is situated in South America with the Caribbean and the
Pacific Ocean in the west and Panama, Ecuador, Peru,
Brazil and Venezuela on its land borders. The land is
enclosed by the Andes that run from the north to the
south right to the Caribbean coast’s lowlands.
Bogotá is the capital of Colombia situated at an altitude of 2,600 meters above sea level and throughout the country the official language is Spanish, although many local dialects as well as English, French, German and Italian are spoken.
The country is a treasure trove of untainted mountainous areas, jungles and coastline as well as magnificent archeological sites and sites offering a rich cultural past. Columbia’s reputation for drug dealing must not deter tourists’ enthusiasm to visit the country as it offers a myriad of attractions and natural beauty.
The sites not to miss are the Caribbean coast with its turqoise waters, the immense expanse of the Amazon Basin with its lakes and plains as well as the lost cities of magnificent pre-Columbian art and the typical colonial houses to be found in most of the picutresque towns througout the country.
The Tayrona National Park is a
must, with its beautiful beaches and coral reefs as is
the Islas del Rosario with its mangroves and mud
volcano, while the tropical islands of San Andreàs are
considered as the gems of the Caribbean.
San Agustin is one of South America’s most facinating archeological sites where one can admire pre-Columbian tombs and statues as well as megalithic sculptures and religious monuments.
The climate is a tropical one varying considerably according to the area, humid on the coast with pleasant winds, while it can get quite cold during the night in the montainous regions.
