"As a testament to that fun loving nature, Colombians celebrate around 200 festivals annually, most notable of which are the Carnaval de Blancos y Negros held every January, the Holy Week celebrations, the Feria de las Flores every August and the Carnaval de Barranquilla held in February or March. Tourists can also delight themselves in visiting national parks like the Parque Nacional Tayrona, and the Parque Nacional Los Nevados, archaeological sites like San Agustin and the Zipaquira Salt Cathedral."
