Naya Traveler creates journeys that transcend mass tourism, bringing back purpose and depth to travel through authentic cultural experiences that honor the traditions and heritage of its destinations. With highly personalized and curated itineraries, Naya Traveler announces the launch of private, tailor-made luxury trips to Colombia starting March 2022. In honor of International Women’s Day, Naya Traveler sits down with Blanca Londono, the woman behind Colombia’s Finca Silletera, a multi-generational female-owned business finding its value in a family tradition, local culture, and female empowerment.
Set in the heart of the Latin American tropics, Colombia’s natural wealth, second most biodiverse country in the world, cultural charm, dubbed ‘the most welcoming place on earth’, and innovative sustainability practices within the tourism sector, make Colombia one of the most exciting places to discover this year.
Pristine beaches and colonial charm; lush Amazonian jungle and pre-columbine traditions; Rolling emerald hills and that distinctive aroma of home-grown coffee; This is Colombia—at a glance. Delve a little deeper, and the familiar gives way to the unexpected including snow-covered Andean summits, the arid plains of El Paramo, an eclectic blend of tradition and vanguardism in the thriving cities of Medellin and Bogota, and a local cuisine that defies the senses, both on the street and in the most exclusive chef’s tables in the country.
With the Andes as a backdrop and not one, but two ocean coastlines, Colombia’s biodiversity, historical wealth, and charming hosts offer a wealth of opportunities to discover the beating heart of Latin America. For those on the adventurous side, Colombia’s contrasting landscapes set the stage for incredible mountain hiking in the Sierra of Cocuy, birdwatching and jungle treks to the Ciudad Perdida in Tayrona, cycling through the valleys of Zona Cafetera, scuba diving in the Caribbean reefs, and whale spotting in the Pacific coast of Cali. History, culture, and art abound in the cobble-stoned streets of colonial Cartagena and Barichara, from national museums housing extensive collections of pre-Columbian gold and Fernando Botero’s sumptuous sculptures, to the local markets and craftsmanship of family-run ateliers.
Naya Traveler’s curated journeys to Colombia will draw knowledge from locally sourced expertise to offer exclusive experiences that celebrate and respect the heritage, traditions, and culture of these destinations. Working with a hand-picked selection of luxury accommodations, both boutique and private, the journey’s stays will ensure an uncompromising level of service and comfort without foregoing the cultural and natural context of the regions within each destination.
