25 Photos That Will Inspire You To Book a Flight To Colombia
Nowadays, Colombia is not quite like the show, Narcos, portrays it. It is a “country that is rising from the ashes,” according to a long-time expat I met in Cali. It certainly is – tourists from around the world have flocked to Colombia in recent years. This is largely due to the end of a 52-year civil war that devastated the country. Although poverty is still high, things are looking up for Colombia. Now is the perfect time to visit this vibrant country with tremendous natural beauty! I’ve compiled 25 photos that will inspire you to visit Colombia.
There are so many bucket list destinations in Colombia, but I only had a week to explore. I went to Cartagena and Cali – two cities that showcase Colombia’s diverse cultures, lifestyles, and landscapes. Cartagena is a mesmerizingly colorful city with Spanish-style architecture. It is on the northern coast of Colombia and surrounded by islands. Cali, on the other hand, is a small, sleepy city in the south, with a landscape of rolling hills, lush greenery, and sugar cane stumps. It is a perfect escape for nature lovers!
The best way to travel around Colombia is to fly. There are well-run airports and daily flights that connect the country’s major cities. You can also take a long-distance bus, but you may be on the road for a couple of hours. For shorter distances, you can normally just walk. Cartagena is a walkable city due to its narrow streets and enclosed Old Town. Cali is a hilly city so I got around with a taxi. Without further ado, here are 25 photos that will show you the amazingness of Colombia.

If you choose to go for a mud bath, be sure to drink LOTS of water before! The heat was so unbearable that I passed out for a few minutes. Yikes! Luckily, I felt fine after drinking water and taking a nap. Don’t make the same mistake I did!
