A unique city of contrasts, Bogotá will present travelers with a hectic balance between the contemporary and the traditional; the peaceful and the chaotic. Take in centuries-old plazas and churches from the colonial period that stand in the shadows of towering skyscrapers. Visit the Gold Museum to learn about Colombia’s pre-Hispanic history. At the Botero museum, guests may have the unique chance to enjoy a special guided tour with a relative of Colombia’s most renowned painter, Fernando Botero. In Zonas G and T, enjoy private visits to trendy ateliers, galleries, and studios before savoring Colombian and international cuisine at some of the top restaurants in the city’s gastronomic scene.

Coffee Region

Also known as the Coffee Triangle, the coffee region is located in a lush, rural area of Colombia. The majority of Colombian coffee is produced here and is considered some of the best coffee in the world. As heavenly as the coffee is, nature is the real draw of this beautiful area. The combination of lush green valleys, and impressive peaks make it the ideal place for outdoor adventures. Ride on horseback through the rolling hills and rich farmland of private estates that produce delicious crops like pineapple and citrus fruit in addition to the famous coffee. Enjoy a spectacular trek through the high Andean cloud and pine forest of Valle de Cocora, named after a local indigenous princess. Here, in addition to a variety of fauna, travelers will also find the Quindío wax palm, the tallest species of palm tree that grows to nearly 200 feet.


A sizzling, colorful contrast to the cooler, tranquil coffee region, Cartagena’s vibrant Caribbean culture guarantees a good time. This UNESCO World Heritage Site enchants visitors with its cobblestoned streets and beautiful colonial architecture. Surrounded by Las Murallas and dotted with churches, monasteries, plazas, palaces, and mansions, Cartagena’s charming old town is a highlight of a luxury tour to Colombia. Travelers can enjoy a private rum tasting with a sommelier who will explain the spirit’s ingredients, distillery process, and history. Learn about Cartagena’s extraordinary cultural heritage through the rich, exuberant cuisine at the city’s high-end restaurants or in a private cooking class with a personal chef. Explore another essential part of Colombian culture at a privately-owned 16th century home with an exciting personal salsa lesson from a professional dancer.

Rosario Islands

Just off of the coast of Cartagena in the clear Caribbean waters, the Rosario Islands boast relaxing beaches, an abundance of marine life, and expansive coral reefs. Guests can visit the islands as a day trip from Cartagena or spend a few nights in one of the treetop or sea-side bungalows at Hotel Las Islas on Baru. This luxury property boasts a private beach and bay where guests can enjoy various marine activities, including stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, and snorkeling. After a day of sun and sea, guests can enjoy some pampering in the full-service spa, sip a cocktail at the rooftop bar, or savor Caribbean delicacies in any one of the three restaurants.


A city with a controversial past as the home of Pablo Escobar, Medellín has reinvented itself as a creative, progressive place with friendly people. Located in a mountain valley with a pleasant temperate climate, the city of the “eternal spring” is also known for having the first metrocable in South America. The metrocable is a type of public transit system similar to a gondola lift, and it still transports locals and visitors alike up and down the steep hills. After a ride over the colorful rooftops of the city on the metrocable, visit Plaza Botero to see sculptures by Fernando Botero, who was born in Medellín and became Colombia’s most famous artist. With an expert guide, travel about 1 hour outside of the city to the ruins of La Catedral Prison, built to hold Pablo Escobar according to his rather extravagant specifications.


In Colombia, nature-lovers and trekking enthusiasts who like to get off the beaten path visit Tayrona National Park. Here, the lush Colombian jungle meets the sparkling Caribbean sea. Hike through dense forest on the former lands of the Tayrona tribe before arriving at some of the most stunning beaches in Colombia. In the forest, travelers can find over 100 different mammal species, including howler monkeys, pumas, deer, and various bat species. Bird watchers will delight in the 300 plus species of aviary species, such as the famous condors and white eagles.
