Colombia has to offer something for every one, also for families! Depending on the interests of your familiy and the age of the children there are many things to discover and experience together, from adventurous wildlife to relaxing days at the beach.
During a classic circuit through Colombia there are many activities and excursions that are perfect for families. Activities like horse back riding, bike tours or trekking are perfect to discover Colombia with the whole family and a lot of fun for the children. Popular are graffiti tours through Bogotá and Medellín to show a part of our culture and history in a modern way. To get to know our food and try fruits you have never seen before a visit of local markets like Bazurto in Cartagena or Paloquemao in Bogotá are perfect.
In the department of Santander we are collaborating with an organic cocoa farm, where you can spend the whole day and produce your own chocolate. In the coffee zone there are also cocoa haciendas or coffee haciendas where you can learn more about the agriculture and also relax at the hacienda.
If your familiy is seeking for an adventure destinations like the Llanos, Cerros de Mavecure or the Pacific coast are definitely worth a visit. In the Llanos you can live in a camp, have bonfires with the Llaneros, the Colombian cowboys, and learn about their habbits while observing many animals. At the Pacific Coast you can hike through the jungle, explore hidden waterfalls and swim in the ocean. From June to October you can also see humpback whales.
To end your trip with some beach days you can choose between the Caribbean and the Pacific. At the Caribbean there some beautiful beachhotels around Cartgena, the Islands or around Santa Marta.
