Colombia’s Caribbean Coast boasts a diversity of landscapes—crystal blue waters and gorgeous sandy beaches, to lush jungle and even desert areas. And with the colonial city of Cartagena attracting tourists, there are always a ton of activities along with vibrant local culture in which to immerse yourself.
This is definitely a place though for the adventurous outdoor lover. Visitors to the Caribbean Coast can undertake one of the most famous hikes on the planet—the trek to the Ciudad Perdida (Lost City) located somewhere deep inside of a remote mountain range. An experience not to be missed!
