Social Conventions

In the capital Bogotá, North American influences have begun to emerge while the rest of the country has been heavily impacted by Spanish culture.  Colombians don’t tend to follow strict time frames and being on time isn’t a big deal.  Casual clothing is acceptable in most settings except for formal dining and social occasions.

 

Language

In Colombia, the official language is Spanish, however there are more than eighty other languages and dialects found throughout the country as a result of the various indigenous populations in the nation. 

 

Religion

The majority of the population of Colombia (90%) follow the Roman Catholic faith, but there are also Protestant and Jewish minorities.
