Exploring Colombia

Having already completed one sabbatical and three holidays with Laterallife in 4 years, we had high hopes for our latest venture to Colombia this Summer.

And boy did it not disappoint! Fantastic planning and logistics as usual, wonderful ground handlers and hosts in country and exceptional attention to detail throughout.

All in the knowledge that the Laterallife team were ensuring everything was in order from a distance via WhatsApp. Which other travel company would do that?! Notwithstanding we were already seasoned fans of South America, Colombia was as diverse and beautiful as they come – from upbeat cities such as Bogota and Medellín, to the breath taking flora and fauna of the whales and scenery of the Pacific Coast and the magnificence of the Cocora Valley, topping things off with the chilling on the Caribbean coast by way of Cartagena and the unspoilt gem of Providencia.

Whilst we won’t forget the isolation and “simple” living at El Cantil in a hurry, the accommodation was again as varied as they come – from sophisticated city boutiques to country haciendas, grand historical buildings or rustic luxury all in keeping with their situation and delivering authenticity.

The Colombian people could not be more welcoming and positive. Across the team we definitely packed in some activities both planned and on the hoof – cycling, rafting, speed boats, scuba diving, snorkelling, hiking / climbing as well as a fine introduction to the explosive game of Tejo!

As you know we keep coming back to Laterallife (and our children will keep wanting to come with us) for the exceptional family experience all of the above delivers. In fact the kids are already planning the next one!

Thanks again!!
