My name is Frank and I run a travel agency in Bogota, Colombia. Have fun while reading!
Glamping in Colombia
The word glamping was recently created and is a combination of the words “glamorous” and “camping”. The term comes from English, but is now understood in every language, so to speak.
Typically, glamping looks like using a tent as the basic construction, to which you can also add fixed installations such as a toilet, wet zone, or even entire rooms.
The classic idea of glamping is the luxurious tent on a safari in Africa, with hundreds of servants and wild animals in the area. Today there are various derivatives and glampings in all possible and impossible places, constellations, and buildings.
So here we go on a trip to the glampings in Colombia. And one thing in advance, there is also the variant Safari with wild animals.
The Andes region in Colombia is the most populous and diverse region. It offers stunning landscapes, rich culture, and delicious cuisine. The region is divided into 10 departments: Antioquia, Boyacá, Caldas, Cundinamarca, Huila, Norte de Santander, Quindío, Risaralda, Santander and Tolima. Each department has its own charm and attractions, such as colonial towns, coffee farms, hot springs, waterfalls, and national parks.
If you are looking for a glamping experience in the Andes region, you will have plenty of options to choose from, ranging from cozy cabins to luxurious domes. You can enjoy the views of the mountains, lakes, or valleys while relaxing in comfortable beds, jacuzzis, or hammocks. Additionally, you can explore the surroundings and engage in activities such as hiking, biking, horseback riding, or paragliding.
Guatape is a fabulous destination in itself and can be reached from Medellin in just 2 hours. The island landscape in the artificial reservoir gives a wonderful panorama.
On one of the islands, there are also the so-called “mushrooms”, a glamping experience of a special kind. If you have not yet had enough appetite for a picture, you should quickly look at the homepage and other pictures and videos. After that, booking is definitely just a matter of form.

This glamping has a glass ball as a base, so the view at night is even more spectacular than during the day. There is also a terrace with tables, chairs and deckchairs, a small pool, and a terrace hammock.
This accommodation was also created in height so that you can enjoy a fantastic view of the surroundings.

Botanico Glamping, Copacabana
Botanico Glamping is a luxury camping site located in Copacabana, Antioquia, about 30 minutes away from Medellín. It offers five types of glamping accommodations, each with a private jacuzzi, a minibar, and a room service. The glamping site is surrounded by nature, where you can enjoy the views of the lake, the forest, and the mountains. You can also engage in activities such as hiking, biking, fishing, or birdwatching. Botanico Glamping is an ideal place to relax and reconnect with yourself and your loved ones.
Located directly on the Tota Lagoon, these accommodations offer a very natural experience. Built in the middle of trees, you can experience the starry sky above you in the evening by the common fire.

This offer is not called glamping on its own website, but a camping boutique. The equipment is good and you can certainly look forward to a good stay.

Nativo Glamping is located at the Hotel Hacienda Macedonia, which I visited some time ago. Already the hotel and its rooms are extremely spectacular and all in an elegant natural setting. In the meantime, the associated nature trail has probably been completed. Of course, the open-air showers should not be missing.
If you are looking for elegant glamping near the most beautiful town in Colombia, you are well-advised here.

Entrepinos Glamping is very close to Bogota and Choachi. A great view with a hammock is included and far and wide you don’t find a single human soul. So you can safely enjoy an overnight stay.

Certainly an interesting concept, Zen-tir is not the classic glamping offer. I wouldn’t call the installations glamorous, but sleeping in a transparent sphere with a direct view of the starry sky is definitely an amazing experience.

This is the Colombian interpretation of glamping, a dented old caravan that has been covered with wood on the inside.
This offer is also more of an idiosyncratic interpretation of glamping. Nevertheless, you can take a nice look at the trees through the large window.
These providers only have a Facebook page and the specified website does not work. However, located about 2.5 hours from Bogota on a lake, this glamping looks extremely inviting.

This rustic glamping is only 45 minutes drive from Bogota. There are good tents and a view of the beautiful mountains in the area. Also nearby are the Lagunas de Siecha, where I’ve been twice.
As part of the national park Chingaza, these lagoons are spectacular and the hike in the Paramo is an absolute highlight. However, it can also rain or have thick fog. In any case, I recommend rubber boots or high hiking shoes.

