Colombia has the privilege of having three mountain ranges that cross the country from south to north, allowing the visitor to enjoy every type of climate: hot weather in the lowlands, warm, temperate climates in the middle range, and cold weather in the highlands and on moorland peaks and areas of perpetual snow.
In each region vegetation and fauna are different; for example, the lowlands produce rice, banana, sorghum, cotton and livestock is bred for the production of meat. The warm climate is conducive to fruit and coffee and meat production; in cold climates potatoes and vegetables are grown, and cattle are bred for milk production.
