Magical places in Colombia

Hey there! My name is Craig Williams. I am an English Teacher Volunteer with the Ministry of Education. I am based here in Barranquilla. Barranquilla is the capital city of the department of Atlántico. It’s the 4th biggest city behind Bogotá, Medellín, and Cali. The average temperature here is 25°C-35°C.

I wrote this blog post to share some insights about my time here in Colombia. To be more specific I’m going to recommend a few interesting places I think you'd like to visit it you have the time. Colombia is a very diverse country and with that being said there a lot to do and see. There’s a little bit of everything to do here.


San Gil, Santander.  Is a town municipality in the Department of Santander in north-eastern Colombia, located roughly 300 km (192 mi) from Bogotá and 95 km from the department's capital, Bucaramanga. There is a lot to do here.  The location of this small town makes it an attractive place to get your adrenaline rush. There's a lot of extreme sports that you can do here. There’s rafting, bungee, jumping, paragliding, zip, lining and so much more. 


Parque Tayrona, Santa Marta.  Tayrona National Park is a protected site that covers the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain in Santa Marta. It’s known for it's coastal lagoons, and coves. When at Parque Tayrona you can go hiking, check out the indigenous settlements there to be informed about the culture and history of the lost city.


Guatape, Medellín Colombia.  This is a small coastal town in Eastern Antioquia. It’s roughly about 2 hours from Medellín. This is a must visit on your travel itinerary around Colombia. The view from the huge rock ‘El Peñól’ is simply breathtaking and magical. This huge rock takes 740 steps to get to the top of it. But it’s really worth it.


Tolú, Sucre.  This is a small municipality located in the department of Sucre. It’s on the North coast of Colombia. Tolú is known for it's beaches and shallow waters. This town is just hours away from the capital city Sincelejo. And it’s also hours away from Cartagena a famous coastal city.


    • I hope you find the beauty that lies within this country and that you will be motivated to want to explore it’s depths.
