We spent almost 2 years travelling in Latin America from Mexico all the way down to Patagonia. Latin America is a fantastic destination to explore for gay travellers, with a range of beautiful natural scenery, classic world wonders, some of the best gay parties in the world, and the hottest guys you'll ever meet.

All of that makes the diversity and sheer excitement of this part of the world even more appealing to gay people across the board, but there are a select few destinations which have become particularly welcoming. Ever more visitors are discovering the many attractions and charms of Colombia, from pristine beaches to adventure and historic cities and towns.
