It’s quite uncommon to come across countries that can boast a cultural heritage as wide and diverse as Colombia’s, where indigenous communities that have for centuries protected this territory came together with those of European and African descent. From the depths of the mystic Amazon all the way to the waves that break on the foothills of the imposing Sierra Nevada, this great encounter has resulted in countless expressions and experiences that reflect this enormous richness and that are waiting to be shared with a world willing to learn, grow and transcend alongside them.
