Take a Spanish course in Colombia and enjoy the country's combination of laid-back lifestyle, Caribbean beaches and tropical rainforests.
Colombia offers visitors both incredible landscapes and cultural and historical riches. The country contains seven UNESCO world heritage sights, including the Los Katíos National Park in the north-west, a nature wonderland filled with hills, forests and humid planes, Tierradentro in the south-west, an elaborate system of underground tombs with ancient human statues dating from the 6th to 10th centuries, and Santa Cruz de Mompox in the North, a historic colonial city. Throughout the country there are also various traditional festivals and markets where you can learn more about modern Colombian culture.
Colombia is a fantastic destination for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits with numerous opportunities to dive, climb, raft and trek. Here you can visit the Ciudad Perdida to trek through the jungle before you reach the ancient ruins or Tayrona or go whale-watching on the Pacific coast. Of course, with its idyllic beaches and relaxed way of life, Colombia is also a perfect place to relax in the sunshine and watch the world go by.
Colombians are known for their welcoming, open nature and will ensure that you have an enjoyable time during your stay. They speak Spanish very clearly and slower than in some other South American countries, so you should have no problems communicating.
