£2982

A glorious park full of contemporary sculpture, a sizzling nightlife and an involving museum that traces the country’s history back to pre-Colombian times.

They’re just a few of the attractions that make Medellin such a great opener on your journey to Colombia’s Pacific Coast. And then comes the coast itself; a symphony of beautiful beaches, deep jungle and diverse wildlife.

Not to mention picturesque towns and tiny villages – like Santa Fe de Antioquia and San Jeronimo – that seem to have simply shrugged off the effects of time, to give you an intimate glimpse into the traditional lifestyle of rural Colombia.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
