Must-see highlights and tips for backpacking in Colombia

The word is slowly getting out about Colombia. While many still mistakenly associate the country with only crime and violence, Colombia’s problems have long been on the wane and today it is ready to receive visitors once again. As its tourism board says, “the only risk is wanting to stay”.

It’s amazing how many sights and points of interest there are around the country, previously inaccessible or in ill-advised areas but now ready to be explored. Colombia’s geography is so diverse that it’s like a portrait of South America in miniature, offering tons of variety in an area that’s about twice the size of France.

On top of that, Colombia has a wonderfully vibrant culture and its people are at times heart-achingly welcoming. I’ve gone backpacking in over 55 countries and Colombia is, hands down, one of my personal favorites.

Why you should go

  1. Huge variety in climate and topography. Colombia has it all: a Caribbean and a Pacific coast, lush forests, dry deserts, the start of the Andes range and a big slice of the Amazon. It’s almost like a compressed version of South America as a whole, with a different environment only ever a bus ride away.
  2. Huge biodiversity. Colombia has some of the highest biodiversity on the planet and is home to countless species of birds, fish, mammals, etc. making it a wonderful destination for trekking and scuba diving.
  3. Brimming with culture. Colombia has a strong cultural identity and its cities (notably Medellin and Bogota) are among the most booming and cosmopolitan in South America. You’ll be fascinated to learn about its often dark history though equally intrigued by Colombian life today.
  4. Great for budget travel. Colombia is not the cheapest country in Latin America but not the priciest either. Bus travel is affordable and comfortable, and low budget domestic flights are available via carriers such as Viva Colombia. There is an emerging backpacking circuit, with hostels and other low-cost accommodation in ample supply.

Orientation

Nearly one third of Colombia is covered by the Amazon rainforest and not easily accessible. When looking at a map of Colombia, you’ll find that most places to see are in the west and north. I’ve highlighted some of the top places to visit in the map below.

If you’re flying to Colombia directly, you’ll find an increasing number of direct flights to Bogota from many points around the world. Colombian carrier Avianca connects with Madrid, Boston, Fort Lauderdale, London, and many others.

If you’re on a regional trip, keep in mind that it is not possible to enter Colombia from Panama overland. Well, you theoretically could if you were extremely reckless, but generally speaking this is a no-go area filled with smugglers and jaguars. If you want to travel between these countries without flying, I strongly recommend sailing from Panama to Cartagena or vice versa as this is a phenomenal experience that is far superior to flying.

In the north of Colombia you’ll find the colonial old city of Cartagena, as well as Santa Marta which is not so notable in itself but makes for a great base for exploring Tayrona National Park (home to beautiful white sand beaches and jungle) as well as a good point from which to make the Lost City trek. The town of Taganga, a short ride from Santa Marta, is Colombia’s main destination for scuba diving and is a bit of a backpacker party hub.

In the middle is San Gil, which is Colombia’s adventure sports capital (including paragliding, wild water rafting, caving, etc.). Here you’ll also find Medellin, which is a fascinating city that should not be skipped.

In the south you’ll find the capital Bogota, the popular coffee region, the city of Cali (famous for its obsession with salsa), and Tatacoa, a desert in which where years of erosion have created some unusual landscapes.

The amazon at the heart of Colombia is super remote and is even home to some uncontacted indigenous tribes. It’s also where FARC rebels are reportedly still present, so these are not exactly areas suitable for tourists. If you want to go into the Amazon, flying to Leticia is essentially the only mainstream option. Leticia has border connections with Peru and Brazil.

Places to see in Colombia

These are a few of the best places to visit and top things to do in Colombia. They’re roughly in a north to south order.

Colonial City of Cartagena

Bright colours in the colonial old town of Cartagena

Its modern parts reminded me a bit of Miami, but Cartagena also has one of the prettiest colonial town centres in South America. Picture lots of quaint houses with flowers hanging from balconies and leafy squares where people play chess and street vendors sell grapes and bananas. The walls and fortresses that ring the town are also worth a wander.

Budget travellers should know that photogenic Cartagena is basically the tourism crown jewel of Colombia and so prices are significantly higher than elsewhere. There is a small backpacker district around Calle 34 just outside the old town with good budget options.

Playa Blanca is a beautiful beach about an hour’s drive outside the city; it’s much better than any of the city beaches so it’s worth the drive!

Float in Totumo Volcano mud baths

Okay, I won’t pretend this isn’t a silly tourist trap, but it’s too much fun not to mention. A day trip from Cartagena, this mud volcano lets you swim inside it. The viscosity of the mud makes you float on top of the surface, like you’re swimming in the Dead Sea. Sometimes you keel over and have to paddle like a dog to find your centre of gravity again.

