Why pick Colombia?

Colombia is one of the few countries in the world where it is possible to move from one environment to another very quickly. You could be surfing in the Caribbean sea in the morning and hiking up Jungle mountains in the afternoon. 

It is a country that is still undiscovered by mass tourism but that is starting to change so get there while it still has its natural beauty and charm.
