Colombia is located in South America at the juncture of Central and South America. Geographically Colombia is approximately four times the size of Nevada. There is a large variety in temperature and precipitation in the country due to differences in elevation. At sea level it is quite hot, but the mountains can be snow covered. Colombia is also in the ‘ring of fire’ and experiences earthquakes regularly.


The capital of Colombia is Bogota which is the center of commerce and largest city.