Look, whatever… just go do it. It’s hilarious.

Trek to the Lost City

This is one of the best hikes in South America. It takes 4 to 6 days departing from Santa Marta. The trek runs through lands owned by the indigenous Kogi up to an ancient pre-Colombian city atop a mountain.

The ruins may not exactly be Machu Picchu, but they are not truly the point of this hike. The destination is just an excuse for the journey, which meanders past clear river streams and lush green jungles.

You sleep in hammocks or bunks in primitive lodges — they’re just some roofs without walls, really, so you’re effectively sleeping out in the open save for your mosquito net. At night you fall asleep to an orchestra of crickets, frogs, and monkeys.

Explore Tayrona Park

Tayrona has some of the better beaches in the country (Image: Wikimedia Commons)

Is a 5 day hike a little too long for your itinerary? Then you’ll find some shorter walks in Tayrona Park, in the northeast corner of Colombia.

While I didn’t do the 3 hour hike through the jungle to the ruins of Pueblito, it’s been tipped as a cheaper and shorter alternative for those with limited time.

Tayrona Park itself has several beautiful secluded beaches and a chance to see a lot of wildlife. You can camp overnight inside the national park in Cabo San Juan and sleep in a hammock or tent.

Some budget travellers do complain about the somewhat inflated prices for food and accommodation inside the park, though realistically you can overnight in Tayrona for as little as $20. It’s best to book your hammock or tent in advance though as spaces are limited.

San Gil: the hub for adventure sports

San Gil in the Santander region is Colombia’s capital of adventure sports. Go there for rafting (up to class 5 rapids, i.e. there’s some crazy rafting here), paragliding (starting at $30), mountain biking, and more.

I had a great time paragliding in San Gil, though the town itself is worth having a look as well, with some nice botanical gardens and vendors selling plates of fried giant-bottomed ants (they’re crispy and salty like popcorn – it’s a local delicacy).

Visit the town of Barichara

The cute colonial town of Barichara

Barichara is a town in northern Colombia known for its cobbled streets and colonial architecture. It makes for a nice day trip from San Gil.

You’ll find some old churches and cemeteries, a few small museums, and a historical walking trail that takes about 2 hours and connects the picturesque towns of Barichara and Guane.

Discover cultural Medellin

Plaza Botero

Many big cities in Latin America can be a let-down as they tend to be chaotic and overwhelming. Medellin on the other hand has a real cultural heart that’s easy to love. It may look grungy at first glance, but given another look you’ll find a fascinating city to explore.

Its urban renewal over the past few years has been earning Medellin many international innovation awards, with squares that were once the sites of cartel battles now becoming thriving public spaces that double as open-air mini museums featuring sculptures by Fernando Botero.

Medellin has connected some of its poorer neighborhoods on the hills to the city with cable cars.

Places I recommend checking out in Medellin: Plaza Botero, Minorista market, Parque Lleras at night (a fun bar area with people spilling into the streets), ride the metrocable up to Parque Arvi, go to the Joaquin Antonio Uribe Botanical Garden, and visit the Medellín Museum of Modern Art. I can also highly recommend going on a tropical fruit tasting tour.

Many travellers stay in the Poblado area of Medellin, which is a middle-class residential neighborhood with a good reputation for safety, and it is within walking distance of the Parque Lleras nightlife as well. Laureles (and the adjacent Libertadores) has more of a local vibe and has a high concentration of hostels and guesthouses as well. I enjoyed staying in both these neighborhoods.

If you want to learn more about Medellin’s past, go on the Real City tour (that’s the name of the company): it’s one of the best city tours I’ve done anywhere. It tells you in very emotionally engaging ways about the history of the city and Colombia. After this tour you’re guaranteed to feel a new emotional connection not only with the city but with Colombia in general.

Climb the big rock of Guatape

The town of Guatape

The rock of Peñol

A great day trip from Medellin (perhaps even warranting an overnight stay) is the historical town of Guatape, famed for its colourful houses with beautifully sculpted depictions of village life adorning the lower halves of every house. There are some arts and craft shops, and some historical colonial era churches.

But the main highlight is the rock of Piedra del Peñol. This unusual rock formation was once worshipped by the indigenous tribes and given the imposing look of this monolith it’s easy to see why. You can climb stairs to the top from where you have a great view of the surrounding lakes.

Guatape is a bit of a resort town for Colombians, so in addition you’ll find a range of tourist activities (such as boat tours around the lakes) and extreme sports (including hang gliding).

