La Macarena, Colombia

Why visit Colombia in South America?

Colombia is closer than you think! Flights from Miami to Bogota or Cartagena are typically shorter than 3 hours. The country’s unique regions, welcoming culture, and natural beauty make for a distinctly memorable experience, especially when considering the very temperate and enjoyable year-round temperatures!

Colombia is well situated for travel to nearby destinations like Ecuador and Peru. With so many national and international airports, it’s easy to get around between different cities and regions within Colombia, not to mention other locations in South America and the Caribbean.

When is the best time to visit Colombia?

If you’re not sure when to travel to Colombia, the answer is pretty much any time you want!

The climate and temperatures here are very consistent throughout the year, thanks to the country’s proximity to the equator. Though there are some seasons and some regions that see a bit more rain than others, you’ll be sure to encounter lush settings and remarkable scenery pretty much everywhere you go!

Plus, with Colombia’s many festivities that take place at different times throughout the year, chances are your travels may overlap with an exciting festival or celebration worth exploring.

What makes Colombia stand out from the rest of Latin American countries?

Colombia is the only country in South America with coastline abutting the Atlantic (Caribbean) and Pacific Oceans. As the second most biologically diverse nation in the world, it boasts the greatest number of species in proportion to land area in the world! It’s no wonder the number of bird species (more than 1,920) in Colombia outnumbers those of the U.S. and Europe combined.

Apart from these nature-related aspects, Colombia is a nation of much cultural diversity. Each region has its own history and traditions and has made its own important contributions to the development of this nation. Apart from being one of the top three exporters of coffee and fresh-cut flowers in the world, it enjoys a reputation for supplying the very best of each of these products. Additionally, the nation is host to the second-highest concentration of Spanish speakers in the world.


The capital city of Bogota is a fantastic city and home to many of the nation’s best restaurants, museums, cafés, theaters, and universities. It is therefore no surprise that it hosts many national and international fairs, like the Feria Internacional del Libro de Bogotá (International Book Fair) and the Festival Iberoamericano de Teatro de Bogotá (Ibero-American Theater Festival).   

A trip to Colombia without visiting Bogota may very well feel incomplete. Such is the relevance and importance of this great city. Its airport is the most connected and centralized; in other words, it’s very easy to take a short domestic flight to any other part of Colombia. It makes sense to include it within your Colombia itinerary. If you appreciate art, culture, history, and cuisine, you’ll love Bogota.

Is it safe to travel to COLOMBIA?

When traveling to Colombia, you want to make good and informed choices regarding your well-being and safety, just as you would when traveling to any other country.

Colombia is a nation that believes in giving residents and visitors a greater sense of security. As a result, you may see guards posted around metropolitan centers, in different public areas, and at the entrances to various attractions and parks. This is very common.   

When it comes to the integrity of your travel experience, Metropolitan Touring makes every effort to vet our partnering hotels and providers to guarantee quality and consistency in each of the services and experiences we offer. This way, our travelers can enjoy greater peace of mind throughout their travels.

"Our custom trip to Quito, the Galapagos and Mashpi Lodge was incredible, one of the best we've ever taken as a family. It took a lot of planning and we tend to be particular but Diego made adjustment after adjustment until we were happy."

Plaza Bolivar Col


Condé Nast Traveler ONLINE

This small, secret rooftop of the restored Casa Gangotena mansion peers over Plaza San Francisco in the center of Quito’s colonial Old Town, the world’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. Order a Cedrón Spritz, a refreshing mix of rum, lemon, sparkling wine, and fresh lemon verbena (cedrón) syrup and leaf, then revel in the mesmerizing, real-time montage of daily life in Ecuador’s capital as it parades past.

National Geographic Traveller

A Font of information, Klaus has spent decades in the field, leading tours in the Amazon, Andes and Galapagos Islands. He hung up his guiding boots a few years back and now creates itineraries for the tour operator, Metropolitan Touring. Adrift in the Pacific Ocean, hundreds of miles from mainland South America, Galapagos is one of the most biodiverse locales on Earth.

Cruise Critic

Santa Cruz II is a replacement for the much-loved Santa Cruz, which plied the waters of the Galapagos for 36 years. It is not a new ship; it was built in 2002 and sailed as Mare Australis under the Australis cruise brand, operating expedition cruises around Cape Horn and to Antarctica. Metropolitan Touring bought the ship in 2015 and completely refurbished it, launching it as Santa Cruz II in October 2015.

When this modern, minimalist, glass-walled jungle lodge opened in 2012, it changed the accommodation game in South America. Arquitect Alfredo Ribadeneira’s “protective cocoon” would impress in a modern city; in the depths of an Andean cloudforest, it is wild, audacious and beautiful. Though only 70 miles from Quito, Maspi Lodge sits in splendid isolation, perched on a cliff at the end of an unsealed road.
