For many travellers, going on holidays is almost a synonym of relaxing at the beach. For many others, spending a couple of days at the beach is the perfect ending of an adventure trip. While for other travellers, just a day-trip to a nice beach is already enough.
Regardless of what type of traveller you are, coming to Colombia and not spending any time at the beach seems to be a bad idea and a waste of an amazing opportunity to discover some of the best Colombia vacation spots.
Plenty of countries in the world offer great beach destinations, but very few can offer gorgeous beaches in 2 different oceans, with fantastic temperatures all year-round.
Colombia has been blessed by its geographical location. Being at the north-west corner of South America, Colombia has very long coasts at both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.
In the north coast, travellers will find the typical paradise-style beaches: white sands, transparent calm waters and plenty of palm trees. These are great places to relax, sunbathe, swim and snorkel.
In the west coast, travellers will find gorgeous brown-sand beaches full of palm trees, located right between the wild Pacific Ocean and the dense jungle. These beaches are great places to relax, enjoy sunsets and do some wildlife watching.
