Must-sees in the land of a thousand rhythms

If there is one country in the Americas that reflects Latino joy, color, and diversity, it is Colombia, located at the center of the hemisphere. Its 49 million inhabitants speak Spanish but because of their warmth and resourcefulness, they find a way to communicate even without speaking Mandarin.

In 2017, Colombians welcomed 6.5 million tourists. From January to July this year, 4.6 million tourists traveled there, 32.9% more than during same period in the previous year. This reflects Colombia’s magnetism for international travelers. 

Colombia is the second most biodiverse country in the world. Its visitors can bathe in the waters of the Caribbean Sea, walk through ancient archaeological sites, watch a sunset on the plains by a river of seven colors, or enjoy wildlife experiences in the middle of the jungle.
