COLOMBIA'S TOP REGIONS

Many experts consider Colombia to have six natural regions; these include the Amazon, Orinoquia, Pacific, Insular, Andes, and Caribbean. Being that the latter two (Andes and Caribbean) represent the country’s most important and centralized economic hubs—where regional representatives and business leaders gather to meet—these are where you’ll find the most tourism activities and points of interest to visit.

ANDEAN REGION

The Andes mountains are Colombia's most populated region, containing most of the country's urban centers. This region was home to one of the most important pre-Columbian indigenous settlements. Here, the Colombian Andes divide into three branches known as "cordilleras."

CARIBBEAN REGION

The Caribbean region is bathed by the Atlantic Ocean and separated into seven departments with relatively similar cultural identities influenced by the Caribbean Sea. This region's natural tourist attractions include the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, the Rosario Islands and San Bernardo coral reefs, and Tayrona National Park.

PACIFIC REGION

The Colombian Pacific is one of Colombia's most beautiful and rhythmical regions, hosting the biodiversity of the Choco rainforest, gorgeous seascapes like Nuqui, cultural centers like Cali, rich greenery like that of Nario, and the indigenous peoples of Cauca.

ORINOCO REGION

The Orinoco is often referred to as the Eastern Plains. It is 75% savanna and 25% forest. The Orinoco, Guaviare, and Arauca Rivers, as well as the Piedemonte llanero—the area where mountain ranges border the eastern plains—, define this region.

AMAZON REGION

Southern Colombia is home to the Amazon region, the country's most forested, isolated, and least populated region. It is also home to a piece of the world's most important and gorgeous rainforest, the Amazon, which is home to thousands of animal and botanical species.

INSULAR REGION

The islands that comprise Colombia's insular region are scattered across the two oceans that bathe its coastlines and are connected to the mainland by underwater platforms. The region's temperature is delightfully tropical, and its islands, such as San Andres, are popular tourist destinations, particularly for their coral reefs and seven-colored waters.

WHAT TO SEE IN COLOMBIA

The Caribbean Coast

Cartagena is one of the most popular tourist destinations on Colombia’s Caribbean Coast, let alone South America. The city’s history as a settlement that fought off countless pirate attacks throughout many centuries, and its colonial quarter, are a big part of its appeal.

The city’s proximity to the Magdelena River allows easy access to one of Colombia’s best-kept secrets: Mompox. This city’s architecture and conservation of its Historic Center led UNESCO to declare it a Historic and Cultural World Heritage Site in 1995. Another incredible destination along the Caribbean Coast is Tayrona National Park, one of South America’s most important archeological and natural sites.

ANDEAN REGION

Up in the highlands, the capital city of Bogota functions as an international and regional hub for finance, education, and much more. The nearby Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira is 600 feet (183 meters) below the ground.

Medellin has thrust itself into the limelight as a hub for technology and industry, and its year-round climate is very temperate and warm.

From Medellin, one can easily visit picturesque Guatape and its impressive Rock or head to the Quindio Department, home to the charming and historically significant Coffee Triangle.
