Colombia is casting off the shackles of its past and being discovered by a new generation of travellers. Its diversity is breathtaking. The colonial jewel of the Caribbean coast, Cartagena has a cobbled beauty out of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel. The up-and-coming Caribbean city of Santa Marta is the jumping-off point for the thrilling Ciudad Perdida jungle trek. The coffee-making region’s classic Andean landscapes are made for hiking, visiting coffee plantations and grand haciendas. Bogota blends restaurants and expensive boutiques; Medellin has risen like a phoenix from the ashes to become one of the most artistic and vibrant spots and humid Cali is home to Colombian Salsa.
