Colombia Vacations

Summary
Columbia Vacation Packages are jam-packed full of thrills, excitement, and adventures with more-than-you-can-fit-into-one-vacation exploration interests.
Caribbean coastline, the summits of the Andean, the Amazon jungle, ruins of archaeological & historical importance, and colonial charm...all at your fingertips when you are vacationing in Columbia! You can flake out on the beaches in the morning, then climb up the coffee-covered hills all the way to the 3rd highest capital city in all of the world. If you continued to climb upwards, you would reach snow-capped peaks cradling lakes of high altitude and unusual vegetation. At the bottom you will find grasslands with tropical tones (called Los Llanos).
A walk through the jungle (Ciudad Perdida) will take you to the ancient ruins of the Tayrona culture (11th Century) and a hike/climb up to the Andes can be achieved through the Parque Nacional Natural El Cocuy.
Crime-like situations have lessened over the years in Columbia, but there are some precautions you will need to take to ensure you are being vigilant about your safety. Do not accept anything from a stranger/new friend, including drinks or cigarettes. Keep your daypack, camera or other valuables very close to your body and tucked away out of sight if possible. Do not travel after dark if unnecessary, especially to an ATM machine; walks alone on the beach or from the beach, etc.
Culture
You are going to be exposed to mostly the language of Castillian or Spanish and in some areas, a little bit of English. There are many other dialects (over 70 of them) spoken here and there around Columbia (Creole, Romani and Amerindian just to name a few). You will see many influential cultures in and around Columbia, and such contributions come from the Middle East, the Caribbean, American, European, African, Spanish, Native American and Latin Americans. The ethnic diversity of Columbia is really unsurpassed anywhere else in the world.
Columbia Vacation Packages will undoubtedly further your knowledge about the culture of the people in Columbia, such as the national sport being Tejo. Football is also a big favourite, as is roller skaters, cycling, motorsports and boxing.
Exploration
Mystery is in abundance when you visit San Agustin (over five hundred man-sized ancient statues are located here) and Tierradentro is just as much of a mystery with its underground tombs dug out by an unknown culture. If you make your way to the Magdalena Valley, you can see the oldest archaeological sites (the Pubenza & El Totumo) that date back to 18,000 – 8000 BCE. If you go to the Puerto Hormiga site and some others, you can actually see evidence of the archaic era.
Columbia Vacations will provide you with the stepping stones to further your adventures and exploration via museums (like Museo Arqueologico la Merced), Cascada Chocolatal (waterfall), the Alto de San Andres (tombs), Caverna de los Guacharos (a cave with many connecting caverns via a stream), and the Zoologico de Cali.
Food
Ethnic groups, locally-sourced fauna & flora and cultural-bound traditions all participate in the varieties of cuisines that are found in Columbia. Vacation Packages in Columbia explore the ‘foodie’ side so that you can immerse yourself with pleasing flavours. Various regions utilize easy to obtain ingredients such as rice/maize, potato/cassava, and legumes, different meats (goat, pork, chicken and beef), seafoods/fish. Fruits (dragon fruit, araza, gooseberry, feijoa, papaya and passionfruit to just name a few) are also widely used as ingredients for some dishes.
Drinks commonly found in Columbia are fruit drinks, coffee and sugarcane juice drinks.
Nightlife
Vacations in Columbia really lean to kicking up your heels at night with a visit to the best bar around, the La Habana. A great garden bar can be found at El Parnaso’s, and for an artsy/laid back atmosphere, then head over to El Faro. If you are on the hunt for a hookah bar, then you will have a great time at Nargila’s. When hip is your target, then make a stop at the popular Calle 9 + 1; the vibe is great!
