Colombia — is this South America’s most beautiful country? Well, I haven’t travelled extensively in S.A., but I’m certain Colombia is in the running. I relished 10 days on the country’s Pacific Coast, Bahia Solano region, hopping from eco-lodge to eco-lodge via rough-and-tumble boat ride in an attempt to experience everything the region has to offer.

See what I discovered with Part Two of my Colombia Travel Photo Essay:

Wow, it looks incredible. I really wish I’d spent more time in Colombia. Need to go back already!

Thanks! I was with a local “expert” at the time, and she said it was more than likely natural causes. No “foul play” suspected.
