We spend a lot of time talking about the culture and beauty that is Bogotá, a city that is very near and dear to our hearts, but there is so much more to Colombia.
Did you know that, despite its small size, Colombia is home to 51,220 species of plants? In fact, it’s the second most bio-diverse country on the planet. There have been more than 1700 bird species recorded. And 50% of the world’s Emeralds come from Colombia. You can even go whale watching along Colombia’s Pacific coast.
And, a little fun pre-St. Valentine’s Day fact, residents of the United States buy more than 300 million Colombian roses every year!
