    Cartagena de Indias

    The prettiest city of the Caribbean

    It was "The queen of the Indies" and today is the most fascinating baroque city of Colombia. Proudly sitting on its coral throne, Cartagena has kept its majestic architecture which still reminds the Eldorado myth and the galleons' treasure-ship full of gold.

    Listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO for its cultural interest in preservation, Cartagena is an impressive monument. Taking time to visit it, is important, by walk or by carriage.

    A cultural discovery added to a captivating charm of wild island, the splendor ocean floor and idleness on the beaches.

    Providence Island

    From the sky, at about two hours by plane from Cartagena de Indias, Providence waves on the blue Caribbean.

    Small, emerald color, covered with mountains, abandonned...

    No souls on the unique road which is cercling the island in seventeen kilometers.

    Immaculated beaches and quiet houses are covered by almond trees and acacia flowers.

    The forgotten gods of San Agustin

    Divinities with threatening faces, warriors armed with clubs, round eyes and jaguars' teeth of mythical heroes...

    Some three hundred enormous sculptures stand in the region of Saint Augustin, in the heart of the Andes, the province of El Huila.

    Classified in the World Heritage List of UNESCO, this vast park, the largest one of the precolumbian America, opens the door to an unknown civilization which would have bloomed between the 6th century B.C and 12th A.D.

    Amazonia, about garden...

    Just follow one of the thousand tributaries of the Amazon to meet a sweet perfume of a meandering river.

    A fisherbird flies away in a colored lightning.

    Gigantic lotus and thousand aquatic plants float in close order on the sideless lagoon.

    A caiman is dozing on a white sandbank.

    The jungle spreads whispers and shouts, rustlings, heavy flights, brief lappings, flutterings and death moans.

    No smoke, no hatchet's sound, and no human presence.

    Malpelo Fauna and Flora Sanctuary

    Valle del Cauca Region

    Located some 506 km off the coast of Colombia, the site includes Malpelo island (350 ha) and the surrounding marine environment (857,150 ha). This vast marine park, the largest no-fishing zone in the Eastern Tropical Pacific, provides a critical habitat for internationally threatened marine species, and is a major source of nutrients resulting in large aggregations of marine biodiversity. It is in particular a ‘reservoir' for sharks, giant grouper and billfish and is one of the few places in the world where sightings of the short-nosed ragged-toothed shark, a deepwater shark, have been confirmed. Widely recognized as one of the top diving sites in the world, due to the presence of steep walls and caves of outstanding natural beauty, these deep waters support important populations of large predators and pelagic species (e.g. aggregations of over 200 hammerhead sharks and over 1,000 silky sharks, whale sharks and tuna have been recorded) in an undisturbed environment where they maintain natural behavioural patterns.

    Inscribed on the World Heritage List of UNESCO.
