Travel to Colombia offers a kaleidoscopic tour of Latin America. Bordered by the Pacific to the west and the Caribbean Sea
to the East, the coastline is sprinkled with ideal beaches whilst further inland, incredible landscapes unravel between the Andes Cordillera and the Amazon Forest. A colonial jewel, Cartagena
"the Andalusian" is a vision of beauty. This old city of pirates and smugglers has preserved colonial buildings, beautiful ramparts and the picturesque Bocagrande beach. All this promising tourist potential is unfortunately hampered by many reports of violence and crime, although in recent years the Colombian government has worked extremely hard to improve safety for locals as well as tourists.
