Located primarily in the northwest of South America (with some territories in Central America), Colombia welcomes travellers with its Caribbean beaches, cobblestone towns and villages, enigmatic ancient civilisation and a diversity of landscapes.

Both visitors and those who stay long term in Colombia will have no shortage of things to do. Colombia’s rich culture and diverse natural landscape mean that expats will have a wide range of leisure activities to choose from.

Moving is stressful and requires good planning.
