I am flying into BAQ at noon and then I have 8 hours to kill before taking a bus from the bus terminal. Is there luggage storage at the terminal so I could go out in the city while waiting? Or if the main city is closer to the airport could I store it there and go look around and then come back to retrieve it? Also wondering if there's any buses going directly from airport-bus terminal or just best to take a taxi? I would like to explore some city highlights but concerned where to leave my…
I'll be heading from Necoclí to Cartagena and would love to see some of the Colombia in between. Anyone have any suggestions for places to go adventure in between?
I've seen other itineraries on this forum and they get really helpful feedback. I'd love to receive any comments/suggestions about my trip! Specifically, I'm wondering how much time I've giving to various cities - be it too much or too little. There's more in Colombia than anyone could do in 6 weeks so it's a balance between giving a place enough time to experience it vs missing something else.
Also - I can't decide between spending 10 days in Bogota vs. Medellin so any help there is…
Hi, I'm in Medellin at the moment. We're interested in natural places to swim, both hot and cold. Any good hot springs or cold rivers around? Also, I really enjoyed walking the Camino Real from Barichara in Santander, and I wonder if there's anything similar around here. Maybe to Santa Fe de Antiquioa? Anyone know?
Apologies for yet another itinerary post... But could some seasoned Colombian experts lend a thought?

Where would you say has the best diving on mainland Colombia? For marine life/visibility/cool underwater things? I will be around Cartagena/Santa Marta at the beginning of my trip and am thinking about heading to the Pacific coast (Nuqui). I think I can only allow for 2 days diving max with my budget so want to make sure I spend them in a good place!
If anyone has any recommendations for specific dive shops as well, that would be great. It's been a couple of years since my last dive so I'm…
Hey guys, just finished writing about Tayrona National Park - maybe you are interested in checking it out :)
25/02/2015 Tayrona National Park should ring a bell for a lot of people, forming one of the most spectacular coastlines in Colombia. About four months ago, I spent a few nights there and can finally present you my story wandering through the beaches, doing some great bouldering and exploring the “mini” lost city Pueblito :)
I was hoping someone on here could tell me how the weather is historically along the Caribbean coast of Colombia in July. I've read that it is the rainy season, but that doesn't tell me a whole lot in terms of what to expect, especially in a tropical environment. Does it mean it rains a little bit in the afternoon and is nice and sunny the rest of the day? Or does that mean dark clouds looming overhead at all times of the day?
Also, I considered visiting the San Blas Islands of…
I'll be making my way from Medellin to Paramillo National Park in a couple weeks, and can't seem to find any info on the internet about how to travel to and from Paramillo. Has anyone made this trip, or knows the usual way people head north from Medellin?
Can anyone help with current info on rates (and any additional charges) for buying dollars? Any recommended places? Or are there any ATMs that dispense dollars?
