A last minute getaway to Colombia mixes the lush Coffee Triangle with the Caribbean coastal flair of Cartagena for seven days of exploration in two distinct regions.
The holidays are upon us, but there’s still time to steal away for a few days with a luxury last minute getaway to Colombia. From Miami, you can be in Bogota in under four hours, making our last minute getaway to Colombia one of our most accessible jaunts around the world.
You’ll begin in the Eje Cafetero region, also known as the Coffee Triangle, where java is the way of life. Your accommodations are at Hacienda Bambusa, an authentic colonial hacienda that is surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Central Andes Mountain range, forests of centenary and bamboo, and mazes of plantain, manioc, and orange plantations. It’s particularly known for its fresh food and legendary coffee.
While there, you’ll take excursions into the cloud forest, enjoy historical and cultural tours, and head up in a hot air balloon to see the Coffee Triangle region from above. You’ll also enjoy a cup of Joe with a coffee tasting and picnic.
Next you’ll head to the Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara, a 17th century colonial jewel and UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of Cartagena’s Old City. A member of Sofitel’s prestigious Legend collection, this convent-turned-hotel is a rare and luxurious icon where historical charm, exquisite architecture, and renowned service blend with gourmet cuisine, a world-class spa, and the largest pool in the Walled City for an unforgettable stay on Colombia’s Caribbean coast.
While in Cartagena, you’ll have private tours of land and sea – a private city tour takes your through the San Felipe Fortress and many churches and monasteries of the Old City, while a private cruise in Cartagena Bay gives you a different perspective of the city. A chocolate and rum tasting is a sweet treat during your time here, while a dinner at Club de Pesca, one of the most famous and traditional restaurants in the city, is the perfect punctuation to your luxury last minute getaway in Colombia.
