TOP 5 PLACES TO VISIT IN COLOMBIA | BEST CITIES IN COLOMBIA

Huffington Post:

The country of Colombia has seen a massive increase in tourism and travellers in the past 10 years making it one of the best, most affordable and exciting places in the world, to travel to.

The north of Colombia, on the north side of the arm which connects Colombia with Panama, is situated on the Caribbean. Here you will find cities and towns like Cartagena de Indias, as well as Santa Marta, Barranquilla and more. South of the Caribbean is lush jungle, temperate rainforest and the big cities of Medellin, Bucaramanga, and the capital of Bogota.

So, prior to your travels to Colombia, you need to learn which cities and towns to spend time in, and which you can avoid. Here, I run down my top 5 places, cities and towns to visit when you travel Colombia.
I advise you to watch the video of top 5 places to visit in colombia, and the best cities in Colombia, instead of reading the description as the video outlines and shows images and video clips of the places in Colombia that I have visited to give you an idea of what to expect when you visit.

Starting at my 5th favourite place in Colombia, Santa Fe de Antioquia just outside Medellin. Incredible Colombian town on the opposite side of the valley from the touristy Guatape, Santa Fe is a beautiful escape from the growing Colombian tourism.

Santa Fe de Antioquia:

Number 4, is the tiny town of Salento. Nestled in the hills of the Colombian coffee region, Salento is a sleepy, classic Colombian town that even though it is becoming more and more popular, it still remains a little town that functions around coffee production and tourists visiting the Cocora Valley.

Click below to see the video of my top 5 things to do in Salento, Colombia.

I also have a few videos of my time in Salento, and the Cocora Valley.

Salento, Colombia Coffee Tour:
Cocora Valley, Colombia:

Number 3, best place in Colombia, are the twin towns of Santa Marta, and Taganga. Seperated only by a small hill, the coastal city of Santa Marta and Taganga are twin towns. Santa Marta is a big city catering to all your needs, and Taganga is a sleepy fishing village which acts as a perfect escape from the busy city.

Tour of the city of Santa Marta.

Walking through Taganga, Colombia:

Number 2 and number 1, favourite place or city to go to in Colombia has come in as a tie. I could not decide between Cartagena and Medellin so they have tied for the number 1 spot. Cartagena is the definition of enchanting, where simply walking the tight cobblestone streets feels special, with the only downside being the humidity.

Cartagena, Colombia |

Medellin is one of the most fun, characterfilled cities I have ever visited and I have only good memories from there. The beautiful greenery spread throughout the valley, the fast paced way of life, happy people, and again, only one downside which is the fact that its not on the ocean.

Parque Lleras, Medellin, Colombia:

Those are my 5 favourite places to visit in Colombia. I hope this helps when selecting the locations where to travel in Colombia and remember to subscribe and go through my channel for more first hand videos of each of these places mentioned in this top 5 list.

10. Popayan
Popayan is one of Colombia’s most impressive colonial cities. Located in southwestern Colombia, it is sometimes called the “Ciudad Blanca” (White City) because its buildings are chalk-white. Founded in 1537, its mild climate quickly attracted wealthy Spanish families who built mansions, schools, churches and monasteries.

9. Medellin
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Medellín was considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world, home to Colombia’s infamous cocaine cartel. But when drug lord Pablo Escobar was snuffed out in 1993, Medellín began to bury its troubled past and rebounded tremendously.

8. San Andres y Providencia
San Andrés and Providencia Archipelago are two island groups that are located closer to Nicaragua than Colombia in the Caribbean. San Andres is the largest island, and also the capital.

7. San Agustin
San Agustin is a laidback little town surrounded by awesome landscapes and the remains of a forgotten civilization. One of the most intriguing ancient sites in Colombia, the archeological park of San Agustin is home to more than 500 monoliths, statues, petroglyphs and sarcophagi. Most of the stone carvings at San Agustin were created between 100 A.D. and 1200 A.D.

6. Zona Cafetera
Travelers who love their java will definitely want to visit Zona Cafetera (Eje Cafetero) where almost half of Colombia’s coffee crop is grown on the slopes of the Andes. Visitors can learn more about coffee at El Parque del Café, a park that has a botanical garden with coffee plants and an amusement park.

