Colombia is undergoing a transformation-it's more peaceful and stable in recent years but it still remains relatively undiscovered. That's good news for you, because you can experience Colombia's natural wonders and stimulating culture without the crowds you'll find elsewhere. The birthplace of Gabriel García Márquez, Colombia has a rich literary and cultural history. Cities like Bogotá, Medellin, and Cartagena are known for their street art and music. Nature lovers can hike through cloud forests and jungles teeming with wildlife, including more than a dozen species of monkeys. And don't miss Colombia's coffee-a guided tasting or a visit to a local café will have you buzzing.
If you're looking for a trekking adventure, an urban exploration or just want to get off the usual tourist path in one of South America's most exciting countries, G Adventures has got you covered.
