For my last trip, I went to South America on a one-way ticket with minimal clothing to accommodate for weather from sweltering heat to freezing cold, my camera, my iPad, my phone, and a few other essential items. Not once did I feel like I was lacking in any material items, and I can definitely say that I had a much more enriching experience than my mundane routine life at home! – Tracy Cheng, photographer/contributor

Home to ancient ruins of pre-Hispanic civilizations (Tierradentro and San Agustín); perfectly preserved colonial cities (Cartagena); magnificent topography and diverse terrain for multi-day jungle treks (Amazon and Ciudad Perdida), warm climate for whitewater rafting, high-altitude mountain climbing, pristine waters for world-class scuba diving, and every conceivable outdoor excursion you can think of; an impressive array of savory exotic fruits; the capital (and birthplace) of salsa dancing (Cali); and, of course, the world’s most famous coffee region (Zona Cafetera)—it’s little wonder why Colombia remains a premier getaway for travelers the world over. – Jerry Leon, Jetset Times Business Partnerships Associate
