60 Second Geography – Colombia


60 Second Geography – Colombia

Colombia is such a beautiful country, their people are always happy despite the hardship they’ve been through. Go to Colombia with an open mind and heart and you’ll be guaranteed to come back full of great memories. There is a lot to see in Colombia-Balnearios, or “retreats” within the cities, with Olympic pools, play areas for children, and some wonderful homemade lunch or dinner at an affordable price. The biggest risk for travelers in Colombia is common theft. Crime in general is only a minor concern in large urban areas such as Bogotá, Medellín and Cali, and as long as you take sensible precautions, you are unlikely to experience any problems.

  • Walk through Cartagena’s welcoming alleys and streets and you will discover one of the most fascinating towns in the Caribbean, with a uniquely romantic atmosphere and well-preserved colonial architectural treasures. To add to its Caribbean Sea appeal, Cartagena is home to the largest fortification in the Americas built during Colonial times to protect it from pirates and buccaneers. Throw in the cultural collage resulting from the Spanish-indigenous mix and you have a vibrant city that should be on every traveler’s bucket list.
  • Bogota today is a modern city with an intense and vibrant cultural, intellectual and social life. Picturesque, with an important architectural heritage, the world’s best Pre-Columbian art collection and fantastic museums, it also is a city of futuristic architecture with enormous modern buildings.
  • Colombia’s second most important city, Medellin, is a safe, modern city filled with sophistication and charm from its Spanish heritage. Medellin is known by its cultural encounters, the warmth of its people and the amazing views that are accompanied by clear blue skies and beautiful sunsets. Medellin is becoming the destination of choice for many new and seasoned travelers. Due to the beauty of its women, the warmth and friendliness of its people, the year-round spring-like weather, and its gorgeous flowers and mountains, Medellin attracts like a magnet.
  • Cali is known in Colombia as the capital of fiestas, street partying, dancing, and salsa. Cali’s Salsa Clubs are among the most famous in the entire world. As Colombia’s third largest city, Cali preserves the air of a small town populated by quaint residential communities, while reaching upwards with its reflective glass towers and concrete buildings. It is a city, which embraces the modern, without letting go of its colonial past. Cali has quickly become a Mecca for tourism thanks to the beauty of its women, its historical sites, and a multitude of spots for day and night entertainment.
