WHY SHOOT THERE
Shoot the Andes snowy mountains, the Caribbean Sea, the beautiful tropical beaches, and the tropical forest. And get it all in one place! Each of Colombia’s regions features cold, cool and hot climates and is reachable in only 2-3 hours travel, from high mountains over 3.000 meters (9 800 feet) above sea level to warm weather regions at sea level, except in the Amazon region where the entire territory is one huge tropical jungle.
WHEN TO GO
As Colombia is right in the Equator line, there is no need to wait for seasons to come and go. All climates can be found 365 days a year, being most of them warm and pleasant.
Colombia is directly linked to major North American and European cities with daily flights, and principal airlines including American Airlines, Iberia, Air France and Lufthansa fly directly to Bogotá airport (El Dorado).
WHAT TO EAT & DRINK
The Colombian cuisine offers a great variety of dishes, which vary by region in preparation and ingredients, and incorporate the traditions of Spanish, Mestizo and Afro cultures. Some of the most common ingredients are cereals (rice and maize), tubers (potato and cassava), varieties of legumes (beans), beef, chicken, pork, goat and guinea pig meat, fish and seafood, and also a variety of tropical fruits such as mango, bananas, papaya, guava, pineapple, lulo and passion fruit. Colombia does not have a national dish, although stew and corn bread in its various forms are very recognized. Among the most representative regional dishes are the ajiaco, the bandeja paisa, the mote de queso, the lechona, the mamona, the mute, tamales and fish, especially in coastal regions. Some typical Colombian beverages are sugar water, Raspao, corozo juice, tamarind refreshment, rum and of course, coffee.
