Bounded on the north by the Caribbean Sea, in the west by the Pacific Ocean, the northwest by Panama, the south by Ecuador and Peru, the east by Venezuela and the southeast by Brazil, Colombia is a country in South America, rich in culture and ancient heritage.
Welcome to the land where the Andes put their roots into the South American continent, where the Pacific Ocean embraces the Caribbean Sea, where the desert winks on the Amazon and where the sound of ancient time has left space to poetry; the land where there is a salsa step or blue chords of an accordion at the seashore.
There is much to see and explore in Colombia: It is the land of Gabriel García Márquez and its magical realism. Also, one can find here the archaeological ruins of San Agustín and the Lost City, Cartagena de Indias with its colonial class, Barranquilla and Pasto with their famous carnivals, Santiago de Cali with its joy and its musical rhythms, as well as Medellín with its Flower Festival.
The country has been inhabited by various indigenous peoples since at least 12,000 BCE. It’s rich heritage reflects the influences which have been brought to the country by different Amerindian civilizations, European settlers, forced African labor, and immigrants from Europe and the Middle East. In 1499, the Spanish landed first in La Guajira and by the mid-16th century colonized parts of the region with Santafé de Bogotá as its capital. It was in 1880 when independence from the Spanish Empire was achieved, with what is now Colombia emerging as the so called United Provinces of New Granada, before in 1886 the Republic of Colombia was finally declared. Panama seceded in 1903, leading to Colombia’s present borders.
Nowadays, the country is one of the world’s seventeen megadiverse countries, and has the second-highest level of biodiversity in the world. There is nothing which can’ be found: Highlands, grasslands, and deserts, the Amazon rainforest, moorlands, glacier regions, as well as coastlines and islands along both the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean – which is unique within the states of South America.
Colombia is the country with most birds and orchids species in the world. A truly magical land that exudes joy and elegance in all its facets. Welcome to this wonderful trip which is the Colombian mosaic with its people, music, culture, traditions, smiles, flavors… Welcome to Colombia!
