There are a number of reasons why Colombia is such a popular destination for tourists, from its vibrant culture to delicious food and year-round tropical climate. However, there is one thing that is helping establish this destination as a tourist hot spot and setting it apart from all the others. This being, the natural beauty of the country itself. Booking a vacation to Colombia gives you the opportunity to kick back and enjoy nature in its full force. Here are 4 ways that you can enjoy the natural beauty of Colombia. It will have you coming back time and time again, that is for sure!
- Experience the Charming Colombia Caribbean Coast
Colombia has over 440,00 square miles of coastline that sit in front of the idyllic natural scenery of palm trees and rainforests, but each beach will offer you a unique experience. As you travel across the coastline and enter different cities, you can be certain that the no two are the same but will allow you to experience the best of nature. In Santa Marta, you can expect to enjoy stunning views of the mountains, emerald green reefs that are teeming with wildlife, and golden sand beaches. While in Rosario Islands, experience thick green forests and stunning views of the bay behind turquoise-colored water, stunning coral reefs, and pristine white sandy beaches. If both beaches sound like the ideal way to experience nature and relax at the same time, you can experience all this and more when you book one of the Colombia vacation packages. The tour will take eight days to complete, and you can truly experience the best of Colombia’s coastline.
- Explore the Tayrona National Park
Located in Santa Marta is the Tayrona National Park. There are 60 national parks in Colombia, but if there is one that will guarantee you the chance to kick back and enjoy nature, then this is it. Hike through a jungle bursting with wildlife before arriving at the stunning white sandy beaches that offer a Caribbean feel to them. Then take to the reefs and explore the hidden world below or simply lie back in a hammock and listen to the sound of the wildlife from the forests.
- Take a Trip Through the Amazon Rainforest
A third of Colombia is made up of the Amazon rainforest, so what better way to enjoy nature than through exploring here. However, make sure that you visit during the dry season so that you can make the most of your experience. While you might want to have your phone or a camera during this time to help remember your time here, the rainforest is the ideal place for putting these items away. Keep your phone in your pocket and truly embrace everything nature has to offer. Trek through the jungle or take to the river, keeping your eyes peeled to discover the wonder of nature.
Top Tip: Purchase a pair of binoculars and look high up in the trees to spot monkeys jumping to and from, or birds swooping through the air.
- Discover the Unique Wildlife That Calls Colombia Home
Lying just behind the beaches, you will find vast miles of jungle with all manner of different species living there. Keep your eye out for the more exotic creatures, such as the cotton-top tamarin (which can be found in the Tayrona National park) and the pink river dolphin (found in the Amazonia regions).
