Proexport’s Vice Presidency for Tourism makes itself present and seeks to promote and encourage voting for the Amazon to become even more admired and visited by foreigners.
Following an arduous voting process begun in January 2009, the Amazon was selected as one of 28 finalists and Colombia’s only candidate to the New 7 Wonders contest.
The announcement was made by Dr. Bernard Weber, Founder and President of the New 7 Wonders of Nature Foundation, which strives to preserve humanity’s heritage.

After the nomination of 440 participants from around the globe, the Amazon was selected, and the eyes of the whole world will turn towards this region that begins to compete to be considered one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

“It is worth filling oneself with pride and patriotic feelings and deciding to vote to turn a natural geographic site of our country into one of the most beautiful in the world.
By voting, we attract not only Colombians to get to know our treasures but the entire world to turn its gaze towards this country, which has hallucinating aspects to show; in this case, the imposing Department of Amazonas”, stated Nubia Stella Martínez, Proexport’s Vice President for Tourism.
We would like to invite everyone to vote for the Amazon through the website of the Seven Wonders of Nature Contest as one of the best tourist destinations at the international level.
