Colombia Holidays - South America’s warmest welcome

Colombia has seen unprecedented investment in security and infrastructure as a result of political progress over the last decade, and this fascinating and colourful nation is fast emerging as one of South America’s most exciting new destinations for a South America luxury holiday – and deservedly so.

On a continent known for its openness and vivacity, here you are assured of the very warmest welcome from every Colombian you meet. The locals are proud of their country and always excited for you to share it with them – as the tourist board puts it, ‘the only risk is wanting to stay’ after your luxury holiday in Colombia!

The climate is dominated by altitude and proximity to the Andes. Bogotá is not quite the chaotic city some imagine, with pleasant districts featuring colonial architecture, parks, cycle-ways and tree-lined avenues. The Gold Museum has to be one of the continent’s most spectacular displays of pre-Colombian artefacts, while a few hours’ drive from the city brings you to pretty colonial white-washed towns with local markets selling artisan crafts, perfect for exploring whilst on your luxury holdiay to Colombia. Explore the Coffee Triangle’s lush plantations, sampling its finest Arabica blends, and take a horse ride among lofty wax palms.

Dance lovers should head to Cali, where everyone knows how to shake their thing to the salsa beat – whatever their age. Colombia’s most stunning colonial treasure is the beautiful, historic city of Cartagena. Laid-back tropical island retreats abound off the coast or even deeper into the Caribbean Sea, on Providencia and San Andres.

And of course, there is the Amazon, where one can experience the spell-binding sight of hundreds of brightly coloured parrots returning to their forest habitats, making the perfect Colombia luxury holiday.

With first-hand experience of Colombia’s beautiful landscapes and cultural heritage, we’re able to design perfect, awe-inspiring Colombia luxury holidays, seeking out the very best guides in a country whose tourism infrastructure is still in its infancy. We can offer you a truly amazing experience in this wonderful nation, and our portfolio boasts some truly charming and beautiful properties in off-the-beaten track areas.

Whether you wish to combine your trip with journeys to Ecuador or Venezuela, or just explore the country’s hidden corners in the utmost safety, you’re certain to want to return once you’ve experienced the warm Colombian welcome during your luxury holiday to Colombia.

We would love to hear from you. To find out more about tailormade Colombia luxury holidays, or to obtain inspiration for a holiday, please contact us by phone or e-mail, or complete our online enquiry form.
