One of the world’s most biologically diverse countries, Colombia contains myriad ecosystems that include rainforest-covered mountains, marshes, plains, cliffs, jungles, Caribbean and Pacific coastline, and more. Approximately 58 percent of the country is covered by natural forest, including 154,440 square miles of the Amazon Basin, which produces 15 percent of the world’s oxygen and is home to 10 percent of the world’s biodiversity. 

Almost half of all plant species in the world can be found here, plus more than 1,821 species of birds, 623 species of amphibians, 467 species of mammals, 518 species of reptiles and 3,200 species of fish.

Colombia is also very rich in culture, comprising the second largest population of people in South America. From the dynamic capital city of Bogotá to the rugged terrain of the Andes Mountains, visitors can explore the country’s rich biodiversity and exuberant culture.
