Things to Do in Colombia

Want to know some of the standout things to do in Colombia? Then have a look through our handpicked suggestions below...

1. The Gold Museum, Bogota

So plentiful were Colombia’s gold supplies that its indigenous peoples used to make fish hooks out of it. Amongst over 36,000 pieces of gold on display, the dark room that slowly reveals a floor of gold is a definite highlight.

2. Cartagena, San Marta

This walled town (known as ‘Old City’) is the main attraction for those traveling to San Marta. There’s an undoubted appeal to just getting lost down the narrow winding streets and seeing where you end up...

3. Tayrona National Park, Santa Marta

Dedicated to preserving the area’s fragile ecosystem, this national park offers travelers a unique glimpse into the stunning natural landscape and beautiful quiet beaches that cover Columbia.

4. Plaza de Toros, Santamaria, Bogota

Bullfighting undoubtedly isn't for everyone, but it’s rare that you get the opportunity for a free peek. In addition to the real deal – which primarily takes place during the Bullfighting season in January and February – this massive structure permits morning visits where you can see young bullfighters honing their skills in a slightly less gory way.

5. Coffee Fincas

Colombian coffee is one of the most prestigious in the world, and visiting a coffee ‘finca’ (farm) is a great way to learn more about its production. Cheap, informative and great fun, you'll also get to sample the freshest coffee you’re ever likely to taste.