5. San Gil
San Gil is an old colonial town in northeast Colombia. Founded by the Spanish in 1689, it was named the region’s tourism capital in 2004. The designation honors mainly the main outdoor activities, such as mountain biking, rafting and kayaking.

4. Villa de Leyva
Villa de Leyva may be a small town less than a four-hour drive from Bogota, but its Plaza Mayor is one of the biggest town squares in South America. At one time people were executed on this immense square, which is now used as a gathering place for celebrations and festivals, such as the onion beauty pageant.

3. Bogota
Bogota, sometimes referred to as “the Athens of South America”, was first settled by indigenous peoples, though the founding date is generally set at 1538 by a Spanish explorer. Today, the city is one of the largest cities in South America and Colombia’s capital.

2. Tayrona National Park
Tayrona National Park is a must-see place for travelers who enjoy nature and exploring old ruins. Located on the north Colombia coast, the park offers a variety of ecosystems, from swamps to scrublands to cloud forests.

1. Cartagena
Cartagena is the bustling city where Kathleen Turner’s character Joan Wilder begins her Colombian adventures in Romancing the Stone. Hopefully, travelers will get their visits off to better starts.

— About Exploring Colombia —
Colombia, a country which many only know because of it’s violent past, has been on my list since I went to South America for my first long-term trip in 2012. 6 Years later and with 5 weeks to spend it was finally time to properly explore my country number 9 on the continent.

For the first part of the trip I’ll be traveling with my mate David to the historical city of Cartagena, some picturesque Carribean islands and to the city of Medellin where we get to learn about the violent past and the transformation of the country. After a few days in the capital Bogota I’ll be joined by my good friend Stefan to learn salsa and take on some outdoor adventures in Cali before heading up to Santa Marta where we checkout the most beautiful beaches, float down rivers and hike through the mountains.

Why Colombia as the next Travel Destination

Sktarts founded in December 2017 are professional at photography and video creation. Colombia was our first big project, we travellet 6 colleagues through the country for weeks and recorded everything with Gopro, Dji Drone and Nikon D7200 and that's what came out of it.

We landed in Medellin and experienced 3 wonderful days in Medellin with ATO Tours.

Medellín is a beautiful city, modern and yet true to its regional characteristics. It was founded in 1616 in the scenic Aburrá valley but remained small until the coffee boom. It later became the center of a textile industry, and today is a modern, vibrant city.

After we followed Cartagena and stayed there for 5 days.
Cartagena, a gorgeous fishing village on Colombia's Caribbean coast, has excellent beaches, a historic old town (that's entirely walkable) and beautiful colonial architecture. It's also one of the safest places in the country, so it's no wonder it's a popular port of call for cruise ships. Need a break from exploring the cobblestone streets? Stop at an outdoor cafe for excellent pastries and people-watching.


After Cartagena we were in the beautiful hostel Casa el en Agua in the middle of the sea.
Discovering unique places can change your trip.. Profoundly. We believe the Casa is such a place. We’re talking a solar-powered, eco-friendly backpackers hostel run by our cheerful, local crew. The hostel sits among the San Bernardo Islands, just two hours by boat from Cartagena. The Casa - a former holiday home owned by a Colombian family - is a 23-year old wooden house built on a concrete foundation under the sea water. Over time, coral formed on the foundations, much to our delight, as colorful sea life can now be viewed whilst you’re chilling in your hammock.
As you will be vacay-ing on a secluded, private island, you and your fellow travelers, determine the hostel vibe. It is you and your temporary family who decide whether to detox, unleash your inner yogi and enjoy the serene environment, or crank up the volume and get the drinks flowing. Whatever your choice may be, we dare to say we offer the best hangover cure in South America: a bed-to-ocean dive from the first floor deck into clear Caribbean waters. If that doesn’t cure things, your other option is to find yourself a hammock & enjoy a refreshing cocktail from our ‘Bar en el Agua’.

Then we went on to San Andres beautiful little island in the Caribbean. Most of the videos were spontaneously created, we had at the end over 3h film material and that's what came out.The coral island of San Andres is a diverse ecosystem of reefs, geysers, groves, and cays. Needless to say, it’s perfect for diving, snorkeling, and outdoor exploring. This paradise has multicoloured warm waters and 12 mangrove forests, and the beach cedars of Johnny Cay are like natural condos for beach birds. Keep an eye out for overlooked pirate treasure at Morgan’s Cave before chowing down on rondón, a signature Caribbean dish of fish, pork, conch, plantain and coconut milk.

