Map of Colombia

With dramatically beautiful rainforests, mountains and beaches, lovely cities and enchanting people, Colombia is among the world's most attractive and intoxicating destinations. Sadly, when Colombia is mentioned in international news, the subject is generally related to civil conflict, drugs, or poverty in the country. Indeed, Colombia for decades suffered a conflict whose root cause lied largely in the enormous social disparities.

However, the situation in Colombia has improved markedly in the last several years. There are still areas that are best avoided; however, if you refrain from traveling to these regions, you'll discover a Colombia that enchants and charms.
