If you haven’t noticed, Colombia is having a moment right now. In Cartagena, it’s all about that Caribbean joie-de-vivre: days spent floating in crystalline waters, nights spent shimmying to champeta music in the cobblestoned streets; and the backdrop, an impressive display of colonial architecture, is punctuated by street art and a healthy smattering of street vendors selling fresh fruit and warm arepas.
In Medellín, residents have taken the reins back post-Escobar, and given the city the Brooklyn treatment: pour-over coffee shops roast locally grown beans, Colombian designers fill hip boutiques with clothing and wares you’ll want to check a bag for, and restaurants like El Cielo give fine dining that Latin oomph.
Yet one thing remains consistent throughout the country: Colombians take pride in sharing their culture with anyone who visits.
Solo travel and safety are two of the biggest topics discussed in the Women Who Travel Facebook group, and we hope this trip will help travelers feel empowered about both. With experts like El Camino Travel leading the charge, we want female travelers to feel excited to hoof it through Colombia solo or with a friend—or two, or three—and meet other passionate travelers along the way.
