Geographers have devised
different ways to divide Colombia into regions. It is most appropriate to
divide the country into four geographic regions: the Andean highlands,
consisting of the three Andean ranges and intervening valley lowlands; the
Caribbean lowlands coastal region; the Pacific lowlands coastal region,
separated from the Caribbean lowlands by swamps at the base of the Isthmus
of Panama; and eastern Colombia, the great plain that lies to the east of
the Andes Mountains.
