Find soul in this South American country rich in musical beats, stunning landscapes and reinvented cities. In Colombia, you can learn to dance the salsa, hike among the world’s tallest palm trees, swim in the Caribbean Sea and climb hundreds of steps up the Guatape monolith all in the same trip. We enjoyed Colombia’s big cities like Cartagena and Medellin, but also became enchanted in small towns like Jardin and Salento, where time seemed to stand still and where watching the sunset in the mountains became all that mattered.
