Trip review
Colombia

loved their trip to Colombia

Colombia was a great country and the people are mainly very friendly and smiling. Many locals only speak Spanish, but that is charming in itself nowadays, and the weather was generally cooler than I had anticipated until we reached Medellin and the Caribbean coast. We loved the Spanish colonial architecture in Vilaa de Leyva, Barichara and Guatape, the scenery in the coffee region / Cocora Valley, did not mind the long road journeys as the Andes scenery was spectacular, and the Punta Faro hotel on Mucura island was blissful.

Best parts:
Well organised trip around Colombia and thanks so much to Jeanne for orchestrating the tour - almost every pick-up and time was perfect, the guides mainly spoke good English and were enthusiastic / knowledgeable, and the hotels were perfect for our needs.
Worst parts:
one guide in Pereira who was poor at English, two missed pick-ups at Cartagena, and the annoyance that the direct flight with Avianca direct from Medellin to Cartagena was cancelled 10 days before we travelled, meaning the trip needed 2 flights via Bogota. Traffic chaos in Bogota was not good either.
