Compartir y disfrutar el encanto de Colombia

Costumbres y tradiciones en Colombia

Diversos climas y paisajes producen una enorme variedad cultural en Colombia, donde grupos étnicos, bailes, lenguas y eventos populares fuertemente arraigados reafirman la identidad del país. A esta oferta se suman museos y turismo comunitario, al igual que visitas a haciendas, parques y casas coloniales. De esta manera se percibe la verdadera atmósfera de muchos lugares.  

El encanto de la variedad

Colombia es una nación pluriétnica y diversa. Tenemos 84 pueblos indígenas, 60 lenguas nativas y población afrodescendiente. Además nos destacamos por nuestras cocinas tradicionales.

Tesoros de la humanidad

Colombia ha recibido 16 declaratorias de Patrimonio de la Humanidad de parte de la UNESCO. Ocho corresponden a lugares y otras ocho, a manifestaciones culturales de Patrimonio Inmaterial.

El sentir colombiano

Es posible percibir la esencia de la idiosincrasia colombiana de muchas maneras. Nuestra manera de ver la vida se refleja en la música autóctona; en museos sobre carnavales y tradiciones religiosas, entre otras cosas.
