Colombia, the country with the best coffee, is a gloriously fertile, green country with friendly, helpful people and a wealth of spectacular sights and many attractions little known, so far, by foreigners. The Caribbean coastline, the appeal of Cartegena and its rich colonial history, the magnificent gold museum in Bogota and climbing in the Andes, are all covered in this new guide.
