The countdown begins for the end of the year celebrations, which are usually one of the most anticipated seasons for travelers around the world, among other reasons, due to the pause that is made in work and student activities, and which becomes a great opportunity to recharge batteries.

In this holiday season, Colombia is positioned as one of the protagonists at the regional level, thanks to the fact that it attracts visitors from all over the world who come to spend a few days to enjoy the wide variety of destinations that the country offers.

The end of the year is expected to reinforce the positive trend that has been taking place throughout 2022. A recent report presented by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism highlights that, with preliminary figures, between January and September non-resident visitors increased 160.1% compared to 2021. This, added to factors such as the favorable exchange rate for many foreigners, allows us to envision a good season for destinations around the country.
