Colombia is a country which is located in northwestern South America bordered to the east by Venezuela and to the north by the Caribbean Sea. Colombia is very safe for travelers with lot's to discover. The beauty and charm of this country may astonish you.
In many areas of Colombia, it is common to eat bunuelos (deep fried corn flour balls with cheese in the dough) and arepas (thick corn tortillas, often made with cheese and served with butter), both are delicious!
For lunch, especially on Sundays, you should try a sancocho de gallina (rich chicken soup, served with part of the chicken itself, rice and vegetables/salad). Sancocho is widespread throughout the country, with countless regional variants. On the coast it features fish, and is highly recommended.
Colombian coffee is considered to be the richest coffee in the world. Called "tinto", it's served freshly-brewed to every house guest or office visitor as a common courtesy.
The water is drinkable straight from the tap in most of the major cities, but be prepared to buy some bottles if you go to the countryside.
There is also a variety of rum beverages, like "Ron Santa Fe" (also from Cundinamarca), "Ron Medellin Anejo" (also from Antioquia), "Ron Viejo de Caldas" (also from Caldas) among others.
