Today the annual Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) opens its doors for the first time in Medellín. Already known as an uprising international hub a wave of entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, business and startup owners from over 160 countries will populate Colombia’s second largest and 2012 world’s most innovative city to explore „new ways helping new founders start and scale new ventures around the world“.
A modern 2016 perspective from a Colombian woman (25) who loves her country and her German partner (32) who fell in love with it.
Colombia is huge, beautiful, and the most bio-diverse country in the world per square km. It’s incredible in its endless opportunities to enjoy your travels. Life happens outside here. Fans of archaeology and historic facts will be delighted by Tierradentro featuring pre-Columbian culture, the ruins of the Lost City and San Agustín archaeological sites. In present times, local farmers from the campo are always happy to invite you to live with them and learn to grow coffee or cacao, like our invitation for people from Slovenia. The calm Caribbean and wilder Pacific ignite the wish for adventure on a boat, beach, diving, snorkeling or just lazily getting tainted to swim as a refreshment after.
Why not have your first Salsa class and enjoy the famous nightlife while you discover its delicious food? You can use the travel tips in our upcoming Colombia Travel Guide 2016 with inspirations for your travel year 2016 and places you haven’t heard of.
Colombia is a country that has a lot to offer. It is so big and diverse that you need to visit it more than one time in your life to really “see it all”.
It is a country that deserves being recognized in the world for something different than drugs and violence. These images stayed in people’s minds and tourism plays an important role in changing the paradigms and stereotypes people have about Colombia.
We want people coming as travelers and leaving as ambassadors of Colombia.
