I don’t know if you’ve been over to See Colombia Travel‘s homepage, but there’s a great deal going on there. One of my favourite sections is undoubtedly the photo section because not only does it give me a good opportunity to look at some beautiful photos of Colombia, but it brings together a small artistic community with a unified goal: to promote, reflect and represent Colombia through a lens.
With that said, today’s post is going to be in the spirit of photos and I’ve decided to collect some of my favourite photos from the website and from my personal collection in the hope that, as they say, pictures speak a thousand words. Please enjoy and, if you want to, share these photos around. I can write for years about Colombia but nothing compares to seeing the country for yourself. From your Mac in the US, this will have to do for now:
The Tatacoa Desert is the second largest arid area in Colombia and one of the most beautiful places here. You can get here by taking a 30 minute flight from Bogotá to Neiva, where a MotoTaxi will take you the rest of the way.
Bogotá is Colombia’s capital and one of the biggest cities in the world. Full of history and things to do, it’s a must-do on any trip to Colombia.
Medellín used to be considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world. Now it’s one of the most desirable cities in South America to live in.
Cartagena is a jewel in South America’s crown and the Colombia’s tourism capital.
Tayrona National Park is a sprawling array of beaches, mountains and jungles that mesmerise all that visit.
For some of the best beaches in Colombia, be sure to head to the island of San Andres, just north of the Caribbean coast.
Colombia’s Amazon region is home to some of its most diverse, fascinating wildlife and is where the country meets Peru and Brazil.
