Reasons to make Colombia your summer destination
Ditch your usual resort routine for this South American paradise
Offering stunning views, welcoming hospitality, and vibrant culture, Colombia is one of the most remarkable places to visit. In 2017, Lonely Planet rated this South American location the second best country to vacation to in the world!
Check out these reasons to put Colombia at the top of your travel bucket list:
1. Right now Colombia is at the perfect point between touristy and remote. With the modern luxuries of easily accessible Wi-Fi and transport links but remaining true to the original culture and natural beauty, this may be the most crucial time to visit Colombia.
2. It is safer than you think. With a turbulent history, Colombia has had a longtime reputation of being dangerous and overrun by violence and drug abuse. However, through peace talks and the removal of "no-go" zones, tourists can travel through Colombia with ease.
3. The hospitality in Colombia will have you feeling right at home. The local people you will meet while visiting this South American country are sure to be some of the nicest and friendliest in the world. Lonely Planet's high ranking in 2017 came mostly from the extreme pride and happiness the Colombian people exude to the travelers they encounter.
So this summer, skip Cabo and head to Colombia.
