Hotels & Meals
Colombia offers a very varied cuisine based on ancient, region-specific traditions. Of course it is slightly seasoned with influences from neighbouring countries. Columbia does not really have one national dish, but two competitors come very close. Arepas (a kind of pancake made of cornmeal) and Sancocho (a soup made of a certain kind of banana, potato and meat). For fruit enthusiast Colombia is the place to be. Fruits such as pineapple, banana, pitahaya, etc abound and are juicy and delightful thanks to the ideal climate! What we call exotic fruit grows naturally right in the woods or the countryside.
