Climbing wise If you visit Colombia there are 4 places you should consider :

1. Suesca (where it all started in Colombia)... About 400 routes... sport, trad, crack, face, 1 pitch to 4 pitches... beautiful sand stone. 50 minutes away from Bogotá. There is another mainly sport crags nearby Valle de los Halcones (20-30 minutes away).

2. Mesa de los Santos (aka. La Mojarra). Surreal location above a beautiful valley. 150 mainly sport routes, red sandstone... Near Bucaramanga.

3. Machetá - Near Bogotá smaller sport crag.

4. El Cocuy. Alpine climbing. Peaks rising above 16500 feet, allowing for high altitude big walls and mountaineering.
