Colombia is a true mosaic of populations and this diversity is expressed through the country’s culture, folklore and art; as Indigenous, Spanish and African influences have combined to create astonishing fusions, particularly in crafts, sculpture and music.
Antioquia is a testimony of this diversity, from its distinctive colonial Pueblos to its coffee and Banana Plantations. But also by its Andean culture, such as the muleteers or musicians that greatly influenced the myths of the region.
In Antioquia, the summers and the winters are short and warm. However the air is humid and overcasts year round. We recommend visiting Antioquia, for hot-weather activities, from mid-December to mid-March.
