Tourism in Colombia Booming

Even in the current harsh economical climate around the world, the tourism industry in Colombia is booming! 

According to the Colombian minister of trade, Mr. Luis Guillermo Plata (what a name for a trade minister: plata is slang for money in Spanish!) reports that 436,833 foreigners entered the country in the first three months of 2009, which is up 14.5% from the same period in 2008.

That makes tourism the third biggest industry of Colombia after dr.... noooo!... after coal and oil!

It's interesting to note that 25% of the tourists entered Colombia on board of one of the many cruise ships.
