COLOMBIA

Colombia, officially the Republic of Colombia, is a unitary, constitutional republic comprising thirty-two departments. It is located in northwestern South America, bordered to the northwest by Panama; to the north by the Caribbean Sea; to the east by Venezuela and Brazil; to the south by Ecuador and Peru; and to the west by the Pacific Ocean.

Pick a climate, and its yours - if you find the light jacket weather of Bogota cold, drive an hour down through the mountains and sunbathe next to the pool of your rented hacienda. If you dont want to sit still, head off into the Amazon or any of the countrys other many inland jungles, snow-capped volcanoes, rocky deserts, endless plains, lush valleys, coffee plantations, alpine lakes, deserted beaches.

There is no ideal season for travelling to Colombia. It is hot all year round by the sea. Everything depends on the geographical area and the altitude.
