Tourism in Colombia

Bienvenido a Colombia! Welcome to Colombia! A country where its people are equally as beautiful as its ever changing geographical landscape and its culture can only be defined as world class with endless possibilities. Many people know this extraordinary country for its world renowned coffee, but in addition, Colombia is a land that can offer you endless possibilities and is yours to explore.

Lonely planet which publishes information about world travel named Colombia as one of their top 10 destinations in 2006 and The World Tourism Organization reported in 2004 that Colombia achieved the third highest percentage increase of tourist arrivals in South America between 2000 and 2004, many tourists coming from neighboring countries Venezuela and Brazil, but also the United States.

Taking a tour through Colombia will lead you to some of the famous UN world heritage sites such as Cartagena and Malpelo Island and then to the capital city of Bogota which is home to many historical and wonderful treasures such as the botanical garden, gold museum and Bolivar square. If it’s your love of fresh coffee, then Colombia is the perfect pick and a visit to the national coffee park is a must.

Colombia not only possesses a mysterious and historical environment, but in addition, both of its Pacific and Atlantic Coasts provides for golden beaches, ancient burial sites, archaic cities and some of the world’s top 10 diving spots. If the landscape isn’t enough to lure you in, Colombians as people have been voted year after year as the world’s happiest people by happiness surveys. For these reason, but not limited to, the world is now seeing Colombia as the country that it is and this cultural revolution is finally gaining Colombia the respect that this country is rightfully entitled to.
