Columbia: the Bradt Travel Guide is packed with practical advice and valuable tips for safe travel giving visitors the tools to get under the skin of this emerging destination. Where to stay - from fincas and cabanas to coffee farms. Eat cosmopolitan Bogotá's haute cuisine, or fresh shrimp and arepas from street vendors. Getting around by buseta, bike, kayak, plane and boat. Only guide to include the Los Llanos savannas. Revealing historical, social and cultural sections. A comprehensive guide to Amazonian wildlife."
