Extending from the Gulf of Urabá to the Gulf of Venezuela, the coveted Caribbean
region of Colombia is home to the historic cities of Cartagena and Santa Marta,
and spans a territory of approximately 994 miles along the northern coastline. Its
proximity to the island chains of Rosario and San Bernardo makes this region a haven
for divers who can explore thriving underwater worlds found amongst expansive stretches
of coral reefs and lush mangrove forests.
As the second most bio-diverse country on the planet, there is plenty to explore
on dry land as well. Home to both the Andes mountain range and the Amazon rainforest,
Colombia specializes in ecotourism. With nearly 2000 species of birds found in Colombia
- that’s nearly 20% of the world total! - bird-watching is much more than a spectator
sport. Head to the heart of the Amazon and find parrots, parakeets and macaws, or
venture closer to the coastline and try to spot the Sapphire-bellied Hummingbird.
If you’re searching for a different type of birdie, hit the links at one of 50+
world-class golf courses in Colombia, many designed by the likes of Robert Trent
Jones, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus. The exotic landscapes and expansive views
offered on these fairways might make that double-bogey easier to stomach.
Visitors are also sure to be captivated by the peaceful and easygoing culture found
throughout Colombia. Consistently topping the list of the “World’s Happiest Countries”
that contentment is apparent in the demeanour and relaxed pace of day to day life
in Colombia. Enjoy leisurely strolls through historic cities, browse an array of
locally-made handicrafts on offer at street markets, or hit a café for a cup of
fresh Colombian coffee.
