Brits flock to Colombia this summer

CartagenaOver the past ten years Colombia has seen huge growth in the number of British tourists it receives and is showing no signs of slowing down as more travellers make their way to South America.

Offering year-round sunshine and fascinating culture complete with natural landscapes and a hassle-free way of life, the location is a clear hit with Brits seeking a truly unique holiday experience.

The power of the pound

Thanks to the strength of the pound against the Colombian Peso there has never been a better time for Brits to plan a visit to the stunning country.

Everything from the cuisine to the shopping experiences and lodgings can be experienced on a smaller budget so Brits can travel to this stunning country without breaking the bank in the process.

Last year’s travellers paid around £31 or $97,500 Colombia Pesos for a three course meal in Cartagena but today they can get the same for less than £21!

It’s not just the food that’s good value for money either. Women can also get more bang for their buck when it comes to designer swimsuits with the average cossie costing £64 in 2014 but £43 now.

This means British travellers can up their game by opting for a more sophisticated, top tier Colombian holiday with hotels, tours and attractions costing a great deal less than 12 months ago.

So why the change?

Increased UK flight capacity and a booming hotel sector are behind the growth in Brits travelling to Cambodia’s top destinations which include Bogota, Cartagena, Santa Marta and Medellin.

What’s more, Colombia’s national airline Avianca has just teamed up with ProColombia to provide passengers with even larger savings on direct flights to the capital city and thus making this location even more attractive to holidaymakers.
