ayrona National Park’s gorgeous beaches are a highlight of northern Colombia, home also to the famed Ciudad Perdida, Lost City. The cleared mountaintop terraces of the “lost city” shine like a green grassy beacon declaring the country’s rebirth as a travel destination at the crossroads of the Caribbean and South America. The area used to be affected by the conflict between the FARC and the Colombian Army, but it is now safe for travelers and locals alike.
