Colombia is the only South American country with both Atlantic and Pacific coastlines. Its enterprising people are famed for their music, footballers, fruit and coffee. The legendary Magdalena river runs vertically from the south, between two Andes mountain ranges towards the Caribbean sea. Islands near and far are visited by those seeking tranquil white sands. Famous cities such as Bogotá, Medellín and Cartagena are complemented by many smaller towns with charming colonial histories. Colombia has also developed its eco/agrotourism, where local guides share rural customs in their authentic context.
