What to do in Colombia's Coastline

One side to Colombia is draped along the Caribbean, where unknown islands and lush jungle create a stunning getaway. The other side is all about Pacific waves and humpback whales. In between you'll find Amazonian jungle and valleys of coffee plantations that roll for miles. Visit Colombia and you can explore a coastline as yet undisturbed by tourism, as yet altered from its pure, original promise.
