The cities of Colombia are an eclectic mixture. Cartagena on the Caribbean coast is a gem. This walled city will take you back in time and the brightly coloured houses and murals add to the bohemian feel. Medellin, which was the most dangerous city in the world just 30 years ago due to the drugs cartels, is now a city of innovation. Its parks, transport system and cable cars, set amid two Andean mountain ranges, is complete with lush valleys and coffee growing regions. This home of salsa will keep you occupied for days! The capital of Bogota also has its charms. This huge city with traffic jams and dreary weather, as some may say, is culturally unique. La Candelaria and its colourful streets have a bohemian vibe in the city. This is after all the historical centre and a trip to the gold museum amid the mix of great bars and restaurants will keep most travellers happy.
