Win a Trip to Captivating Colombia

Author: , November 10th, 2014

Colombia Sweepstakes

Colombia’s one of my favorite countries not only in South America, but in the world as a whole. That’s because in many ways, Colombia is South America. From cosmopolitan cities like Bogota and Medellin, to natural wonderlands like Tayrona National Park and the Coffee Triangle, to Cartagena and the beaches of the Caribbean coast, to a “lost city” that gives Machu Picchu a run for its money, you can find everything you find in the rest of South America within Colombia.

Only one thing in the world is better than taking a trip to Colombia – and that’s taking a free trip to Colombia. Click here to learn more about LAN’s “Captivating Colombia” sweepstakes, which starts today, and has as its grand prize a trip for two to Colombia. Or, continue reading to learn more about what makes Colombia such a captivating country to begin with.
