Until recently, Colombia was pretty much a “no go” for all but the most intrepid travellers. But times have changed. Most of Colombia is now as safe as anywhere else in the Americas. If you are sensible and follow advice when leaving the cities, you will not find a more beautiful and welcoming place to learn Spanish.
Snow-capped Andean peaks, an elegant capital city, dense tropical jungle, and astounding beaches; all under the equatorial sun. Colombia has all of these and much more. You would be hard pressed to find anywhere on the planet quite so naturally beautiful and – partly as a result of the bad years – so completely undamaged by tourism.
With both Pacific and Caribbean coastlines, you can spend your time on the beach or simply enjoy the buena onda of Colombia’s towns. Indulge in the colonial grace of Cartagena or the good life in Bogota, where excellent restaurants and buzzing nightclubs are abundant among the classic cathedrals and beautiful plazas. A Spanish course in Colombia with ESL is the perfect way to start your exploration of the country. Colombian people are incredibly welcoming to visitors; you will make friends here easily and learn one of the most beautiful forms of Spanish.
