    Colombia, the new tourist destination

    Colombia is frequently cited as one of the world’s most beautiful travel destinations:

    That said, the development of tourism in Colombia is relatively recent, as the country is struggling to emerge from almost a century of armed conflict. The fragile peace accords of 2016 opened the door to a pacification of the country, and tourism has played, is playing and will play a special role in this process.

    That’s why we’ve created this Colombia travel blog, and why you can join us in this wonderful project! With this travel blog, we want to change the country’s image and encourage tourism initiatives that contribute to building lasting peace.

    In our travels, we try to meet Colombians who want to change the way tourism is done, or at least people who propose a minimum of thoughtful tourism, which is sometimes lacking in Colombian tourism projects. Thoughtful so as to be sustainable, culturally sustainable for local communities, ecologically sustainable for natural areas.
