Discover Colombia – one of five so-called “mega-diverse countries” in the world that exhibits extraordinarily high species diversity. Although the country (located between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea) accounts for less than one percent of the Earth’s surface, it ranks among the top countries in terms of number of endemic species. The country’s tropical rainforests have a well-documented biodiversity and the two oceans present a vast marine territory.
