Colombia Travel Insurance
Colombia is the land of magical realism. The home of Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez, this South American nation’s contrasting landscape indeed inspires magic no matter which direction you take. It is the land of dense Amazon jungles, the mighty Andes, beautiful Pacific and Caribbean coastlines, mythical archeological and cultural ruins, and colonial landmarks. Situated in the northwest of the massive South American peninsula, it shares its borders with Peru and Ecuador (south), Brazil and Venezuela (east), and Panama (northwest). The majority of Colombians can be found living mainly in the mountainous inland. Spanish is the official language and the capital of Colombia is Bogotá, a high-altitude city in the northern Andes range.
While its Caribbean coastline is a perfect beach destination offering pristine sandy stretches, head to Colombia’s Pacific coast to watch awesome humpback whales. Old Providence, a Caribbean island territory of Colombia, is popular among scuba divers for its coral reef. Visit Palacio de la Inquisición (The Palace of the Inquisition), one of the finest colonial buildings in Colombia. A museum now, it displays collections from the notorious Inquisition period and pre-Columbian artifacts. Colombia’s high-altitude terrain is a great place for trekkers. Choose from a jungle walk through Ciudad Perdida to reach the old ruins of the Tayrona civilization, or climb to higher altitudes in the Parque Nacional Natural El Cocuy to reach the summits of Andes peaks. Fascinating ruins wait at San Agustín, the site of over 500 life-sized ancient statues, and Tierradentro, home to mystical underground tombs. For visas, apply in person at the Colombian Embassy in New Delhi.
