Bogotá

Colombia’s capital city is a revelation, from its many parks and tranquil suburbs to a stunning historic centre and one of the world’s most exciting and vast collections of pre-Colombian gold treasures.

This is without doubt a large, sprawling capital city but certainly worthy of a stopover for a few days to explore. Delve into the cobbled streets of Candelaria, where you will find some great small museums, such as the Botero museum, dedicated to one of Colombia’s most famous artists and his iconic paintings and sculptures.

Stroll, or even cycle, through one of the many pretty parks in the suburbs alongside the locals on a Sunday, as the main roads are closed to traffic. Have dinner by candlelight in a romantic restaurant at the top of Monserrate Peak overlooking the whole city and the Andes behind.

Immerse yourself in pre-Colombian history in the famous Gold Museum, filled with floor upon floor of intricate gold treasures, jade masks and many more, one of the most impressive collections of artefacts in one place anywhere in the world.

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
