Colombia is a country of dizzying variety. This tour will introduce you to the fascinating blend of adventures offered within Colombia’s borders. You’ll see some of Colombia’s most important cites, such as bustling Bogotá and colonial Villa de Leyva. Despite (or perhaps because of) the rapid development that characterizes nearby Bogotá, Villa de Leyva manages to stay distinctly peaceful and exudes an atmosphere of calmness in every one of its cobbled streets. As you wander through the maze of unspoiled colonial buildings, you’ll invariably stumble upon many cafes, restaurants and shops that can easily turn a short break into a week spent relaxing in Villa de Leyva. Charming, quaint and full of atmosphere, Villa de Leyva will enchant all those who venture there. All this and much, much more on your trip to Colombia with See Colombia Travel.
