COLOMBIA

Colors. Coffee. Coasts. Colombia.
This South American country has truly stolen our hearts with its rich culture, incredible adventures and wild biodiversity. There is truly no place like Colombia - at least that we have visited. If you want to dive headfirst into the place that created the term "magical realism" then you need to book a ticket to the Gateway of South America.

Oh, Colombia. A land of plenty: plenty of people, plenty of cultures, plenty of wildlife and of course, plenty of exciting adventures. From snorkeling along the Caribean Coast to wandering around historic colonial ports to trekking in a place that reminded us strongly of Mars to even exploring not only the largest palm tree in the world (the wax palm) - but also the largest forest of wax palms in the world. Colombia is the type of place you could spend years exploring and still feel like you have only scratched the surface. Luckily, it is a great place to slow down and stay awhile.
