Colombia is a country located in the northwest side of South America, bordered to the northwest by Panama; to the east by Venezuela and Brazil; to the south by Ecuador and Peru, also shares maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Haiti.

The Spanish arrived in 1499 and initiated a period of colonization creating the Viceroyalty of New Granada, with its capital Bogotá. The Independence from Spain was fought and won in 1819, but by 1830 “The Grand Colombia Project” collapsed with the secession of Venezuela and Ecuador.
