We do our best every day to represent and promote the elements that make Colombia a unique country, savoring its gastronomy, its textures, its colors and the warmth of its people.

Located in the north of South America, bathed by the richness of two oceans, intertwined by multiple rivers and crossed by the imposing mountains of the Andes, Colombia is one of the most megadiverse countries in the world thanks to its multicultural population, regions and races. Columbia is a privileged country due to its valleys, plains, coasts, mountains, jungle and desert, as well as its great variety of climates which favor the diversity in plants, animals and ecosystems.

Visit and learn about the different parks and nature reserves. The Tayrona Park, the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta or the Los Nevados Natural Park are some of the many options.

Colombia is also the birthplace of great artists such as singers, athletes, writers, painters and many others. A culturally rich and artistic country, as well as picturesque, Colombia is ideal for visiting museums, art galleries, international fairs and catching a bit of Latin American history and tradition. Visit one of the many craft markets or archaeological parks and learn about our roots.

Thanks to the growth in the Colombian economy, the country has become a privileged destination for business trips, leisure or adventure. If you travel to Colombia you can enjoy and even learn to dance its rhythms: cumbia, salsa or vallenato. The country also hosts famous world fairs and festivals such as The Flower Fair in Medellin, the Barranquilla Carnival, The Cali Fair or Manizales Fair are must visits at least once.
