Day 9 - Medellín
A Cultural Journey to Colombia
August 15 - 29, 2018
Colombia is truly a country like no other. Few countries encompass such beauty and diversity as Colombia, a land where rugged topography creates an elaborate variety of climates, vegetation, soils, crops and, of course, cultures. Colombia is the fourth-largest country in South America, and is unique in having both Pacific and Caribbean coasts.
Most of the country’s 45 million inhabitants are found in the central highlands. Journeys International will visit not only the larger cities of Bogotá, Medellín and Cartagena, but smaller towns such as the charming Villa de Leyva and the quaint villages of the Quindio or Coffee Region.
Colombia continues to fight stigmas of past violence and drugs but the thoughts of “otherwise it would be paradise”; are quickly diminishing, as Colombia is quickly becoming, quite simply, paradise. The warmth of the Colombia people and its interesting culture might very well make it your new favorite South American country.
As a current hotspot for international travelers, you will be hard pressed to find even trace amounts of its previous self. From its darker past come a more relaxed, colorful and much safer future. In fact, you will have a hard time finding a list of top new travel destinations that doesn't include Colombia. Journeys International has scheduled this comprehensive 14-day tour to explore Colombia highlighting the best it has to offer. Space is limited; join us in this special adventure!
