Colombia is currently going through a wonderful transformation. After years of daunting, negatives headlines plaguing this country of superlatives, Colombia is at long last coming into its own. Blessed with an abundance of different natural landscapes from arid deserts and huge savannahs, to snow-capped volcanoes and white sand beaches, Colombia offers the visitor a staggering variety of experiences. A classic, relaxing beach holiday can be enjoyed on the Caribbean, the raging rivers and deep caves surrounding San Gil have turned this little town into an adventure sports’ paradise, the Amazon jungle in the far south is a nature lover’s paradise and the Zona Cafetera, where the majority of Colombia’s “black gold”, coffee, is produced, offers authentic stays at coffee fincas, amidst abundant greenery and mountain scenery.
