Colombia is located in the northern region of South America, bordering the Pacific Ocean in the west, Panama to the Northeast, Caribbean Sea to the Northwest, Venezuela directly to the east, Brazil in the southeast, and Peru and Ecuador in the south. Many towns were established in the early 1600s when the Spaniards began to settle in Colombia. Because of this, many cities in Colombia today bear witness to Spanish culture. Colombia won its independence in the early 19th century, and is now known as the Republic of Colombia.

Current peoples of the Americas are the combination, in varying proportions, of four elements: the Indians, these first; colonizers ; Africans landed by settlers as slaves; European and Asian immigrants arrived in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Over generations, the interbreeding has partly blurred the distinctions between these four elements. In contrast, the "cultural model" (at large) imposed by the colonizers remained dominant throughout.

Each of the Latin America countries shared a common language with the exception of some countries such as Brazil. This language that we shared all the Latinos is called Spanish. Even though, we all have this common language, if we watch deeply, it has slight and sometimes huge differences.

Most of the Central American countries have this notable distinction in comparison of Colombian dialect.

The story of the creation of man, animals, and the universe is one that is unique to each culture and group of people. Though American Indians are often lumped into one category, there were in fact many different and unique cultures and communities within this category.

The Caribbean is a place where most of the countries share the history. It is a history that is deeply embedded with loss and struggle. Over the course of history, the Caribbean has been through a lot of stages from slavery, colonialism come right down to independence and post-independence. With slavery, the blacks were introduced, then we have the Europeans and of course the Indians came with the indenture ship program. Since the Caribbean has such a diverse array of cultures and ethnic groups, it is expected that these groups will leave their own impact on the society as a whole.
In every culture there are artifacts that serve the same purpose, but they have different meanings because of their history. Baskets, weapons, bowls and various other artifacts are good examples of this. Costa Rica is a small country located in Central America. It was a peaceful place until the Spanish arrived around 1522 and started colonizing it (my trans.; Costa Rica Embassy).
