10 days in Colombia

10-Day Tour of Colombia: 

What does discovering Colombian mean to you? Colombia is a country with so much to offer and so much to see that there is an endless amount of opportunities for adventure and discovery that 10-days will never do it justice. Traveling with LiveColombia, we focus on producing a once-in-a-lifetime vacation that highlights the most important and special touch points of this majestic country. Every region in Colombia has its own distinct culture, food, music and lifestyle. From the bustling metropolis of Bogota, to the coffee fields and quaint towns of Solento/Armenia and of course the salsa capital of the world, Cali - Colombia is a country that offers it all. Further locations not to be missed include the Colombian Coast of Cartagena, Santa Marta and Barranquilla, as well as the hidden gem of Bucaramanga, Santander with its colonial towns of Barichara and it's hub for adrenaline junkies San Gil (canoeing, rafting, paragliding, cave exploration and so much more).
