Luxury holidays in Colombia

With soaring mountains, terracotta-coloured deserts and lush rainforests that hide the remnants of ancient civilisations, Colombia has some of the most enthralling landscapes in all of South America. Add to that the character of some its most famous cities (the colonial charm of old Cartagena and the restless bustle of Bogota, for example), and you’ve got a country that has something for just about every type of traveller there is.

Destinations in Colombia

  • Placed in the centre of Colombia on the eastern edge of the moss-green Andes Mountains, this vibrant capital city – one of Latin America’s largest – has a rich history paved in gold and emeralds.
  • Set on shores of the Caribbean Sea, on Colombia's northern coast, this colonial-era city has inspired romantic imaginations since long before García Márquez drew on it for his novel, Love in the Time of Cholera.
  • Separated from the mainland by the Canal del Dique, idyllic Isla Barú is just an hour’s drive from bustling Cartagena, but has more in common with a far-flung Caribbean isle.
  • Small-town Marinilla might not be as dynamic and modern as Medellín (its closest city, a 40-minute drive away), but there’s a charming authenticity to it, with its farmers’ market and family-run businesses.
  • Fuelled by artistic talent, top-notch cafés, and a booming tech scene, once no-go Colombian city Medellín has challenged its past to become an urban jungle rife with culture.
  • Hanging loose on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, Palomino sets breezy beach-town charm against a backdrop of sacred Kogi land and unique biodiversity.
  • A swirl of vivid greens, Colombia’s Quindío department’s leafy lushness has made it the coffee-growing axis of the country.
