Colombia Things to See and Do

follow us

The notorious reputation of Colombia's mountains and jungles as the province of terrorists, armed revolutionaries, paramilitaries, drug cartels, and even ordinary kidnappers and thieves makes the very idea of venturing beyond Colombia's cities brave and/or foolish. While it is true that a decades-long civil war indeed had made many of Colombia's rural areas dangerous, a surprisingly high portion of Colombia's breathtaking mountains and sierras are safely accessible.

With so many things to do in Colombia, it's no wonder it has become one of South America's most popular destinations. Stroll through the Saturday market in Málaga, dip your feet in the sands of the Caribbean coast, take a hike through the Lost City, or simply savor the flavors and sounds of Colombia in one of its largest cities. There are plenty of things to do in Colombia; you just have to be ready to find them.
