Perfect destination for ecotourism as the country not only offers the captivating views of the beaches from two coastlines but also three mountain chains, the isolated Sierra Nevada de Santa Maria and many different ecological regions such as Parama, tropical jungle vegetation, desert biomes, volcanoes and waterfalls.

Festivals and carnival are the next offers you don’t want to miss while visiting Colombia. Every season seems to have its hustles and bustles but the most popular ones are the Cali’s Fair, the Barranquilla’s Carnival, the Bogota Summer Festival, the Ibero-American Theater Festival, the Flower Festival and dozens of popular music festivals throughout the year such as Rock al Parque and Estereo Picnic.
