Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Colombia, South America your home away from home

The South American country of Colombia attracts many visitors to its Caribbean beaches, cultural cities, the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta Mountains, mighty rivers and jungle rainforests. The official language is Spanish and the currency is the Peso.

Things to Do in Colombia

Colombia offers unspoilt mountains, gorgeous coastline and virgin jungle along with archaeological sites and a vibrant culture, all just waiting to be explored by those looking for a holiday off-the-beaten-path. Hiking, kayaking or boating are the best ways to explore mountains, lakes and parts of the Amazon Basin from your Colombia holiday rental. Discover lost cities, pre-Colombian sculpture and colonial houses around this amazing country. In Bogotá, enjoy sightseeing with a local guide or take the cable car to the top of the mountain for stunning city views. If you visit at carnival time, enjoy the costumes, dancing and music which are part of the Latino culture. Those looking for a sunny beach for sunbathing, swimming and other watersports will enjoy Colombia’s Caribbean coastline and clear azure seas. Tayrona National Park has deep bays shaded by palms and several coral reefs for snorkeling and diving.

Places to Visit in Colombia

Bogotá, Colombia’s capital city is high in the mountains and has a host of attractions to explore from your Colombia holiday apartment in the city. Historic landmarks include the Capitol building and the Capilla del Sangrario Cathedral on the main Plaza Bolivar. The Gold Museum has an astonishing and valuable collection of pre-Columbian treasures made of gold. Art lovers will enjoy the sculptures and paintings of the Colombian artist Fernando Botero at the Museo Botero. Zipaquira has a world-famous Salt Cathedral carved in a salt mine within the mountain. Crosses and chapels are strangely interspersed with stalactites which are millions of years old. Cartagena is one of Colombia’s most lovely walled cities, lined with balconied architecture and alive with colonial history. Even older history can be seen at the tombs and pre-Colombian statues of San Agustin, the largest group of religious monuments and megathliths in South America. The Lost City or Ciudad Perdida can also be trekked to, high in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta Mountains.

Weather in Colombia

Colombia’s Caribbean coast has a tropical climate, with a cooler temperate climate in the mountains. The lower altitudes have hot humid weather throughout the year with temperatures ranging from 23-26°C (75-80°F). In the more temperate zones it is 18-23°C (65-75°F) and even cooler in the Andean peaks. Most rains fall from March to May and September through November, with dry winters.

Travel to Colombia

Colombia is a huge country and has several major international airports, depending upon where your Colombia holiday rental is located. The El Dorado International (BOG) Airport is 12km (8 miles) east of the capital and buses and taxis are available to transport visitors into the city. Other main airports to consider are the Ernesto Cortissoz (BAQ) Airport at Barranquilla; the Alfonso Bonilla Aragon (CLO) Airport at Cali and the Rafael Nunez (CTG) Airport at Cartagena.

4 of 5
apartamento muy cómodo, excelente ubicación que permite ir caminando a la ciudad amurallada y recorrer caminando toda la zona comercial de boca Grande. Es una zona muy segura y agradable, con mucha oferta para desayunar, almorzar o cenar. El apartamento es tal cual se muestra en el aviso y la atención que recibimos en la administración fue excelente. Totalmente recomendable.

Wow! Unbelievable

5 of 5
What an amazing place! The views, location, standard of finishes, standard of appliances, no corners cut anywhere! And the jacuzzi! Big plus! Marc who checked us in was an amazing guy! Very helpful, sorted any issues, arranged maids for us and his local knowledge came in very handy! He knew we were there to party and told us to enjoy ourselves! As we did! We went in may & it was roasting, don't take any notice of Iphone weather app it couldn't of been further off the mark as it said storms all week! Had a bit of rain on one morning and that was it! The beach is ok and a few decent spots in walking distance to eat! But with a penthouse This good and a host like Marc you didn't really need to leave to much! Thanks to the owner, and big thanks to Marc and his wife! Going to take a few weeks/months to get over these holiday blues 😂😂
