlife, just like the national dance: the salsa. The bravest among you will join in with the December féria, continuing the party right through the night and enjoying a coffee, the national drink, at dawn.
