Systema Solar
Forget Juanes, forget Shakira and even put down your Carlos Vives album. Systema Solar There’s far more to Colombian music than just these artists and limiting yourself to just these is to do the independent music scene an injustice. While many may have heard of Bomba Estereo and ChocQuibTown from FIFA, or their various appearances on MTV Award shows, this is just scratching the surface of what’s on offer and, as these bands get bigger, it’s getting harder and harder to...

Surfing at Tayrona Beach
When thinking of Colombia you wouldn’t initially think of swinging a golf club in the picturesque valleys of Bogota, but that’s exactly why Bill Clinton came. In fact, Colombia is great for a number of sports that you wouldn’t picture doing when you planned to travel to Colombia. Here I’ve collected a few of the best ones, so be sure to check out these activities when you get here. 1. Horse riding Horse riding in Colombia isn’t the first thing...

Musicians in Periera
Every culture has its ticks. Being English I spend an inordinate amount of time sitting in a pub drinking beer and an even greater amount of time avoiding social awkwardness. I can't hug well and it takes me over two sentences to ask someone to move ('excuse me, terribly sorry to interupt. Would it be at all possible for you to just move ever so slightly to the left so that I can pass? Thank you kindly'). Even so, the things...

Once synonymous with violence, drugs and Pablo Escobar, it's rapidly gained a reputation as one of the most desirable places for an expat to live in Latin America, as well as a must visit city on any itinerary.
