10 Countries in 1
Few places on earth can match the extraordinary biodiversity of Colombia. Only Brazil, in fact, and that's 10 times the size. Its two coasts teem with wildlife like humpback whales, sea turtles and hundreds of bird species; its cream cashmere sands attract beach lovers; and the Amazon rainforest houses 212 species of mammals and 195 reptiles.
Colombia's modern cities bristle with romance and cool-but-friendly people. Verdant parks and plazas attract live musicians and dancers while chic bars host business-types flirting over cappuccinos and cocktails. After dark, salsa beats and Latin classics chime the cobbled streets illuminated by lights twinkling from overhanging palms.
