Hello, I am going in the middle of July and doing Pasto, St. Agustin and Popayan. I will have time to do more and I would guess that Mocoa is still a mess. I am from New Orleans and certainly don´t want to be part of the problem though volunteering in some form is very appealing. But, could someone also give me an alternative place to visit in the area. I will have about two weeks from the Ecuadorean border. Thank you.
I've heard conflicting information about this, has anyone done it recently? I'd have thought all buses that go from Ipiales to Cali would stop there.
I will be in Colombia in July/August and really would like to see the Cerros de Mavecure. I am still considering if I should do an organized tour or be going there by myself, but thats not my question.
I have read that you can take a riverboat downstream from Villavicencio or San José del Guaviare to Puerto Inirida. That would take some extra days, but I think it is a more interesting route than by plane.
Has anyone taken one on these routes and/or can give me advice about the safety situation…
Dear thorn tree community,
First, for everyone who responds to posts here, you have my internal gratitude. "[Country] thorn tree" is my go-to search whenever I'm thinking of traveling to a new place.
Second, I'm taking my younger sister on a 10-day trip somewhere in August. Since we almost never get the opportunity to travel together any more, we're happy to splurge (we're also thinking of Norway, so anything in Colombia will be a steal, comparatively). Don't worry, I did more than my fair…
Do they allow battery powered things in the cabin? I will be flying viva colombia from Lima to Bogota. I do not want to pay extra for a bag, one small carry on bag only. What do they do about battery powered things, Lights, steri pens, gps?
NEXT ROAD TRIP to Guaviare-Colombia, border between the colombian plains and the amazons. if you like to join us in my car ,let me know. I still have 2 seats available!
Do you want to explore the Guaviare with us ?its located Just 8 hours by road from bogota. We will get to one of the most spectacular, unexplored and beautiful region of Colombia. Even very few people dared to visit because of the ignorance, its far distance and its armed past. The trip will be at the end of June, we will go in…
I am hoping to go to Colombia this Christmas with my family which includes 2 children age 7. I am not really sure on the best things and route to take especially on the beach side of things so I was wondering if anyone can offer any suggestions.
We were thinking of going to a Hacienda for 3 nights in the coffee zone, followed by 4 nights cartegena, 3 nights in sierra nevada. We were then looking at spending 5 days toward Tayrona but most of what I have read is that to get to any of the great…
I will be flying from Florida to Cusco, Peru with a 12-13 hour daytime layover (9am-10:15pm) in Bogota on a Saturday. I will be by myself and am female. My spanish is not super great, but I am working on it. I'm assuming my luggage will be checked through to Cusco, so I don't think I will have to worry about it, just my carry-on backpack.
I've seen several things that interest me, like the Gold museum, Monserrate as well as a walking tour of the city's graffiti. I also saw some bicycle tours…
I'll be in Cartagena for learning Spanish this Aug to Nov (4 months). I'm looking for a room for rent. I'm fine with sharing room. My budget is 300,000 COP - 400,000 COP. If you know a place or if you're looking for a roomate, please let me know.
Good morning everyone,
Have our itinerary around Colombia pretty organised at this stage but having a little trouble deciding how to spend our time in the north of the country. It basically comes down to having 4/5 nights and whether to do the Lost City trek or else spend more time in Tayrona, Minca and Santa Marta.
We do love trekking - the Inca Trail and Colca Canyon were previous holiday highlights but we're also a bit worried about the standard of comfort and hygiene on the Lost City Trek…
