    Colombia is an amazing place! I visited for the first time last summer with my fiance, whose family lives there. I was blown away by the ecological and topographical diversity of the country – which your pictures capture beautifully! Kudos!

    I spent 3 weeks in Columbia 3 years ago & loved it – Guatape is the most colourful little town that could at the Ciudad Perdida trek was something I’ll never forget. I don’t usually like to go back to countries but wow your photos, I’ve serious wanderlust to return!

    First of all your photos are incredible! I’m really jealous. Columbia is one of those countries I’ve never been to but I would love to visit. It looks amazing.

    Woah! I wish I read this post sooner! I’m headed to South America, but probably won’t be able to find time for Colombia. These photos are filling me with regret!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, thank you! We were there for 4 weeks and that wasn’t enough. I tell everyone to try and spend as long as possible but you can definitely do a nice taster trip in a couple of weeks. It’s just a huge country with so much to do!

    Columbia was never on my bucket list until now! Great pictures! How was it traveling around the country? How many days would you recommend visiting for?

      Ah I’m so glad. Travelling around the country was very easy. There’s a budget airline there that makes travelling between long distances super cheap (same price as a bus). For shorter distances, they use 12 seater vans that are comfortable. We spent 4 weeks there and didn’t think that was enough so I’d say that’s a minimum!

    Haha, I’m sure that’s exactly what my family would imagine if I went to Colombia too (referring to your photoshopped image). The country looks amazing though. So rich in culture and beautiful nature – and wildlife. I love all the tropical birds living in that part of the world 🙂

    Wow! Colombia looks so lush and green. The scenery looks amazing (nice photography!) and the towns are so colourful. I nearly wen to Colombia a few years ago but had to cancel at the last minute due to work commitments. I wish I had just gone on that trip anyway. Love the photos.

    Stunning captures there, and yes, going through it has actually inspired me to plan a trip to Columbia soon. Every picture is so beautiful captured, full points for the editing skills in the first pic ;). The wilderness, beaches and the vibrant colours, everything is so inspiring!

    Outstanding photos – what to say… I just could spend the whole time scrolling your beautiful photos.
    You somehow make it possible to give such a good impressions of these places. The one with the cow I somehow like the most 🙂
    What made me laughing hard was of course your introduction photo of the imagination about Colombia 😀
    Yes but that is what is so fascinating about travelling. It proves so many prejudices wrong.
