Colombia: Why Visit Now?

20130406-235422.jpg

Interview with Luis German Restrepo, U.S. Executive Director of Proexport Colombia, the government agency charged with promoting tourism, exports and investment for the fast-growing Latin American nation.

Q: Colombia has become an “it destination” recently. Can you shed light on the increased interest from travelers?

A: The beauty of Colombia is that there is something for everyone: We have some of the best beaches in the world, fantastic restaurants and a rich history. As a result, Colombia was named one of the “25 Must-See Destinations for 2013” by more than 350 Virtuoso luxury travel advisors. In spite of the global economic downturn, the arrival of foreign travelers to Colombia has kept a steady growth over the last decade reaching around 1.7 million on visitors in 2012, a 7% growth when compared to 2011 and positioning the United States as our main source market with 350,000 tourists last year.

Q: Why are so many people traveling to Colombia now?

A: Being Colombia the second most bio-diverse country in the world, the country offers activities to all types of travelers. From nature and adventure in Santander, Santa Marta and the coffee cultural landscape; to history and culture in Cartagena de Indias and Bogota; to pristine white sand beaches in San Andres, Providencia and Santa Catalina, visitors can enjoy extreme and unique activities suitable for young travelers, families and adults. In addition, Colombia is conveniently located with close proximity to the United States — a trip from Miami to Cartagena de Indias is just 2.5 hours away or 5.5 hours from New York to Bogota.

Tony Bourdain: a Colombia believer.

Tony Bourdain’s latest No Reservations blog entry is unusually sunny today — the last thing you’d expect, given that it deals with the outspoken cook’s trip to war-torn Colombia. Bourdain enjoyed himself but is suspiciously rheumy eyed in the retelling: “When you see a real change in the conditions and in the human hearts of a place where just a few short years ago, one neighbor couldn’t walk twenty yards over without risking death from another, where drug cartels recruited their murderous young foot soldiers by the hundreds, where even the police feared to tread. It makes one hopeful again — about the whole world.” Wait, what have you done with Tony Bourdain? Is his body still in Colombia somewhere? This doesn’t sound like the cynical figure we know and love. On the other hand, it does make us want to see the episode, which will air at 10 p.m. on the Travel Channel on June July 14.
