I'm not sure. I can't see the whole plant. Do you know if it has pseudobulbs, or if the leaf comes off a long stem?

If it has pseudobulbs I would wonder about one of the New World Bulbophyllums, which are hardly in cultivation.

Maxillaria. Beautiful!
Bulbo would not be likely in Colombia.

There are Bulbophyllums throughout the Americas, but we don't hear about them much.

True, but typically not so spectacular. That one is classic Maxillaria.

Definitely Maxillaria sp.

New World Bulbophyllums typically do not look like this.

It would be impossible to tell from a photograph, but if you were there in person, another way to tell is if the lip is hinged or not. Many Bulbophyllums have hinged lips that bob when touched. Maxilliarias have fixed lips that do not bob when touched.
