Looking for some beach time to escape the winter blues? Then look no further than Colombia's completely undiscovered Caribbean idyll of Providencia. Deserted white sand beaches, turquoise seas teeming with wildlife, not to mention the 3rd largest barrier reef in the world, so the diving is fantastic. The best part is that you have almost the whole island to yourself as very few tourists even know about it! #Colombia #Providencia #isladeprovidencia #escapethewinterblues #getsomewintersun #caribbean #caribbeanparadise #thewholeislandtoyourself #whitesandbeaches #turquoisesea #scubadiving #barrierreef #lobster #ourlittlesecret #hiddengems #bethefirsttogothere #toogoodtobetrue #luxurytravel #luxurylifestyle #tailormadeholidays

Popayan is a little frequented town by foreign tourists but really is one of Colombia's colonial gems. A large historic centre is full of gorgeous old buildings, made pleasing on the eye by a decree that the facade has to be painted white. Of course, this being Colombia, there's always room for a yellow, brightly-painted church in the mix! The leafy central courtyard of the town's excellent university is also bursting with colour and the hum of students deep in conversation. The town's Easter celebrations are particularly renowned and are recognized by UNESCO as part of the world's cultural heritage. A fascinating, out of the way town that really is worth a visit #Colombia #Popayan #worththeeffort #colonialheritage #colonialgems #whitetowns #eastercelebrations #UNESCO #tailormadeholidays #luxurytravel #discoversouthamerica #discovercolombia #hiddengems #comeandseeforyourself #notmanytouristsaround #achurchoneverycorner #universitytown #leafycourtyards

A little bit of luxury in the jungle? No problem! @calanoa_amazonas is a boutique lodge deep in the Colombian Amazon. Simply yet tastefully decorated, making maximum use of the abundance of flowers and plants from the surrounding jungle, you even have a little part of the jungle in your private bathroom. Great harmony between nature and man. Only 4 cabins give the place an exclusive feel, some with river views, others hidden amongst the trees. You feel properly immersed in the forest yet have a comfy double bed, delicious food and plenty of hammocks around for recovering after a hearty walk through the jungle. It's a great base for your Amazon adventure! #Colombia #Amazon #deepintheheartofthejungle #jungleadventure #alittlebitofluxuryinthejungle #offthebeatenpath #themightyamazon #discoverforyourself #discovercolombia #discoversouthamerica #luxurytravel #tailormadeholidays #ineedavacation #funinthejungle

A decorative oar hand-painted by members of the indigenous Mocagua community, deep in the heart of the Colombian Amazon. Made up of predominantly the Ticuna tribe, it is fascinating to see how western influence has started to creep into their way of life yet they still manage to preserve their traditions, their harmony with nature and their own language and customs. Many people think of the Amazon as a purely nature experience and there is certainly plenty of wildlife on show. Yet it also offers the chance for a culturally enhancing experience as you interact with the members of these native communities and witness them going about their daily life #Colombia #Amazon #Ticuna #native #tribe #indigenous #handpainted #traditionalwayoflife #getbacktoyourroots #culturalimmersion #deepintheheartofthejungle #junglelife #themightyamazon #discovercolombia #discoversouthamerica #tailormadetravel #travelupriver #bespokeholidays #getawayfromitall #funinthejungle

The 4 day trek to the Lost City is one of Colombia's most rewarding treks, but it's not for the faint-hearted. It's more about the journey than the destination, as you hike for 4 days through the dense jungle that surrounds the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Sacred land for many of Colombia's different indigenous tribes, especially the now extinct Tayrona people after whom the national park is named, you are likely to encounter other tribes which still inhabit the area. Sleeping free in hammocks by night, it's a journey of discovery both of yourself and of an ancient, more spiritual way of life #Colombia #lostcities #lostcitytrek #laciudadperdida #journeyofdiscovery #ancienttribes #indigenous #tribes #jungle #sierranevada #parquetayrona #getlostinthejungle #getoffthebeatentrack #theroadlesstravelled #tailormadetravel #ineedavacation #takemethere #getawayfromitall #discovercolombia #discoversouthamerica

With an average of just over one festival taking place every single day of the year somewhere in Colombia, it's no wonder it's just been named the happiest nation on earth, again! One of the biggest ones is coming up soon, the Carnival of Barranquilla in February. An explosion of colour, music, dance and festivities, it's one of South America's biggest street parties. Just one more reason to come and visit this wonderful country! #Colombia #happiestnationonearth #streetparty #carnival #dance #music #explosionofcolour #discovercolombia #discoversouthamerica #luxurytravel #tailormadeholidays #comebeforethecrowdsarrive #comeandseeforyourself #kickbackandrelax #joininthefun

Parque Tayrona, Colombia's national park on the Caribbean coast, has some of South America's most beautiful beaches. The Sierra Nevada mountains, the world's highest coastal mountain range complete with snow-capped peaks only a few kilometers from the sea, form a stunning backdrop while lush, dense jungle comes almost to the water's edge. It's a great mix of pure, raw wilderness with a Caribbean beach vibe! #Colombia #parquetayrona #sierranevadamountains #jungleonthebeach #worldsbestbeaches #Caribbean #snowcappedpeaks #wherethejunglemeetsthesea #thewholebeachtoyourself #getawayfromitall #kickbackandrelax #offthebeatenpath #southamericabeaches #discoversouthamerica #discovercolombia #luxuryholidays #tailormadetravel #discoverforyourself
