COLOMBIA

Colombia is located in the north west of South America. It is bordered by Panama (northwest), The Caribbean Sea (north), Venezuela and Brazil (east), Peru and Ecuador (South), and the Pacific Ocean (west). 70% of Colombia’s 46 million inhabitants live in an urban area. The country is mainly Roman Catholic and the official language is Spanish. Various indigenous groups around the country still speak their traditional languages and practice traditional cultural beliefs.

The northern Caribbean coast offers idyllic conditions for any number of exciting water sports and is characterised by a host of modern beach resorts. For culture enthusiasts, the country has a rich historical legacy which includes many pre-Hispanic ruins, many of which lie within easy reach of the capital, Bogotá. Bogota also has some fine examples of colonial architecture. Colombia has thirty-four national parks as well as a growing number of nature reserves which provide opportunities to pursue a wide range of activities ranging from climbing or mountain biking in the Andes to bird-watching and fishing in the Amazon.
