A country transforming

If there were ever a country that suffered from a case of seriously bad press, it's Colombia. It's not well known by travellers, so the border feels like crossing one of the last frontiers of travel. Colombia is ripe for discovery, and there is a little of everything: green valleys, golden beaches and snow-capped mountains, colonial fortresses and Bogota's frenetic energy... everything, it seems, except tourists. From intellectual Medellin to Cali's salsa clubs (birthplace of both cumbia and Gabriel Garcia Marquez) Colombia is musical and literary in equal measures. Welcoming and intelligent, the spicy, fun-loving Colombians too may surprise you. And while it is true that travel in Colombia demands some extra awareness, care, and preparation, the extra energy is rewarded a hundredfold.
