WHY COLOMBIA IS INCREDIBLE

One of the world’s most unique destinations and one of El Camino’s personal favorites, breath-taking Colombia is dramatic in everything from its geographical diversity to its notorious reputation and subsequent radical renaissance. The beaches are just about as dreamy as you might expect from this region, and it is one of the most biodiverse countries on the planet. But the true beauty of Colombia lies in its people, remarkably resilient and unerringly creative, emerging from their difficult past with an infectious level of optimism and passion. Join El Camino Travel as we explore the Caribbean coastal town of Cartagena and the urban epicenter of Medellin while we meet the individuals who are restoring Colombia’s image and reputation around the world. Explore kaleidoscope-colored cities that smell of exotic fruit and freshly roasted coffee. Uncover a little-known delicious cuisine and dance the night away to champeta and salsa. And finally, curl your toes in the sand of some of the most beautiful beaches you’ll ever set eyes on.
