Colombia is a gorgeous country that has been working more and more on building its tourism industry. Specifically, according to Colombia Reports, Trade Minister Maria Lorena Gutierrez has been working with smaller towns and villages who are seeking certification for "sustainable tourism." The travel board believes that certification will help tourists and communities connect in positive ways, that also have less potential negative impact on the environment.

Gutierrez says the certification process is intended to “generate wealth, productivity and opportunities for all, while environmentally, economically and socially sound.” There were six towns with this official certification, but this week, the number doubled. There are now twelve new destinations on the list.
