10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD COME TO COLOMBIA


There are a thousand reasons of why you should come and visit Colombia but in this world of lists, here is our top 10!

1. Security has improved dramatically: It is now safer to travel in Colombia than many other countries in the world.

2. The diversity of landscapes is mind blowing: Paradisical beaches with 1600 kms of Caribbean coast; 3 ranges of mountains including the Andes; 3 deserts; the Amazon… The list could go on (and on).

La Guajira, a landscape like nowhere else in the World3. People in Colombia are amongst the most beautiful and nicest in the world: There aren’t many places where this kind of hospitality and warmth is so ingrained in the culture. Don’t be surprised to find yourself dining with a family of Colombians after meeting someone just twice.

4. The biodiversity is the richest in the world: Colombia boasts the most bird species in the world, with 10% of the world’s endemic species. There are also 130,000 of the world’s 300,000 varieties of plants in Colombia.

You can see the Coffee Region, full of historical landscapes and world heritage sites; the Lost City’s pinnacle, the ancient city of the Tayronas; San Augustin’s pre-Columbian ruins and much, much more.

6. This is cheap: Taxis cost roughly $3US, you can eat lunch for $2.50 and buy a pack of cigarettes for just $2. Bargains galore.

7. Bogota and Medellin are world class modern cities: Full of amazing museums, hotels, restaurants, and currently experiencing a massive economical development so things can only get better.

8. Colombians surely know how to party: Get spellbound by the inimitable music and shake your body to the ubiquitous rhythm of Salsa.

9. There are more events, festivals and parties than anywhere else in the world: Enjoy the sights and sounds of the Barranquilla Carnival (the second biggest in the world), the Feria de Cali (the biggest Salsa festival in the world), Bogotá Theatre festival (the biggest open theatre festival in the world), and so much more.

    I'm loving your web pages and am using them for research for a film I'm making about Colombia.

    One small criticism. I would thoughtfully remove the reference to buying "a pack of cigarettes." Mercifully, travelers seem to be so health conscious these days that they wouldn't dream of doing that anyway. In any case, your web page is so upbeat and perfect. That line strikes the reader as being very out of date and insensitive. The point can be made by substituting any other useful item, especially one that enhances health and comfort rather than compromises them.

    Thanks, Elmer Hawkes
