Colombia has something for everyone, whether you like climbing mountains, bathing in warm seas, eating wonderful food, chocolate, or coffee, visiting ancient sites, or hiking through rainforests.
Book yourself in advance on the walking tour with Real City Tours for your first morning in Medellin.
It's now safe and has escalators that lead you up the hillside and graffiti by Colombian and international street artists.
There are plenty of brilliant places to stay in Medellin: we recommended the art-inspired 23 Hotel, with its spherical windows and mountain views from the bathroom!
On the third day of this Colombia travel itinerary, you’ll want to head out on a day trip to the beautiful town of Guatapé.
It is delightfully set in the mountains, surrounded by the greenery of the banana and coffee plantations.
