In Colombia, you can travel through the coffee plantations in Salento, dance salsa in Cali, learn Spanish in Boota, get some sun at Cartagena, watch the famous sunsets of Taganga, or visit Medellin where you learn about the rich history of this country or just party all night long.
While you’re in Colombia you might consider hopping to San Andres Islands or the more isolated Rosario Islands. In these islands, you can enjoy the clear turquoise waters and beaches.
Don’t worry so much about safety and the bad reputation this country got after years of wars. Today Colombia is much safer than some of its neighbors (like Brazil) and is also a great destination for solo female travelers. Oh, and did I mention Colombian people are by far the nicest and most friendly people I’ve met in Latin America.
