Think you know Colombia? Discover a dangerously addictive country that defies the stereotypes

The secret is out - travellers all over the world are waking up and smelling the sweet Colombian coffee and the bad-boy image has been replaced by that of an exotic, enchanting and welcoming country. Nowhere is this better embodied than in the colourful backstreets of Cartagena, where infectious salsa music escapes colonial era buildings and blends into the warm Caribbean breeze. Forget the demonised Colombia you knew, and think instead of pristine national parks, idyllic coastline, tropical jungle and a high altitude capital as rich and lively as the coffee beans grown nearby.
