Drive one hour South and you are in a lush subtropical forest with diverse plant and animal life. Drive an hour North and you find yourself in a rugged, serene, mountain region. Along the coast is miles and miles of sandy beaches, and in the interior of the country, some of the most beautiful rivers and valleys in the world.
It sounds like every outdoorsy traveler’s dream come true. And it is, but unfortunately, because of some civil unrest in Colombia, tourism has fallen in recent years. But travel experts still recommend traveling to Colombia—as long as some simple precautions are taking, it can be completely safe and one of the best deals around for true adventure travel.
But even the most adventurous traveler is going to need to take one day off from kayaking, hiking and exploring to take in the charms of Colombia’s large, bustling cities, such as Bogota. And of course, everyone needs souvenirs to bring home to family and friends. There are many products available in Colombia that you won’t be able to buy anywhere else in the world, but perhaps the most famous souvenir is made-in-Colombia jewelry. Colombia jewelry is famous for its use of locally-mined 18 karat gold and emeralds mined right here in the country. These precious materials are combined in motifs and styles often referred to as “Pre-Columbian”—based on the styles of jewelry found in archeological digs near ancient Aztec and Mayan cities. Believe it or not, these ancient styles can look sleek and modern when paired with the modern, simple clothing style preferred by fashionable Colombian women. Colombia jewelry stores can help you find the piece that is perfect for your taste, budget and clothing style, so you won’t look too formal or dated.
If you aren’t looking for expensive Colombia diamonds from a classy Colombia jewelry store, but still want to take home a pretty, made-in-Colombia ring or bracelet to remember your trip by, consider spending an afternoon shopping at one of Bogota’s many famous outdoor markets. While you will need to exercise more caution here than you would in a heavily guarded and supervised Colombia jewelry store, you will be able to find beautiful pieces incorporating semi-precious gemstones, crystals, and other inexpensive materials in unique local styles. Prices on these authentically Colombian rings, bracelets and necklaces are already quite affordable, and you can easily bargain, especially if you are buying more than one item.
No matter what kind of Colombia jewelry you are looking for—high fashion historical in a swanky jewelry store or simple and authentic at an open-air market—you can find the perfect piece to bring home to remember your trip.
