COLOMBIA

  

 

 

 

 

 

Colombia is rich in Spanish heritage, with its traditions and architecture all reflecting its colonial past. Bogota, the ultra modern capital city, has often been called the Athens of America because of its cultural influences since the time of the Spanish Conquistadors. Tropical in many parts, Colombia also enjoys the magnificent Andean Mountains which run the entire length of the country, as well as kilometres of beautiful beaches on its Caribbean and Pacific coastal resort areas.
