Why This South American Country Is a Dream Destination for Citygoers and Adventure Lovers Alike
With the South American nation finally at peace, itâs safer than ever to tour both its dynamic cities and its wild places. Savvy travelers are looking to BogotÃ¡, the countryâs capital, and MedellÃn, which has gone from crime-ridden to trendsetting in the blink of an eye.
Both cities have hotels to suit every taste. When the Grand Hyatt BogotÃ¡ opens this month, it will have the countryâs largest spa. The seven-room Casa Legado offers a bright, homey take on Modernism that will appeal to design lovers. The rooms in the ultra-chic Click Clack Hotel have floor-to-ceiling windows with views across the city. Early next year, a branch of the hotel will open in MedellÃn with a commercial development attached. Patio Del Mundo is a seven-room villa in the heart of MedellÃ n surrounded by lush gardens.
