So, you’ve heard of the Bermuda Triangle. A much better place to get lost is in the Coffee Triangle in Colombia, which will draw you in with its spectacular views and succulent aromas and after a walk through the tropical hinterland, you won’t want to leave.
Coffee is an important crop in the area, but there are lots of other activities to keep you busy while you are in the area. There are glaciers to climb, revitalizing hot springs to swim in, ancestral art and culture to partake in, and ancient ruins to explore.
Colombia has two things that have made it famous, and both of them are actually not deserved: coffee and drug cartels. Yes, Colombia produces a lot of coffee, but Brazil produces a lot more, and frankly, a lot better. And while Colombia has been struggling with a virtual civil war financed by the drug trade, the conflict has stayed mostly on the fringes of society, and the country has blossomed despite it. Now its pretty much coming to an end, and Colombia is as safe to visit as any other Latin American country.
