Hi and welcome,
I am an Aussie expat who decided to stay in Colombia to ride out covid19. 15 months later I am still here.
Colombia offers so many varied experiences, from tropical glaciers to tropical beaches. Ancient civilizations to modern cities. Tropical Jungles and remote deserts, and so much more.
And lets not forget coffee. Colombian coffee is world re-known.
This is not my first visit to South America or Colombia. I have been visiting these parts since 2013. And have visited many of the popular tourist spots through out South America, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Ollantaytambo ruins (which I thought were more impressive than Macchi Picchu), lake Titicaca, La Paz, Capital city of Bolivia and the worlds highest city. Christ the Redeemer, Copacabana beach, in Brazil, Buenos Aries, Iguazu falls from both the Argentine and Brazilian sides, and many other places.
Chile is my preferred entry and exit point to South America, as it usually a direct flight from Australia. Other times I have used the American cities of Miami and Los Angeles.
Purpose of this Site
I first came to Colombia in 2016, and have been coming back every year since then. The reasons are many as you will see throughout these pages, friendly people, diverse cultures, wilderness treks to lost cities, tropical beaches, colored rivers, amazing birds and wildlife, glaciers, the remains of ancient civilizations and so much more.
Coffee, lets not forget coffee!.
Unlike other South American countries travelling within Colombia can be hard to organize. Often the usual way to book a tour, is to check the flyers in your hotel lobby or ask the desk clerk. There are also street hustlers trying to fill seats on a bus.
My first tour was to Santa Marta then to Tayrona National Park. I was the only English speaker in a bus of Colombians. Although the experience was good ( I did know some Spanish), English speakers will find that throughout Colombia, not many of them speak English.
I have made this site to give you other options.
If you decide to take advantage of them I’m sure your experience will be an awesome one.
