Planned destinations for the Colombia Golf Trip

Bogota

Bogota is the capital of Colombia with over 10 million inhabitants. It is Colombia’s political, economic, cultural and tourist center and generates most of the national GDP.

At over 2,600 meters (8,600 feet) above sea level, it is the third-highest capital city in South America. With average temperatures of 7° C – 20° C (45° F – 68° F), the climate varies between cold and temperate. Bogota has an area of 1,775 km2 (685 sq mi), which is more than twice the size of Singapore.

Bogota was founded by the Spanish in 1538 but was already inhabited by the Pre-Muiscas. Most of the tourist attractions are located in the historic center of La Candelaria. The city’s wide range of cultural offerings, represented in museums, theaters and libraries, has earned it the name “South American Athens”.

Some essential sights in Bogota are the local mountain Monserrate, the Gold and Botero Museum as well as the food markets Paloquemao and La Perseverancia.

Cali

Cali is the third largest city in Colombia and the capital of the Valle del Cauca department. The city is 1,080 meters (3,339 feet) above sea level and the average temperature is 26° C (78° F). The population is over 2.2 million.

Cali is a vibrant metropolis with a rich history and diverse culture. Located in the southwest of the country, the city is known for its lively atmosphere, vibrant street scenes and passionate music and dance traditions.

The city was founded in the 16th century and has since developed into an important economic and cultural center. Cali is famous for its salsa music and dance scene, which has gained international fame. Salsa festivals and competitions are regularly held here, attracting dancers from all over the world.

Cali offers a diverse culinary scene ranging from traditional Colombian dishes to international cuisines. The city is surrounded by stunning scenery, including the majestic Andes and the nearby Cauca Valley.

Local culture is reflected in the many art galleries, museums and cultural events that take place throughout the year. The historic old town of Cali offers a mix of colonial architecture and modern life, while modern neighborhoods are home to vibrant businesses and shopping centers.

Medellin

Medellin is the second most populous city after Bogota. The city has a favorable geographic location in the broadest part of the natural region known as the Valley of Aburrá, located in the central Andes at 1,495 meters (4,905 feet) above sea level. This keeps the city at a comfortable temperature of between 14° C and 26° C (57° F to 79° F).

This spring climate in East Antioquia gives the region the privilege of being the second largest flower producer and exporter in the world, which is why Medellin is known as the “City of Eternal Spring” and the “Capital of the Mountain”.

The city has a modern infrastructure – it is the only city in Colombia with a subway system – and is considered the innovation center of the country. Museums, interactive parks, churches and city tours are among the attractions in Medellín. Must-do activities in Medellin include the graffiti tour in Comuna 13, visiting Arvi Park, taking photos in Botero Square and exploring the Botanical Gardens.
