Colombia has been called the happiest country in the world, and this Independence by Globus vacation in South America is the happiest way to bring a smile to your face with expert Local Guides in Bogota, Pereira, and Cartagena. Peruse the impressive collection of pre-colonial gold in Bogotá’s glittering Gold Museum and take a fantastic ascent on a funicular ride to 10,000-foot Mount Monserrate for soaring views of the city below. Indulge in the I-time you deserve with a day to explore on your own. Take you pick from 50 fabulous museums, and the markets and shops you’ll find hard to resist. Consider a visit to the popular pilgrimage site at the underground salt cathedral of Zipaquirá. Next, fly to Pereira in the heart of the Coffee Triangle and see what’s brewing with a visit to a local coffee farm, plus many more awakening experiences in the Cocora Valley and Filandia. Hop a flight for Cartagena on the Caribbean Coast and join your Local Guide to explore the must-see streets and squares of this ancient city. Capture your imagination with pre-Colombian artifacts and pristine beaches on the Caribbean Sea. Magic!

The Globus Difference

Touring. Beyond.

Simply put, a tour is a perfectly planned vacation. Planning a vacation on your own is not easy—from the tedious research to the coordination of reservations and timing to complicated logistics. Add in currency conversions and language barriers and you have one hair-pulling project on your hands. A tour handles all the hassles, while you have all the fun.