Colombia is a very beautiful country and very diverse, Jungle, mountains, beautiful beaches, big cities like Medellin and Bogota. Fantastic and recommendable.

Top 10 Best Places to Visit in Colombia !! Tourist Attractions in Colombia

Colombia has something that will please most travelers, from sandy beaches of the Caribbean and Pacific coasts, to the Andes Mountains and the Amazon rainforests. Its heritage reflects the culture of its indigenous peoples as well as the Spanish who began settling here in the early 15th century. A couple of decades or so ago, Colombia was not on the tourist map because it was not a safe place to visit. However, the government is working hard to change that image, making it safer for travelers to enjoy the many features Colombia offers. An overview of the best places to visit in Colombia:

10. Popayan
Popayan is one of Colombia’s most impressive colonial cities. Located in southwestern Colombia, it is sometimes called the “Ciudad Blanca” (White City) because its buildings are chalk-white. Founded in 1537, its mild climate in the Valle de Cauca quickly attracted wealthy Spanish families who built mansions, schools, churches and monasteries. The city is famous for its Maundy Thursday procession as well as its nightlife.

9. Medellin

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Medellín was considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world, home to Colombia’s infamous cocaine cartel. But when drug lord Pablo Escobar was snuffed out in 1993, Medellín began to bury its troubled past and rebounded tremendously. These days, the increasing number of tourist who come here find an inviting, modern city with one of the country’s best climates.

8. San Andres y Providencia

San Andrés and Providencia Archipelago are two island groups that are located closer to Nicaragua than Colombia in the Caribbean. San Andres is the largest island, and also the capital. Providence Island was initially settled by English Puritans who used slave labor on their plantations and took up privateering. White sand beaches and palm trees are San Andres’ best features.

7. San Agustin

San Agustin is a laidback little town surrounded by awesome landscapes and the remains of a forgotten civilization. One of the most intriguing ancient sites in Colombia, the archeological park of San Agustin is home to more than 500 monoliths, statues, petroglyphs and sarcophagi. Most of the stone carvings at San Agustin were created between 100 A.D. and 1200 A.D. They include representations of human figures, smiling and sneering monsters as well as animals such as snakes, birds and jaguars.

6. Zona Cafetera

Travelers who love their java will definitely want to visit Zona
Cafetera (Eje Cafetero) where almost half of Colombia’s coffee crop is grown on the slopes of the Andes. Visitors can learn more about coffee at El Parque del Café, a park that has a botanical garden with coffee plants and an amusement park. The Zone has a gold museum featuring pre-Columbian artifacts.

5. San Gil

San Gil is an old colonial town in northeast Colombia. Founded by the Spanish in 1689, it was named the region’s tourism capital in 2004. The designation honors mainly the main outdoor activities, such as mountain biking, rafting and kayaking. Couch potatoes may enjoy a visit to the cathedral built in 1791

4. Villa de Leyva

Villa de Leyva may be a small town less than a four-hour drive from Bogota, but its Plaza Mayor is one of the biggest town squares in South America. At one time people were executed on this immense square, which is now used as a gathering place for celebrations and festivals, such as the onion beauty pageant.

3. Bogota

Bogota, sometimes referred to as “the Athens of South America”, was first settled by indigenous peoples, though the founding date is generally set at 1538 by a Spanish explorer. Today, the city is one of the largest cities in South America and Colombia’s capital. Once considered a place to avoid, Bogota has cleaned up its act and is fast becoming one of the best places to visit in Colombia.

2. Tayrona National Park

Tayrona National Park is a must-see place for travelers who enjoy nature and exploring old ruins. Located on the north Colombia coast, the park offers a variety of ecosystems, from swamps to scrublands to cloud forests. For many travelers, the park’s biggest attraction is its beaches, set in deep bays and shaded with coconut palms. In fact, Tayrona beaches are among Colombia’s most beautiful.

1. Cartagena

Cartagena is the bustling city where Kathleen Turner’s character Joan Wilder begins her Colombian adventures in Romancing the Stone. Hopefully, travelers will get their visits off to better starts, though the city is just as busy as when it was one of the key Caribbean ports from the 16th to 18th centuries. Fought over by various countries, Cartagena was one of the most heavily fortified cities in South America; these fortifications can still be seen today.
