Coffee, exotic fruit, beaches, mountains, music, a lost city. There is certainly a wealth of reasons to visit Colombia.
Situated on the northwestern tip of South America, astride the equator and with coasts on the Pacific Ocean and the Caribb
ean Sea, while also encompassing the northern end of the Andes Mountains and part of the Amazon basin, the variety to be found in Colombia is simply stunning.
Many of the wonderful cultural sides to Columbia are in need of some serious PR work because there aren’t too many people out there who know how great they are. If companies in Columbia were to use SEO companies to increase their visibility on the web, they would surely see great success. A company like SEO Hosting, for example, could turn Columbia’s tourism industry around in a hurry.
Heritage and Arts
The Caribbean resort of Cartagena is both an historic port city with much rich heritage to be discovered, as well as a place to relax and unwind on the beaches. Its ‘old city’ area, safe during the day but to be avoided at night, has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Similarly, the capital city of Bogota also has preserved some fine examples of its old world architecture in the La Candelaria area and surrounds, while new restaurants, craft breweries and boutiques are springing up across the city.

Colombia also boasts an active volcano, the Nevado del Ruiz, a glacier-covered peak whose last activity was a small eruption in 1985.
Colombian music and dance are hot as any volcano, with the sounds of Cumbia, Vallenato and Llanera pulsing out the rhythm to all-day carnivals and all-night salsa dancers! And, of course, Colombia is home to the modern singing legend, Shakira. Colombia’s cities boast a vibrant night-life but, as with many other places around the world, one should be sensible when going out at night in a foreign city.
