Many first-time visitors to Colombia are overwhelmed by the sheer number of things to do in the country. Not only is there plenty to explore, it’s a big country. Even if you have several months to spend in Colombia, you won’t come close to seeing all of it. Destinations tend to be spread out and require some advanced planning to get to. Bus and driving routes between major cities can take entire days, and transportation to remote towns and villages might only be possible on certain days of the week. An extensive air network will help shave some time in transit and might be your only choice for reaching some isolated attractions. Keep in mind that as modern and sophisticated the country might appear in some places, it’s still Colombia. Once you leave the cities, things move at a slower pace. Sometimes when the sun is out or rain is beating down on you, they don’t move at all. Planning too tight of an itinerary is never a good idea here. Our itineraries are meant to be suggestions of what is possible—with flexibility to shave off a day or take an extra stop when needed. Relax, and take some time to stop and smell the coffee!
