More About Travel to Colombia
From Pereira, in the heart of Colombia’s famous coffee-growing region, where you can learn all about coffee production while picking up a trick or two on how to froth your cappuccino, to Cartagena, a long-popular port-of-call for cruise ships, with its narrow streets, plazas and colorful handicraft stores of Las Bóvedas, and impregnable Spanish fortress of San Felipe, cultural opportunities abound in this country. Not far from Cartagena, in the charming old fishing village of La Boquilla, once a slave colony, tranquil beaches, marshlands and mangroves can be explored on a dugout canoe.
If your Colombia vacation package takes you north to visit Taironaka, a nature reserve where traces of the Tayrona civilization of 600 BC are still in evidence, you can slip in a boat trip along the Don Diego River where you can explore the ancient terraces, some still in farm use by the indigenous Kogi people.
A visit to the Colombian capital of Bogota can include a trip to the Gold Museum, with the world’s greatest collection of pre-Hispanic gold works, and/or a visit to the Botero Museum, which features the works of the country’s most famous artist. Or you can choose to visit Monserrate, a church perched high above and overlooking the city that is accessible by cable car.Regardless of where else your trip to Colombia takes you, you will definitely want to visit the twenty-five acre underground cathedral in Zipaquira, located not far from the capital. Built directly into a salt mine, the Stations of the Cross at this cathedral, along with other carvings, are hewn from the salt and are eerily illuminated.
