In the crossroads of the Americas lies a country designed for all sorts of adventure. Colombia's geography is so mind-blowingly diverse it's even hard to figure out where to start talking about it. Should it be at the world's oldest mountain formation, which towers imposingly over a lush, undisturbed rainforest? Or perhaps by coursing through one of our countless rivers in the same exhilarating way the adrenaline will through your veins? If you're a lover of surreal landscapes, we've no shortage of those, either – from mesmerizing colors and patterns scattered across stunning desserts, through the cloud forests that veil the tallest palm trees you've ever seen, to the chillingly-beautiful expanse of the paramos that are home to fascinating species and that lead the way to perpetually snow-capped mountains, every corner of our territory is guaranteed to take your breath away (and it won't be due to altitude sickness). We'd also be inclined to tell you all about the steep mountain face of the second-largest canyon in the world, or even the infinitely majestic plains that stretch beyond imagination, but we haven't even gotten to the myriad treasures hidden both along the beaches and underneath the waves in the two oceans that bathe Colombia's shores...

We could go on forever, but, truth is, we'd much rather not spoil the surprise
