WHEN TO GO
You don’t have to travel far to experience two utterly different climates. Whenever you’re in the high altitude of the Andean peaks, the temperature will be completely different to the warm, lower levels of Colombia. The country is famous for its carnivals and cultural events, and many people travel to this part of the world to experience them. In August it’s all about music when the Festival de Música del Pacifico Álvarez comes to town.
Visit Tayrona National Park and discover a sprinkling of historical ruins. It’s also home to over 300 different species of bird.
