Travel Blog: Colombia is the number 2 top place to travel in the world in 2016 according to Rough Guides.
The Rough Guides, a travel guidebook with more than 30 years in business publishing travel books covering more than 200 destinations, recently published their top 10 places in the world to visit in 2016.
As it could have been expected, Colombia made it to the podium with a remarkable second place. The renowned travel guidebook states that tourism is gathering pace and invites travelers to visit this wonderful country.
One of the reasons why Rough Guides chose Colombia as their top 2 destination to travel in 2016, is the fact that people are starting to realize that the country´s past reputation of crime and drugs is far from reality nowadays.
The guidebook invites travelers from all over the world to go to Colombia and discover cities such as the innovative Medellin or the enchanting Cartagena. Additionally, it recommends to travel to Colombia´s coffee region, trek to the ruins of the Lost City or relax at one of the many white-sand beaches of Colombia´s Caribbean sea.
To finalize, Rough Guides quotes Anthony Bourdain, an American celebrity chef that summarizes what most foreigners who travel to Colombia come to realize:
“It’s ludicrous this place exists and everybody doesn’t want to live here.”
