Colombia is emerging as one of the ‘it’ destinations of the moment but a honeymoon here is undoubtedly still very original. Those who are eager to dive off the beaten track will be rewarded with a vibrant, zestful country brimming with character and unspoilt landscapes.

Colombia is seductive from city to shore; the country has shrugged off the nefarious identity of yester-year and honeymooners will be greeted by remarkably friendly locals and some of the most beautiful scenery in Latin America. From the lush green hills of the coffee region and the Amazon jungle to colonial cities steeped in rich history and dappled azure waters, Colombia is incredibly diverse for the inquisitive honeymooner.

Speaking of colonial cities, Cartagena is a cool mix of culture and creativity; a stroll through its cobblestone streets, complete with flower-lined balconies, is romantic in itself but we would recommend taking a guide who can breathe life into the city's colonial architecture, monasteries and brightly coloured mansions. In the evening, sail out by private boat on shimmering Caribbean waters to watch the sun set, ice cold cocktail in hand. Another city worth a mention is Bogota, where innovative chefs are cooking up quite the foodie scene and upscale shops and artisans are cultivating trendy modern districts. The city's flower markets are particularly pretty with eyefuls of fresh cut roses cascading out of street stalls.

For a complete contrast, head to Colombia's charming coffee region, framed by the Central Andes mountain range. We can organize everything from horse riding across verdant valleys to private picnics beneath the enormous wax palms dotted throughout the Colombian countryside.

For beach lovers, the coastline of Tayrona National Park is a far cry from its glittery Caribbean neighbours. Picture-perfect and completely unspoilt, it is fringed by deep forests alive with exciting flora and fauna. Days can be spent enjoying romantic lazy lunches for two on secluded beaches and swimming beneath remote waterfalls.

Honeymooners in Colombia will be pleased to find a wide variety of chic accommodation, from converted 17th Century houses and pretty posadas to haciendas and traditional farm houses - local character is infused throughout. Moreover, the emergence of boutique retreats and Design Hotels is raising the bar as well as the country's first 6-star hotel, The Viceroy Cartagena, poised to open later in 2017.

To sum up - move over, Caribbean, there's a new kid on the honeymoon block.
