Colombia has been called the happiest country in the world, and this Independence by Globus holiday in South America is the happiest way to bring a smile to your face with expert Local Guides in Bogota, Pereira, and Cartagena.

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. From Cartagena, fly to Medellín--one of the most beautiful towns in South America and dubbed the “City of Everlasting Spring” for its plentiful coffee plantations, flower farms, orchids, and butterflies!
