One of our Twil Agents, Rhonda Lewis visited Colombia in June and here is what she has to say:
Rhonda had the pleasure of staying two nights at the Four Seasons in Bogota. There are two Four Seasons in Bogota and they are strikingly different! Casa Medina is boutique, charming, and feels like an old traditional house with beautiful hand-carved wooden doors and fireplaces. On the other hand, the Four Seasons Bogota is more corporate and modern with very little public space because it is located right in the heart of the city surrounded by 5 restaurants on the same block. The hotel has superb service and an outstanding breakfast!
If you are a biker, many city streets are closed on Sundays, which presents the perfect opportunity to explore the city by bike in a safe, leisurely way. There are many incredible things to see such as markets, museums, the history, art and more!
From here Rhonda spent three nights at the beautiful Casa San Augustin, located in the heart of the old city. The building itself is rich in history from the 17th century and was previously three homes that were restored and converted into a hotel. Casa San Augustin is walking distance to amazing restaurants and shops.
Beyond the fantastic cities of Bogota and Cartagena, Colombia offers a variety of experiences such as art viewings; cooking lessons; helicopter tours; rum and/or coffee tastings; historical tours; archeological tours; and outstanding cuisine options. If you like to swim, snorkel, fish or scuba dive, just off the coast of Colombia, you can find the Islas del Rosario. Rosario Islands are one of the 46 Natural National Parks of Colombia and has one of the most important coral reefs of the Colombian Caribbean Coast.
The weather in Bogota averages between 12-15 degrees year-round, while Cartagena is around 30 degrees.
Columbia is a fantastic travel destination and we highly recommend you checking it out! If you have any questions or inquiries, please contact your TWIL Travel Advisor at TWIL Travel today.
