Description

Frommer's guides aren't written by committee, or by travel writers who simply pop in briefly to a destination and then consider the job done. Frommer's authors Nicholas Gill and Caroline Lascom have been covering Colombia for over a decade and this book hits all the highlights, from the Amazon to the Andes. Gill and Lascom provide insights and detailed information so you can better explore the exquisite colonial core of Cartagena; enjoy the nightlife and museums of Bogota and Medellin; visit the coffee plantations of Zona Cafetera; trek through the Sierra Nevada's to see the country's famed Ciudad Perdida (Lost City); and more.

Inside this Colombia guide you'll find:

- Exact pricing for all lodgings, attractions, adventure outfitters, restaurants, tours, and shops, so there won't be nasty surprises
- Straight-shooting, opinionated reviews introducing you to the country's best beaches, rain-forest preserves, eco-lodges, restaurants, hotels, tours and attractions--in all price ranges, from budget to luxury
- Detailed maps throughout, plus a handy pullout map
- Helpful suggested itineraries so you can make the most out of your vacation time
