Colombia has an ideal profile for National Geographic due to its amazing nature and cultural aspects,” said Baker. “Colombia is one of the richest countries in terms of tourist attractions, which meet everyone’s needs and interests. From bird-watching to active adventures and culinary challenges, the country is prepared to receive both groups and independent travelers,” he added.
