Colombia has five completely different regions, each of which offers a wide variety of experiences. Each one of the regions brings something completely different to the table, rendering each one of them an area worth exploring. In this page we hope to help you cross some of Colombia's paradises of your bucket list, and above all inspire you to add more.

There are many destinations in Colombia you can reach by just jumping in a car and driving towards them. The roads from Bogota to Medellin have recently been improved. From Bogota it is also possible to get to Pereira and even all the way to Santa Marta (this will be a longer trip, so prepare to spend a night somewhere in the middle). Other than cities there are many beautiful towns relatively near Bogota that you can spend long weekends exploring. Barichara, Villa de Leyva, Raquira, and Suesca are just a few. Additionally, you can drive up to the small towns on that lie right on the edges of the city for day trips to famous locations like the Salt Cathedrals in Zipaquira.
CNG offers help for any staff members who would like to get a drivers license. Below you can find the form where all instructions are given for this endeavor.

The El Dorado airport in Bogota is ranked amongst the 50 busiest in the world in terms of both passengers and cargo. Additionally, it was ranked as the best airport in South America and took 46th place in the world in the 2016 Top 100 Airports list. Adjacent to the main area of the airport is the "Puente Aereo" an area where only Avianca (Colombia's main airline) planes land and depart to exclusively national destinations. If you wish to travel into the areas of Colombia that would be more difficult to reach by land, air travel is always the best option. The tickets are generally very affordable and you can comfortably reach destinations within every region of the country.
