Much like neighboring Panama, Colombia is home to a fascinating mix of cultures and wildlife. The country has more plant and animal species per square mile than any other country in the world – over 130,000 endemic plants and 1,900 species of bird – and both coastlines (Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea) are rich in coral reefs and marine life. Sports enthusiasts are catered for with climbing, paragliding, fishing, diving and windsurfing, and for the culture vultures Colombia also boasts historic colonial and six sites with UNESCO World Heritage status.
