Colombia percolates with intrigue. This equatorial nation at the top of South America serves up an enticing brew of untamed wildlands, artisan coffee culture and enchanting colonial cities. Pride is palpable in the resilience of people and places that have risen out of decades-long conflict to abide in harmony. World Heritage Sites abound, recognizing Colombia's rich natural and cultural treasures. And rare wildlife thrives, including New World primates like the critically endangered cotton-top tamarin, which find promise in local conservation initiatives. Encompassing a vast range of habitats, Colombia spans from sun-drenched Caribbean coast to snowcapped Andean volcanoes, their slopes draped in dense rain forest. Replete with ruins of mysterious ancient civilizations, Colombia is a refuge for 19% of the world’s bird species, lush mountains that harbor tremendous biodiversity, and more than 210,000 square miles of tropical grasslands where local cowboys called llaneros still ride barefoot over the plains.
