Welcome to Colombia, the second most biodiverse country on the planet. The country is known for the breadth of its incredible landscapes as well as the kindness and generosity of its people. Spanning from the Atlantic (Caribbean) to the Pacific Ocean, the country contains three Andean mountain ranges, two deserts, part of the Amazon River Basin, a plains region, and, of course, the best coffee growing regions in the world!
Discover the delicacies and culture of the Andes as you interact with everyday Colombians who live in some of the most important parts of the country, and gain exclusive access to some of the finest coffee in Colombia. From the sprawling metropolis of the City of Eternal Spring, Medellín, to tiny pueblos and the rural heartbeat of the Colombian countryside, to the crystal waters of the Caribbean, you’ll experience the best of this country, which features nearly perfect weather year-round.
Meet Colombian families (who usually greet with a light hug and kiss on the cheek) and have a chance to dance salsa, a thrilling dance that flows through the pulse of every citizen. Colombians are known in the Andes regions for their modern and hip fashion sense and their sense of humor. Tipping is not generally expected except at restaurants (they’ll ask for it to be included – 10%). On the coast, dress comfortably, it’s hot!
Colombian food is generally hearty and heavy, but many restaurants in the large cities are leading culinary movements to modernize traditional flavors. And while coffee is traditionally served with sugar, new modern cafés are serving the most intricate and strictly prepared cups in the world, scored by Q-Graders and brewed by trained baristas.
We want you to experience the true and authentic Colombia, full of thrills and surprises that generate memories you’ll recall for the rest of your life.
