I read online that Bogota airport was chaos with many delayed and cancelled flights due to runway problems a month ago. The airport has put out a warning to try and avoid Bogota airport (until sometime in Dec). We are arriving at the airport a week from now. Can anyone give us an update?
I'll be returning to Colombia shortly and instead of using an old Nokia I want to buy a cheapish smart phone this time (in Australia). Perhaps the HTC 620.
Any reason why this unlocked phone won't work? Anyone had a good/bad experiences with this?
Thanks so much,
Wondering if anyone is in Colombia currently and could tell me the present weather situation
Looks rainy on websites but sooo hard to tell from here
Anyone who's there and could provide any insight into the weather right now would be much appreciated
My friend and I are flying into Colombia in January and because we can't enter the country without proof that we are leaving we are looking to book a bus ticket out of Colombia in advance. However, we am having trouble finding a companies that travel from Colombia to Ecuador or Peru. Does anyone have know companies that will do this trip? We are fairly flexible with location. We also do not have an exact departure date is so we were hoping to find a company with flexible departure dates.
Hi! My twin and I are going to spend a week (late December/early January) in Cartagena. We are looking for suggestions for hostels, restaurants, and things to do. We have also booked a hostel on Isla Grande for two nights so we can get to nice beaches. Does anyone know how much a boat ride to Isla Grande costs? How cheap can food be inside Cartagena? What is there to do that' is fun in Cartagena (both historical and non-historical)?
Hi all. We have a month in Colombia and are trying to decide on Cartagena or Bogota as a base to fly into and out. Weighing against Cartagena is that the direct flight prices have gone up in the last week whereas Bogota is still reasonable. Bogota would be better in terms of getting down to the Amazon but after that we wanted to focus on the Cartagena region.
Thoughts? Advice? Best way to travel around Colombia ie: bus or flights?
Me and my girlfriend is thinking about going to Columbia jungle trekking, we want to see some wildlife, can anyone tell me best place to go please? I've read about the lost city but i was thinking about other regions, I've heard amacayacu national park and Parque Nacional Natural Cahuinarí are excellent, opinions please :-)
Do they ever "check" your onward ticket? Can they even do that? (When flying with another company from a neighbouring country) ?
I am thinking about using an old one and changing the dates...
Just in case they want to see it.. Any info on this, the risks, are appreciated:)
Does anyone know the best and quickest route from Leticia to Iquitos?
All the information I've found is quite outdated !
So far it looks like I can get a slow boat for 3 days *which I don't want to do, or a fast boat but I cant find any information out on when or where this runs. Likewise I've seen people write about flights but nothing comes up when I search both destinations. Any help welcome!!
Also does anyone have a recommendation for a good tour operator for the Amazon in Iquitos?
