In Colombia exist a broad diversity among genes, traditions and cultures and each one comes with it's own charm and personality.
The guajiros are mostly represented by the indigenous particularly the ones from an ethnic group called Wayuú. They don't have political boundaries so they share freely territory and culture with Venezuelans as well. Are pretty much calm people but when they get mad about something you better run! I'm serious just run! Guajiros are very protective of their culture, the nature around them and traditions, they are considered by the rest of colombians as a genetical and cultural treasure. They don't like pictures because they believe that will steal their soul, but there are always exceptions!
Known by their happy relax and easy going personalities, they love to speak and are very fast to do so! Lovers of the music, Ron and parties. The most known costeñas in the world are Sofía Vergara and Shakira, lovely ladies!!!
Their origin is from the departments of Barranquilla, Cartagena de Indias, Santa Marta, Valledupar, Montería, Sincelejo y Rioacha.
They belong to the Colombian caribbean in the Archipielago de San Andrés y Providencia, as the Chocoanos their main population is afrodescendent and the food is particularly delicious. The colombians born in there are also considered a genetical and cultural treasure same as the nature around, that's why in order to visitors to get in, even if they are colombians from other part of the country is a must to show a return ticket to avoid people staying there and risk the economics and protect the environment there.
One of the most loud to speak as the costeños but with a different style, they may come across as rude to you and kind of agressive but believe me, this people have a strong sense of cooperativity, fidelity and honesty in their words especially in business.
Among colombians are strongly identified as the most smart business oriented people, is believed that they could convince anyone to buy anything. Extremely regionalist and loving of their community, They have the most organized city of Colombia and the most innovative city in the world which is Medellin according to the Wall Street Journal and Citigroup. Wherever they work as farmers or in offices they conserve pretty good manners and are willing to help without expecting nothing in exchange. You see their love for their region in how clean they keep it, in the knowledgment that they have in anything that they do and in their will to help people who needs it. They love the long and funny conversations and drink Aguardiente.
I can´t avoid to be personal in my opinion about them because I was living alone in Medellin and my family lives in Venezuela and there was a time i got extremely sick that i literally couldn't stand up from my bed, and between my neighbours and friends came to my place, walked my dog, brought me medicine, cooked me and even helped me to clean, and without expecting anything in exchange! That´s why my heart has one of the most special spots for the paisas.
The chocoanos are happy people, lovers of music, excellent dancers and cookers. Choco is considered a little Africa in Colombia hence most population is afrodescendent. Easy going and loving people with a strong sense of community. Wherever a chocoano is inside of Colombia they are mostly the soul of the party for their positive spirit and amazing friendships.
They have an amazing music group that i totally love called Choquibtown you should listen them!!!
Kind and conservative colombians, count with an amazing landscape surrounded by mountains, has a significant amount of population dedicated to farming activities like roses crops. And love to work in their free time as nature guides and teach visitors about the importance of conserve the environment.The also have a well known indigeneous group called the Muiscas.
Are the ones that belongs to the capital of Colombia, Bogotá. Conservative people, it takes a little bit longer to become friend of one hence is the capital, you could see all types of colombians and people from other countries visiting constantly so people could be cold when you talk to them at first but give them a type and are very fun and good friends!!!.
They are the cowboys of Colombia and share same culture with Venezuelans. They love to wake up early in the morning around 5am to drink a coffee without sugar and work until the day ends. The horse is their dearest friend. Llaneros are more developed spiritually among colombians and don't get stressed by anything. If they are rich or poor? You'll never know cause they are not interested to show what they have just enjoy what they are and also appreciate people in the same way.
Opitas are from Tolima and Huila, are considered kind and honest also the most brave and warriors among colombians, don't start a fight with them cause they don't feel scared of anything.
The vallunos are happy people and also amazing dancers, in Cali you will find the best salsa dancers in the world, literally they are always the best or on the top for international salsa championship for their fast feet movement.
Another conservative region of Colombia with humble manners. Also with cold weather and beautiful mountains as a landscape.
The predominant are the indigenous and is also touristic for those who want to live the adventure of drinking Ayahuasca. The amazonicos are colombians but also share the culture with peruvians and ecuadorians. Kind and calm people with wise thoughts.
!Que viva Colombia¡