Bajo del Cielo means something like under the sky, which is absolutely true for this great glamping. The area offers fantastic undulating nature and from the location, you have a view over Tomine lake.
And it gets even better because you can reach Bajo el Cielo in around 90 minutes from Bogota.

Glamping Colombia, Guatavita
This glamping also impresses with its fantastic view. Set up in an elevated position, you can see the hills at the other end of the lake. The igloo-like tents offer enough space and adequate comfort. A terrace is also included because the tents are set up on a wooden platform.
The area around Guatavita offers many leisure activities. You can either do water sports, go hiking or cycling. However, it can get pretty cold too.

Not a classic glamping, these accommodations are more like Swiss mountain chalets, only much smaller. Originally a container and now lined with wood, it also has small kitchens, as well as a hammock, balcony, and terrace.
The view is also fabulous and you can also enjoy a fabulous view through the built-in windows.
Taken from: https://encuboglamping.co/
The spacious igloo tents are built on a wooden platform. There are also two-story tents and accommodations with a bathtub. Each tent also has a terrace with a wide view of the lake.

The tents, built on wooden platforms, offer all the comfort you could wish for. Set up a little further up the hill, you can enjoy a perfect view of the area from here.
La Villa Suiza, Neusa
The Swiss villa in Neusa offers two-story houses lined with wood. At least the curtains are reminiscent of a typical Swiss chalet. For friends of nature, this accommodation leaves nothing to be desired.
Taken from: https://lavillasuiza.com/
The houses, completely lined with wood, offer all the comforts: large windows, a terrace hammock, sauna, and of course a fantastic view.

A glamping where the glamorous part is an honest part of the offer. The tent, built on a wooden platform, has all the installations and amenities. There is also a spacious terrace, a terrace hammock, and an outdoor pool.
The fantastic view of nature and the river sweeten your stay.

Once again, a rather idiosyncratic interpretation of glamping can be found in San Francisco. Although there are a real bed and wet room in the tents, this offer is more reminiscent of camping.

Different types of accommodation are offered here. From the glass ball to the tent to a kind of bungalow, various options are available.

In this facility, you will find different types of tents, all of which offer a good standard. A good view is also included.

This offer provides a tent igloo and a beautiful view. However, the glamorous factor is interpreted very freely.
This glamping offer is interesting and has elements from the Arabic, Japanese and Mediterranean styles.
The Tatacoa Desert is certainly one of the most spectacular destinations in Colombia and is known for its excellent stargazing. The first time I visited it 3 years ago, I was impressed with the system, but it was obvious that the maintenance was neglected.
Customers of mine were there recently and the quality of service was very poor and there was still a lack of necessary investments. The glamping was also in the press because various environmental regulations were disregarded. I do not recommend a stay until further notice.

The department of Caldas is one of my favorite destinations and the offer of ‘the color of my dreams’ makes every traveler rave about it. Not only the natural result is spectacular, but also the particular installations are very good.
You have enough space in the tent and a large terrace.

During my last visit to Manizales, various stakeholders told me about this new offer. Unfortunately, I then lacked the time to visit. However, I will make up for this as soon as possible.
The offer can be described as luxurious and the accommodations lack neither good furnishings nor the spectacular view.

This offer does not have much to do with camping but has a more glamorous factor.

You can stay in tents or cabins that offer comfort and convenience in a rural setting. Additionally, you can enjoy activities such as wildlife watching, horse riding, canoeing, and camping. You can also experience the culture and traditions of the llaneros, the cowboys of Colombia, who are known for their music, poetry, and gastronomy.
Corocora Camp is the closest thing to classic glamping. However, with prices of around USD 500 per night, you should have the necessary cash.
This also includes overnight stays in luxurious tents, a Llanos safari with incredible wild animals, riding into the vastness of the Orinoquía plains, and maybe a good Chiguiro steak grilled for dinner.
I can only congratulate anyone who decides to go to Casanare. It is one of my favorite regions. However, I strongly recommend that you find out about the dry and rainy season beforehand.
