Colors. Coffee. Coasts.
Oh, Colombia. A land of plenty: plenty of people, plenty of cultures, plenty of wildlife and of course, plenty of exciting adventures. From snorkeling along the Caribean Coast to wandering around historic colonial ports to trekking in a place that reminded me strongly of Mars to exploring forests of the largest palm trees in the world.
Colombia is the type of place you could spend years exploring and still feel like you only scratched the surface. Luckily, it is a great place to slow down and stay a while. Explore my in-depth Colombian adventure travel guides below.