City tours & museums in Bogota

The capital of Bogota has a lot of things to see and do, but I’d recommend doing several things in particular. First, go on a Bogota bicycle tour. You’ll be able to cover a lot of ground and gain a greater understanding of the city.

You’ll see things you normally wouldn’t see: for instance, why are all these shady-looking men loitering outside this one particular building? Turns out they are grey-market emerald dealers trying to off-load their gemstones to the highest bidder. You’ll see some of the city’s most amazing street art as well, and get to sample unusual tropical fruits at the local market that you can’t find anywhere in the west.

This man in Bogota was running guinea pig runs. You can bet on them like horses…

Bogota also has a large number of museums. Don’t miss the Botero Museum and the National Museum, and especially the Museo de Oro (Gold Museum) which has a stunning collection of pre-Columbian gold artifacts.

Finally, it’s worth taking the cable car to Monserrate Mountain, from where you get a superb view of the city below.

Museo de Oro

Coffee farms in Salento

The small town of Salento in Colombia’s coffee region is a great spot to stay for a few days. Tours of some of the local organic coffee farms can educate you about the coffee growing and roasting process, though there is much more to see and do in Salento. After spending time in the cities, you may just wish to wind down for a while in this slow-paced rural place.

Make sure you hike to the Cocora Valley, home to some gasp-inducingly tall wax palm trees.

Growing up to 70 meters, they’re claimed by some to be some of the tallest in the world. The typical hike starts along a mountain stream, crosses over some old swing bridges, passes through some cloud forests (don’t miss the hummingbird sanctuary), before finally reaching the valley with the imposing palm trees.

The bizarrely tall palm trees of Salento (horse for scale)

The area is also a popular place to go trekking or horseback riding. A fun thing you can do in town during the evening is to play Tejo, a traditional Colombian game that involves throwing metal balls at a target lined with gunpowder. It’s good explosive fun!

The goal of Tejo is to hit a target stuck inside the clay

Stargaze in Tatacoa desert

The Tatacoa Desert, not far from the southern city of Neiva, is one of the hottest places in Colombia. It’s remote and has only a few places to stay (and no internet), which makes it all the more worth it. You’ll find yourself in the middle of an arid expanse, home of vultures and eagles, with the start of the Andes mountain range off in the distance.

A labyrinth of rocky canyons formed by years of erosion is the main attraction here — it’s a surreal little place that’s fun to get lost in.

Due to the low light pollution it’s also a perfect spot for stargazing, either by yourself perhaps while sitting around a campfire, or at the local observatory. The resident astronomer gives presentations every night, which were unfortunately hard for me to follow with my limited Spanish. But he did say “Goopitar” a lot (I think that was Jupiter), and he probably said some things about the expansion of the universe. Either way, I got to see the rings of Saturn through a telescope, which was totally amazing.

 

Suggested hostels in Colombia

Colombia has a growing network of backpacker hostels, and unless you go well off the beaten track you’ll surely be able to find hostel-style accommodation. Below are a few recommended ones.

browse colombia hostels »
El Pit Hostel Bogotá The top-rated hostel in the capital. Quiet (social but not party) and in a safe neighborhood.
Casa Bellavista Bogotá Has two locations in the popular La Candelaria barrio. I stayed in the second house which I think is the best of the two.
Black Sheep Hostel Medellin Friendly, homely hostel in popular Poblado area. Has on-site Spanish school & relaxed atmosphere.
Casa Kiwi Medellin Also in Poblado. Features a pool, hammocks, and bar. More party oriented than Black Sheep.
El Viajero Cartagena Cozy hostel with narrow central courtyard making it super easy to meet people. Dorms and private rooms.
Drop Bear Hostel Santa Marta Fun hostel with a unique twist: its building used to be a cartel headquarters! I wrote about this hostel here.
La Serrana Salento Great hostel with bonfires at night & restaurant sources its ingredients from the on-site vegetable gardens.

Suggested budget hotels

Hotels in Colombia aren’t quite so dirt cheap as in Bolivia or Ecuador, but you can easily find a decent room for about $30 a night. Below are a few picks that have an authentic character and good vibe.

search colombia hotels »
Sweet Dreams Candelaria Magica Bogotá Guesthouse with vintage decoration, garden with BBQ, $30/night.
Pitstop Guest House Medellin In Poblado area, with outdoor pool and fitness center. Double rooms start at $20.
Hotel La Magdalena Cartagena Local hotel inside the Old Town, and a 10 minutes walk from the beach.
Posada Casa Salento Salento A traditional posada with rooms starting at $30/night.

