If we only had 2 weeks: Colombia itinerary | Whistlestop All-rounder
I’ve been lucky enough that a location independent business meant that I could travel extra slow. If this is an option to you, I strongly recommend that you take your time; really getting to know and appreciate each country you’re in rather than try to cram as many passport stamps as you can into a few months. I would advise at least one month in each country in Latin America, perhaps with the exception of Panama and Paraguay, which have less going on. However, that’s not always possible, as I’m often asked by people who only have a 2 week vacation from their jobs where I would prioritise going in the given time. So behold! Here is my 2 weeks in Colombia itinerary for anyone who is tight on time but still wants to soak up the best that this incredible country has to offer. Don’t forget also to check out the Ultimate Colombia Bucketlist to create your own route around the 29 top things to do in Colombia.
Now travel in Colombia is so very diverse and offers so much that I couldn’t narrow it down very easily. Thus, I’m going to create 4 versions of the 2 weeks in Colombia itinerary for you, depending on whether you’re looking for paradise relaxation, adventure, culture or a whistlestop all-rounder. First up…
2 weeks in Colombia Itinerary:
Where to stay
Fly into Bogotá (where international flights are likely cheapest)
Chill out in El Parque de los Novios and grab dinner on Carrera 3 with Calle 17
If your 2 weeks in Colombia itinerary gets you to Santa Marta on a Sunday, don’t miss out on the Masaya Hostel pool party!
El Zaino/Tayrona Park
Wake up early and get to the Tayrona national park entrance for around 8am
Do the 2-3 hour hike (horses available but it’s not too strenuous) to the incredible beaches and head back before it gets dark
Don’t wanna go it alone?
If you want to see all the best of Colombia but don’t feel comfortable doing it alone, G Adventures offers a Colombia itinerary that is very similar to this (so it must be good!).
