Platform: Google meet

Colombia is a very attractive country for birdwatchers, one of the reasons is that it has the largest number of bird species in the world over 1900, this because of the complexity of geography with branch of the Andes in three mountain ranges with their valleys. It is more important to the Caribbean region where we have a set of representative sites that make the region one of the most attractive in the country, from mountains such as the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (highest coastal mountain in the world and largest center of continental endemism), Guajira peninsula (driest area of Colombia, with most threatened country dry forests) and Tayrona National Park a lush rain forest with beautiful white sand beaches. Are all welcome to live emotions with unique and colorful birds, excellent guides to be told all the magic of this beautiful activity, as well as the culture and customs of the different communities of the Colombian Caribbean!