 

Is Colombia safe?

I know that a lot of people are concerned about safety in Colombia, though the situation today is much better than it once was.

Old guide books from at least a decade ago may still warn of kidnapping risk or drug gang violence but modern editions are free of such warnings. The safety risks in Colombia are, broadly speaking, the same as anywhere else in Central or South America. Apply common sense, such as taking taxis at night and not wandering idly into sketchy neighborhoods on the outskirts of Bogota or in Medellin’s hillside barrios.

Statistically, Colombia is way safer than it was in the 90ies, though the city of Cali in particular remains in the worldwide top 30 for most murders per capita. This relates to the criminal underworld and may not affect tourists at all, but it probably still speaks to the overall safety level and so you might want to be extra careful in Cali.

Still, Colombia has mellowed out a lot. You won’t be facing Pablo Escobar (he’s long dead now), though of course petty crime targeting tourists is a reality as anywhere. Consult further info if you’re going into remote jungle areas far off the tourist trail.

I can say that I felt very much at ease in Colombia and so did every traveller I met. It’s still rough around the edges, but the security situation seemed better to me than in Honduras, Guatemala, Brazil and even South Africa, subjective as such impressions may ultimately be.

It’s always a good idea to get travel insurance, in case of theft or emergency.

Are you insured?

Get travel insurance and you’ll be covered for medical expenses, theft, personal liability, cancellation, and more. I recommend World Nomads, which offer flexible insurance for independent travellers with 24-hour worldwide assistance. (Here’s why you should get travel insurance.)

If you are in Colombia end of February / early March be sure to go to the carnival in Barranquila. It’s the second biggest in the world after Rio.

Cost of travel in Colombia

Colombia is not an ultimate cheapie like some other Latin American countries (e.g. Guatemala, Nicaragua, Peru or Bolivia). However, it’s also not as expensive as some others (e.g. Costa Rica or Brazil). As a ballpark budget around $40 a day, depending on your personal travel style. Of course, spend more on things like entertainment or better accommodation and that could rise to $50 or more.

A hostel dorm bed will typically set you back $10 – $15. The higher end of that range is mostly found in Cartagena as it’s the prime tourist spot. Food can be very cheap if you eat in local eateries – a daily set meal typically with soup, meat and rice, and fried plantains will usually sell for as little as $3-5. Food in urban centres or a la carte meals are closer to $5-10. A domestic beer costs about a dollar.

‘Exito’ supermarkets are easy to find in cities, and hostels usually have kitchen facilities available.

Language barrier

English is not widely spoken in Colombia so some knowledge of Spanish will be very helpful. If travelling for a while, it might make sense to learn Spanish if you don’t speak any. There are many Spanish language schools around the country; Medellin in particular is a popular place to take lessons.

    • Marek Reply July 25, 2017 at 2:11 pm

      Hi mother 🙂 It’s an understandable concern as Colombia used to be in the news a lot for these things!

      What I can say is that kidnapping cases peaked in 2000 and dropped by 95%+ since. Drug trade still exists but (unlike the 90ies) it’s gone underground and is invisible to a tourist.

      To be safe, tell your daughter to stick to known travel destinations listed in travel guides and to only take official licensed taxis in the cities. The places where travellers normally go are quite safe nowadays.

    Hi Marek

    Great Blog! I am heading to Columbia in about 7 weeks with my sister and we were wanting some advice on travel plans and the best way of travelling across the country/whether we need to book flights far in advance and what airlines to use.

    • Marek Reply March 31, 2017 at 9:57 am

      For domestic flights you should be OK booking just a few days in advance, if you want your plans to stay flexible. Viva Colombia is a popular domestic airline. Avianca and LAN are also worth checking out.

    I am interested in travelling around Peru and Colombia for 5 weeks. What is your suggested amount of time in Colombia and suggested travel route?

    • Marek Reply December 7, 2016 at 6:06 pm

      You’ll probably want to have a flight from Bogota to Lima in your plans somewhere, so in that case I’d suggest going around Colombia for about 14 – 20 days, then heading to Lima (as you can do the typical southern Peru circuit including Machu Picchu in about 2 weeks, give or take). Places like Cartagena, Medellin, and the coffee region are popular in Colombia. Best route depends 100% on your specific interests really!

  7. Esteban Reply October 31, 2016 at 4:36 pm

    Surely missing San Félix, located in Salamina, Caldas. There you can spot a lot more wax palm trees than in Cocora Valley. Also, the town (Salamina urban area) is gorgeous.

