1. It’s just a massive jungle.
Sure, Colombia has the Amazon, the most biodiverse jungle on Earth. But Colombia is also so much more than that. Just look at Los Llanos. This grassland plain covers vast expanses of land in eastern Colombia and is home to rope-swinging cowboys who herd cattle, tell mysterious folk stories, and do other cool cowboy stuff.
Then there’s Guajira Desert in the northeast of the country. Colombia even has snow. Los Nevados National Park, in the center of the Colombian Andes, has the largest relief of any coastal mountains in the world, with full on alpine peaks and ice-climbing opportunities. There’s hot springs, marble caves, multi-colored rivers, two oceans, islands, a 2000-meter-deep canyon, mud volcanoes, modernized cities…I guess one could say that Colombia is quite a diverse “jungle.”
