Step into the storybook that is Colombia. From its ancient burial sites to skyscraper cities overflowing with Spanish-inspired music and Cuban cuisine, no matter where your flight to Colombia takes you, there will undoubtedly be a story to tell. Colombia’s white-washed hillside homes and national parks serve as the backdrop for 26th-largest nation in the world, and the fourth-largest country in South America. It’s no secret however, that Colombia has seen its share of turmoil. Despite the country’s reputation for drug trafficking and ongoing civil conflict, Colombia remains today one of the top economic forces in South America. Look past the occasional political struggle that Colombia endures with its neighbours and you’ll see a country lush with natural wildlife, miles of beaches, unique shopping and of course, salsa dancing.
Travellers booking flights to Colombia won’t be disappointed. There are more than 200 festivals and events throughout the year that vary in length from one day to one month.

If the fiestas don’t thrill you, just relax and enjoy the scenery.
