Hello, I am thinking of spending about 3 months in Cartagena & would like to find apartment renters in need of a roommate. Any suggestions for craigslist-like websites for this purpose in Colombia would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!
I'm starting to organize a trip for about a dozen folks, myself included. We're looking to do a three-day weekend and are talking about renting our own private villa in the vicinity of Medellin. I have a few questions...
1) I've heard that most villas are within an hour or two of the city. What are the most popular areas for villas? What are the pros and cons of various options, e.g. fun activities to do in each area? (Logistically, I imagine being closer to the city would be helpful.)
Our tickets are bought, our itinerary is planned. It is only now that we are looking at the Travel Advisory. Our itinerary is, roughly:
- 3 days in Bogota
- 2 - 3 days in Villages on the way to San Augustin
- 2 days in San Augustin
- 4 days in Coffee Region
- 3 days in Medellin
- 3 days in Cartagena
- 3 days in Capurgana
We have backpacked all over the globe. Recently Indonesia, Ecuador, Israel, Jordan, Thailand.
The Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development advises…
Hello beautiful travelling people:
Would anyone know how we can get information on boats going to and from Acandi - Capurgana? Not easy to find! Thank you thank you...

We read the Lonely Planet and googled sooo much! But cannnot find anything. There must be a nice beach somewhere?
We read about Santa Marta and understand it's not a great destination in itself, but it's a good starting…
I am planning a 5 day trek in PNN Los Nevados for this December. Everyone involved is an experienced and fully equipped backpacker. With the exception of the ascent of Nevada de Tolima, we plan to do the trek without guides.
The information available on PNN Los Nevados is fragmentary and often dated. I've pieced together a route I believe will work. I've listed our planned route below. There is good information available on the route from Valle de Cocora to Nevada de Tolima, but I have not been…
Can someone recommend a restaurant in Bogota/Chapinero for Christmas dinner in the early evening on Christmas Day. We fly in at 1am on the 25th so not much time to check ourselves on the day, also I'm aware that maybe not a lot of places will be open on the 25th. Money is not an object, I want to book somewhere very very nice for a special reason. I have looked at "best restaurant" lists/websites and see the likes of "Harry Sasson" and "Criterion" and happy to pay that kind of money but…
I noticed that Bogota is more expensive than Medellin. I have been told that Cartagena is more expensive than Medellin. What about barranquilla? Is it as expensive as Cartagena? Santa Marta? ANybody know what to expect price wise compared to other areas? Any favorite places on the coast?
I'm planing to go in end of January to Colombia for 3 weeks (23 full days).
I'm a guy 27 years old, solo traveler.
I'm not a fan of big cities and I really prefer to be on small colonial villages and see nature, animals and beaches. This is why my plan is not focused on Bogota or Medellin that usually recommended.
I would appreciate your comments on my plan:
Day 01 - Arrive Bogota at 20:00
Day 02 - Morning bus to Villa de Leyva + half day in Villa de Leyva
Day 03 - Villa de Leyva
