Discover Colombia with Inside Colombia

If you plan a longer stay in South America, Colombia is your choice! The diversity of this country is reflected by its inhabitents. Colombians may be the kindest and most polite people in South America. The cordiality and openness of Colombian people make sure that every visitor will quickly feel at home. And Colombians know how to party and enjoy life! They love dance and music. Some even go dancing at lunch time! An internship, a university course or a Spanish course in Colombia gives you the opportunity to discover the hot Salsa- and Cumbia rhythms on the spot. Also the physical appereance is rather important in Colombia, home of many beauty queens. But Colombia is more than dance and tropical beauty. Big cities like Bogotá and Medellin host a lively alternative culture scene. There are constantly new exhibitions of young emerging artists and many small cinemas offer exciting programs. And they all get their audience – the educational level in Colombia is rather high. We invite you to discover Colombia with us. Inside Colombia organizes your unforgettable stay in the heart of Latin America.
