Colombia is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world, a fact that attracts travelers looking for variety in their vacation. It is bordered by the Caribbean on one side and the Pacific on another, so if you want great beaches, you’ve got it. The Andes are here too, so if you prefer mountainous landscapes, you’re good to go. Got jungle fever? Set your sights on the Amazon. Whatever environment your heart desires, Colombia surely has it.
