Live the sabrosura, the flavor, the vibe, the motion of Colombia's capital when you study abroad in Bogotá. From world famous coffee to the cumbia dance, from modern skyscrapers to Spanish colonial architecture, Bogotá is a dynamic blend of the historical and the new. Take in a beautiful view of the city from the famous Monserrate cathedral. View Colombian painter Fernando Botero's works in person, at his museum in the historic Candelaria neighborhood. While studying abroad in Bogotá, attend one of the city's many art fairs, fashion weeks, and festivals or spend a night out on the town with new friends. A thriving economic center of about 8 million people, Bogotá sits at the helm of Colombia's revival and transformation.
With the second most bio-diverse country in the world, studying abroad in Colombia gives you the chance to explore a wide range of spectacular landscapes. From where the Taroa Sand Dunes meet the azure Caribbean in Guajira to where the Amazonian rainforest hits the Andes and the Putumayo River, you’ll find miles and miles of unspoiled wilderness waiting for you to enjoy. Take a dip in the Laguna Negra, a blackwater lake in Guaviare, and hike through the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains to find the Ciudad Perdida, the ruins of an ancient city older than Machu Pichu. Visit the lush Cocora Valley to see the tallest palm trees in the world or make your way to the Caño Cristales, a river that turns red, yellow, green, blue, and black from July to November. When you study abroad in Colombia, you’ll see why it’s rapidly becoming a popular destination for adventure tourists and nature aficionados. Spend a sunny afternoon whale watching off the Pacific coast, as Colombia’s humpback visitors breach out of the sea. Go sailing in Santa Marta or scuba diving off San Andres Island in Colombia’s Caribbean waters. Swim with the sting rays, horseback ride on the beach, go white water rafting in San Gil or surfing in Punta Sur. Climb the 26-foot tall waterfall El Chorro on ropes and rappel your way back down. Enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot springs near Nuquí. However you like to experience nature, it’s possible in Colombia.
Ahmad is originally from Cairo, Egypt, where he lived for 22 years. His first foray into study abroad came when he lived in the U.S. as an exchange student during his senior year of high school. That experience inspired him to work in international education, where he has built his career over the past decade. After graduating with a BA in International Relations from the American University in Cairo, Ahmad immigrated to the U.S. in 2001, where he pursued his graduate studies at DePaul University and studied abroad in The Netherlands as part of the Summer Institute on Sexuality, Culture, and Society.
