Have you ever felt tired of the same old buildings erecting from the ground up and all the way up to the sky? Are you sick of being in the same urban lifestyle you’ve always been in your whole life? Or maybe you want to add a little more adventure to your life is that it?
Well, if you happen to answer yes to any of these, then have I got the place just for you! Welcome to the Republic of Colombia in South America! Here, you will be able to get a much-needed break from the old city life, and be able to explore the wild jungles of one of the most biodiverse cities in the world! But which places should you go and visit first then? Well, here are just some of the best sights to see in Colombia just for you!
The first step that you should take when visiting Colombia is the village of San Agustin. This village is home to over 500 monoliths, statues, and carvings! It is a great segway into the outside world because of its great and simple infrastructures and historical background. Speaking of history, the monoliths and statues I mentioned were actually made around 100 A.D and 1200 A.D. These artifacts from a different time are here to remind us of the ancient civilizations that used to inhabit the land. Pretty great for a start huh?
Have you ever watched the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean? Well, if your answer is yes then chances are, you’ve seen Cartagena, or at least a recreated version of it in the movies. But if you want to experience what life was like back in those days, then there is an actual Cartagena located in Colombia. With colorful and colonial architecture, get ready to be set back in time to those days where pirates ran amock and everybody wore fancy and hot clothes. So if you’ve ever wanted to be a pirate, then this is the place just for you.
Tayrona National Park.
When it comes to beaches, only a few can rival the shores that Colombia has. Especially here, in Tayrona National Park. It is a place where you will be able to experience true oneness with nature and indulge in the beauty of South American beaches. But that is not all there is to this place. In Tayrona National Park, you will also be able to explore and study ancient ruins that are sure to pique your interest. And if you just want to relax, then you can also set up camp under the coconut trees near the beaches, or maybe visit the swamps or scrublands. Either way, Tayrona National Park has it all for you!
When you want to take a break from all the hustling and bustling, or maybe enjoy some of nature’s finest, then head on over to Colombia in South America. It may be a way to go, but that is the whole point of getting away from it all really. So if you’re in need of some of the best beaches in the world, or maybe re enact your pirate dream, then you know just where to go now.