  8. Henry Reply August 28, 2016 at 10:03 pm

    Nice article! Hey, when you were in Colombia, did you have to book Hostels in advance, or did you just show up and ask for a bed?

    • Marek Reply August 30, 2016 at 12:25 pm

      In most places you can just show up, though I did find it useful to book ahead (only a day or two in advance) in order to ensure a spot in a high-rated hostel rather than just any bed. 🙂

  9. Sharan Sohal Reply August 7, 2016 at 4:58 am

    Hi Marek.

    How long did you stay in Colombia all together? and how much time did you spend at each place? 🙂

    • Marek Reply August 13, 2016 at 11:42 am

      I stayed there for over a month. I’m not sure how useful it is for me to specify how long I stayed in places though, as I tend to be very flexible with my time. (For instance, I stayed 10 days in Medellin, while most people would spend much fewer days there.) You can make a Colombia trip as short or as long as you want. 🙂

  10. jeff Reply July 28, 2016 at 7:16 pm

    Nice summary, Ballpark figure of 40$ A day is too low. You’ll be hard pressed to find places to stay at 40$ a night in Colombia, especially in the cities. Cartagena old town is expensive and although you can maybe stay and eat that cheap in the cities, those areas are not recommended for tourists. Bogota for example has six districts ranging from the most unprivileged in the South to the G district in the North which is basically like walking in the upper westside.
    I suggest Hostel Breezas in Tayrona (which is a must visit).

    • Marek Reply August 3, 2016 at 12:47 pm

      I’m focusing mainly on backpacker style travel, so if you get a hostel bed for about $10 a night (or share a cheap room between 2 people) you still have plenty of budget left for food and sightseeing. Of course, I realise budget estimates are hugely dependent on travel style and locations, so you may have different experiences. 🙂

    • Marek Reply June 9, 2016 at 9:22 am

      Depends on how much time you have! You can stay a whole week and have plenty of stuff to do, maybe even longer. Why not play it by ear and stay or leave depending on how you feel?

  13. Rachel Reply January 28, 2016 at 5:47 am

    Hello! Love the blog. I am heading to South America in probably about 2 weeks. I was going to fly to Columbia then go down to Peru to Bolivia to Chile. I have never spoke spanish so i wanted to take a course in bolivia bc that is where you said it was the least expensive. But I am also wanting to start off in columbia for the cost savings on a plane tickets.
    so first question
    1. do you think i could find an inexpensive spanish course for 5 or so days in columbia
    2. do you think columbia is an easy place to meet other travelers? or is peru a better place to start off your south american travels?

    What do you think?

    • Marek Reply January 29, 2016 at 11:44 am

      Hey Rachel. I already sent you my reply via email, but just to repeat it here for others to see: I think if it makes sense for you to start in Colombia, you should simply start there. A week of Spanish lessons in Colombia should cost about $150-$200 (if I recall correctly) which may be more expensive than Bolivia, though for one week it wouldn’t be worth changing your travel plans for. If you start in places like Cartagena, Medellin or Bogota and stay in backpacker hostels it’s very easy to meet people. Both Peru and Colombia are great starting points, so I don’t think you can make a wrong choice here. Good luck!

    • Avalon Reply February 8, 2016 at 6:17 pm

      Hey Rachel,

      Yeah there are bunches of cheap courses throughout the country, especially right now that the dollar is strong. I believe most will be in Cartagena, Bogota, and Medellin.

      I am studying at Colombia Immersion Spanish School in Medellin right now and highly recommend. 500.000COP per week and they have cheap lunches, tours, and events.

    Hi Mark, nice entry. We loved traveling in Colombia, the people were amazing and like you said there is so much diversity! We found it to be cheaper than Bolivia, our budget was $20.50 per day for 30 days, including rafting and paragliding. The avg hostel price was less than $6 per night for a dorm bed.

      That’s a great guide to travelling in Colombia on a budget. I think your daily spend is probably a bit lower than most people, so well done. 🙂 I’m surprised you managed to spend less than Bolivia… this should be a good example for others to follow.

  17. Mark Reply October 23, 2015 at 5:04 pm

    Hi Marek

    That’s a great article and very informative on Colombia. I think more emphasis should be put on Medellin. It is such an important city in Colombia with the countries first Metro system and it’s people are very proud of how far their city has come. Area’s like Laurleles are excellent area’s to hang out other than Poblado. Envigado is also a great suburb for Spanish Classes in Medellin. I highly recommend Colombia Immersion. They mix classes and an immersion environment where everyone lives and learns together.
