Colombia

From Caribbean white sand beaches through tropical rainforests to mountains topping out at 18,000 feet, Colombia’s landscape is as varied as its culture. Visit the tropical seaport of Cartagena, throbbing with salsa and nightlife, and the cultural capital of Bogota in the center of the country. Travel nearly 600 feet beneath the earth into the Zipaquira Salt Mine Cathedral to see the beautifully-lit stations of the cross, carved by miners themselves. Tour the mansions, villages and farms of the Coffee Triangle to discover what makes Colombian coffee, grown on the slopes of the Andes Mountains, so seductive and delicious.
