But if you want to experience all this together, come to Colombia!”
Colombia, the country in northwestern South America, impresses and fascinates its visitors after just a few days. It is a land full of passion, joie de vivre and a vibrant, colorful culture. On an area that is about as big as Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland together, visitors experience a variety of landscapes and a unique variety of plants and animals (Colombia is the country with the second largest biodiversity worldwide). If you visit Colombia yourself, you will fall in love with this exotic country! Not for nothing Colombia, inspired by its inglorious past, used for a long time the slogan “el riesgo es que te quieras quedar” (“the risk is that you want to stay”) for advertisement.
