Caribbean Region Discover both the vibrancy and relaxation of the nation

Article - July 29, 2011
The Caribbean region of Colombia is on the northern coast, next to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and by the Andes mountain range, making for some of the most unique landscapes
in the world
WELL-PRESERVED CARTAGENA DE INDIAS WAS DECLARED A UNESCO HERITAGE SITE IN 1984
The Caribbean region’s 1,000-mile coastline, pristine waters, Caribbean rhythms, and tropical ambience create an ideal location for comfort and relaxation. Not only does the natural beauty of the Caribbean offer tranquility and hospitality, but also a bustling nightlife, daytime activities, folklore and history.

COLOMBIA’S COLONIAL CHARACTER IS PRESERVED VERY WELL IN CITIES LIKE MOMPOX OR CARTAGENA DE INDIAS
Baranquilla, the most densely populated city in the region, is famous for its annual Carnival, which is among the biggest worldwide, coming only second to the carnival in Rio de Janeiro. With its advanced infrastructure and developed industry, Baranquilla is also very multicultural, as early settlers included groups of Arabs, Jews, Germans, Italians, British, and Asians. This is also reflected in the local food, which is as diverse as its people.

For a more tranquil setting, visit Capurgana for its seafood and amazing jungle landscapes next to the sea. Even more secluded is Cabo de la Vela, a desert beauty with quiet beaches, inhabited by the indigenous Wayuu people.
The city of Cartagena de Indias, with its colorful walls and colonial architecture, was declared a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1984 and has hosted events like the International Film Festival and the International Music Festival, to name but a couple. Famous author Gabriel Garcia Marquez also spends much of his time in this city, and there are many tours to familiarize yourself with some of the places that have inspired his writing.
