    With recent Spring sunshine streaming into the Caledonia office, we are reminded of how wonderful it is to be out and about after the winter months! Our director Kath was in Colombia on a fact finding trip in February - new itineraries soon to be launched include trips to the coffee zone, magical Mompox and colonial Cartagena. Jacqueline has recently returned from Cuba where our annual Cuba Music/Dance trip took place. And last but not least, some recent feedback from recently returned school group trips in Europe.


    Magical realism in Colombia

    (and Spanish courses too)

     All eyes are on Colombia which is fast becoming the 'must-visit' destination of South America. You want volcanoes, tropical national parks humming with birds and wildlife, mountain gorges and gorgeous scenery, Caribbean beaches, colonial towns, fabulous food, the best salsa in South America not to mention possibly the best coffee ever, plus a relaxed, friendly pace of life? Come to Colombia!  Direct flights from London to Bogota start up this July and we will be introducing our latest trips too. Brush up your Spanish before you explore the country in the hip capital city of Bogota, in the colonial Caribbean city of Cartagena, or in Cali, an absolute must for all salsa fans.
