PROCOLOMBIA’S DESTINATIONS

Undoubtedly one of the country’s main cultural and natural gems, the Colombian Caribbean is home to numerous iconic destinations – including Cartagena, Barranquilla, Santa Marta and La Guajira – which conserve elements of colonial and indigenous architecture that combine seamlessly with beautiful beaches to create truly magical settings.

LA GUAJIRA, A CRADLE OF ANCESTRY
Birthplace of many of the big names of ‘vallenato’ music and a land of stunning ancestral riches. It’s the historic home of five indigenous communities, such as the Wayúu. Visit Alta Guajira, Cabo de la Vela, Punta Gallinas and El Cerrejón.

CARIBBEAN COLONIAL TREASURE
History, romance and culture converge in the heat, architecture, fine dining and impressive city walls. Within the largest colonial fortifications in South America lurk intriguing historic treasures that make the city a World Heritage site.

CHEERFUL BARRANQUILLA
The ‘Golden Port’ is sure to fill all visitors with its contagious ‘alegría’. Part of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Mankind, Colombia’s most important cultural celebration – the Barranquilla Carnival – is pure color and joy.

LAND OF SEA AND SNOW
Historic and cultural heritage combine with stunning beaches, natural reserves and the world’s tallest coastal mountain range – the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, home to indigenous communities such as the Kogui, Arhuaco, Kankuamo and Wiwa.

MOMPÓS
Making up part of the country’s network of patrimony towns – and declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO – Mompós is definitely one of Colombia’s most beautiful colonial destinations and home to important cultural and religious events.
