The best Columbia hotels. Top 5

As a country still in its infancy in terms of tourism, Colombia cannot act as a luxury holiday destination compared to other regions of the world. However, these are just rumors. In particular, there are some great hotels in the cities of Bogotá and Cartagena. The advantage is that Colombia’s national airline now flies to Bogotá directly from Heathrow four times a week. So why not treat yourself? So, the top 5 luxury hotels in Colombia:
