Colombia is a country at the northern tip of South America. Its landscape is marked by rainforests, Andes mountains, and numerous coffee plantations. In the high-altitude capital, Bogotá, the Zona Rosa district is known for its restaurants and shops. Cartagena, on the Caribbean coast, has a walled colonial Old Town, a 16th-century castle and nearby coral reefs.
We visited Bogotá, Colombia and stayed at the Hilton Bogotá. We enjoyed exploring Bogotá and surrounding areas, including the Cerro de Monserrate, Museo del Oro and Plaza de la Independencia. We also explored Plaza del Minero and the The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá, an underground Roman Catholic church built within the tunnels of a salt mine 200 meters underground in a halite mountain.
