Wildlife & Diverse Natural Landscapes


Officially the Republic of Colombia, this country is uniquely located on both the Pacific and Caribbean coast in the northwestern corner of South America.

Colombia is blessed by great diversity, with six distinct natural regions, each with its own characteristics, traditions, climate, music, and gastronomy!


The Caribbean, Pacific coast, Amazon, Orinoco River basin, the insular (islands), and finally the Andean region which runs through the center of the country from the southwest into the northeast, 

Bogota, the National Capital, lies in the Andean region on a high plateau over 2,600 meters above sea level. A huge and multicultural city, it is a center for government and cultural life.


Over centuries of forced migration through slavery alongside voluntary migration, people with European and African heritage have landed on Colombia’s shores. Regional culture often represents a blend of these backgrounds meeting with the native populations, resulting in a huge variety of cultural traditions, especially dance, music, and cuisine!

About Colombia

Our favorite way to design your trip includes locally-focused, absolutely stunning, and culturally rich places. We encourage you to travel slowly, allow time to get caught up in the moment, stop for a dance and go where the moment takes you - in true Colombian style!

  • Meet the locals! Join a community-based tourism excursion that puts you in touch with folks working on behalf of their community. 

  • Visit a small working coffee farm and learn the coffee locals drink is so different from the exports you enjoy at home!

  • Be enchanted by colonial towns and rural villages as you embrace their relaxed pace of life.

  • Gain a fresh perspective as locals share their stories, and you see firsthand the transformation that’s been taking place in the last two decades. It will completely defy your expectations!

  • Head to the remote and pristine Tayrona National Park for a side of Colombia you probably didn’t know existed!

  • “Am I a birder now?”, is what you’ll be asking after you see the spectacular flora and fauna in this wonderland of biodiversity.

  • Holidays, festivals and celebrations are everywhere! Put on your party hat baby, as Colombia beckons you to have some fun!

Did you know...

Our trips are created in collaboration with and led by locals! Travelers will spend their days with people from the local community who kindly invite you to experience being in this lively and welcoming place and to learn a bit of its history.

But the most meaningful part of your journey is the invitation to connect with people that make it so incredibly special!

How long do you suggest for a trip that includes at least two different cities or regions?

We usually advise from 6-10 nights, depending on the pace you like to travel, and the places you are interested in visiting.

My flight gets in the day before my group, can I stay at the hotel an extra night?

Please send an email to hello@conscioustravelcollective.com and we will check on that for you!

What airport is best to arrive into?

It depends on your specific trip details, however Colombia has several international airports offering direct flights to the USA, as well as many smaller airports tat service regional flights for intra-country travel.

Do you only work with small groups?

We welcome all travelers, this means solo, couples, trios, groups - you name it! We encourage small group travel because its a great way to have a private, fully curated experience for a better value, plus the immersive experiences work so well for sharing with a group. That said, we have lots of expertise in travel design for just 1-2 travelers and know how to capture the essence of immersive travel for travel groups of every size!

How many travelers are in a small group?

By "small" we mean 4 to 14 travelers. This area is serviced by both short intra-country flights and automobiles so we can easily get your group from place to place. Some of the boutique properties and experiences are best with a maximum of 14 guests which is why we recommend keeping it this size or smaller. 

What currency is used in Colombia?

The Colombian Peso, currency code COP.
