There is life beyond Bogotá


Colombia is probably one of the least known countries in South America.  That is why we have decided to remove that label and immerse ourselves in a country with much to discover, beyond its better known cities such as Bogotá, Cali, Cartagena de Indias or Medellín.

Ready to be taken over by the other side of Colombia?

Bogotá, the perfect gateway

It is one of the highest cities in the world, located over 3,000 meters above sea level. Many of its visitors may suffer from the well-known “altitude sickness”, but there is almost nothing that a good Colombian coffee will not cure.


The historic quarter of the city, Candelaria, is made up of a combination of colonial buildings, colorful houses and Street Art. An authentic mix of history, culture and art that is worth visiting.

We cannot leave Bogotá without visiting the Gold Museum and the Botero Museum, a world-famous reference for contemporary art.

Barichara, the most beautiful town in Colombia

And it’s not just us saying it, as both Colombians and tourists concur. We couldn’t agree more with this statement!

Between mountains, forests and little jewels of colonial architecture, we find Barichara, where white houses with reddish roofs overlap and mingle in its cobbled streets and slopes.

It is a must-see that will fill you up with peace and tranquility.

Tayrona Park (paradise), we’re going to the beach!

We are going to discover one of the most beautiful beaches in Colombia on an impressive route to Cabo San Juan, in one of the most famous natural reserves. An accessible route for everyone where you will find out beaches that will surprise you. Surrounded by palm trees, you will discover the native fauna with a great biodiversity of birds and monkeys.

At last, we arrive at our destination, a relaxing bath in any of its paradisal beaches: Playa Cristal, Playa La Piscina or Playa del Cañaveral among others. But remember to buy your ticket and book in advance, since the high season extends across December and January.

Guatapé, a village full of color

If there is a small town full of light and color, that is Guatapé.

In 2016 it was recognized worldwide for being one of the most colorful towns on the globe and, although traditions have changed over the years, color continues to flood this village and, wherever you look, its houses are an explosion of stimuli for our retinas.


Blues, reds, yellows seem to shine more in Guatapé than anywhere else. The plinths of the houses have been decorated showing the trades of those who live or lived there and the ancestral traditions of the town.

Tatacoa desert

We go from green to the most arid colors to enter a desert where reds and ochres coexist with cacti and transport us to landscapes of the Far West.

Desierto Tatacoa

Our recommendation, a route through the Red Desert. Through its different viewpoints, we can see the inexorable work of erosion over the years. Anyone would say that we are in Colombia facing such a scenery.

Colombia has captivated us. Did you know how many incredible places were waiting for us?

If you are considering flying to Colombia, now it’s easier than ever because Air Europa takes you to Bogotá and Medellín.

Book your next flight now and let yourself be taken over by a country full of color!
