Colombia is a developing country located in the northwest of South America, bordering Venezuela, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Panama. The country as thrived on internal tourism for some time and offers infrastructure in good condition and several accommodations, shopping and restaurants.
Historically rich in natural resources, including oil, coal and agriculture, the Colombian economy has developed at a rapid pace compared to its South American neighbours, with over half of its workforce currently employed in the service sector. However, millions still live in poverty and the economy remains heavily affected by internal insurgencies and high crime rates. Civil conflict has affected Colombia for over five decades and it was only in 2002 that the political situation in the country began to improve.
Colombia’s geography includes tropical rainforests, tropical plains and mountain ranges, with most of the population living in the mountainous western region and the northern coastline. Colombia is a beautiful country with many special attractions, such as the Cocora Valley in the Andean mountains, the Ciudad Perdida, Carnival de Barranquilla and plenty more alluring attractions. Colombia also offers a bustling nightlife with some late-night venues staying open until dawn.
