A selection of photos from all of Colombia's 5 natural regions:

Please state what geographical region is represented by using the colours above.

I'll begin with 2 Andean landscapes and 1 Caribbean.

Chingaza National Park






Taroa, Guajira



Cabo de La Vela, Guajira



Sierra Nevada del Cocuy, Boyaca

So what do we think so far?

Not bad for a "tropical" country smack bang on the equator the size of Ontario or South Australia or Texas + New Mexico hey?

The reason Colombia has many climates is due to its mountainous terrain. About 1/4 of the country is mountainous between 1km and 6km high. This is also where 70% of the population lives to escape the humidity of the coastal and tropical forest regions. Colombia's 3 largest cities Bogota (8 million), Medellin (3 million) and Cali (2.5 million) are all in the Andes, then comes Barranquilla (2 million) and Cartagena (1 million) on the Caribbean coast.

A few facts you might not know.

1. Colombia has the highest coastal mountains in the world, meaning you can find pristine Caribbean beaches and snow capped mountains within a 40km radius (less than one end of Greater London to the other within the M25 ring road).

2. Colombia has the largest body of snow in northern South America.

3. Colombia administrates 1 tenth of the Caribbean Sea.
