In the midst of a new era in its history, Colombia is settling in to peacetime again after more than fifty years of internal conflict. Now is the time to dive deeper into the country’s multifarious treasures, to go beyond the traditional tourist route with one-on-one encounters and insider experiences. Thanks to a deeper understanding gathered on each excursion, brilliant cities like Bogotá, Medellín, and Cartagena dazzle even more brightly in topics like history, social regeneration, the arts, and cuisine. Further afield we delve into archaeology in the pre-Colombian sculpture park at San Agustín park and the traditional lifestyle and colonial architecture of Barichara.
