I'm trying to plan my itinerary for Colombia in August and as I have a short amount of time- I want to go from Medellin to Salento on a Sunday. I have heard that Flota Occidental has a direct bus, but it's hard to find information on the website. Does anyone know if it runs on Sunday? Do you know the hours it runs by change? Thank you!
We'd love a few different perspectives on this so please answer if only in brief.
In a nutshell, my partner and I are torn and need to make a decision tonight (won't bore you with why).
We've read that the mosquitos are horrendous trekking to Ciudad Perdida in later October, it's putting us off doing it at all. We hate polluting our bodies with loads of medicines and this is the only region we're visiting on our Central/South America trip where malaria is prevalent. We are already getting…
I will be moving to Cartagena in October to work, and I would like to rent a studio, 1-bedroom apartment or small guest house for myself and my cat. I am looking for something inexpensive (around 300 dollars /month). I would prefer something close to the Centro Historico, or if that's not available for the price, in a nearby neighborhood. I speak fluent Spanish. Does anyone have suggestions?
I currently have and iPhone with ATT service in the US and will be moving to Colombia in September. What is the easiest and/or cheapest way to make the transition? Ideas about monthly cost?
I will need to get from Santa Marta to Medellin on August 21st and am wondering what you would recommend. My priority is safety, and I wonder if there is any concern with travelling once it is dark? Also, can anyone comment as to whether it is better to fly or take a bus?
Any info would be great!
We're planning on doing some rainforest trekking once as arrive in Leticia right at the start of August. Can anyone recommended any good tours that we can book beforehand for 2-3 days?
at the end of august i will fly to Colombia for 23 nights. It is my first trip to Colombia my fourth in latin america. I speak some spanish.
At the moment i am planning where to go.
My plan so far:
Day 1-3 Bogota
Day 4 Villa de Leyva
Day 5 Bogota
Day 6-8 Salento and the Coffee Area
Day 8-9 Cali
Day 10-11 Popayan
Day 12-13 San Agustin
Day 14-15 Neiva
I have some days left. Should i add some days for a destination? The bus rides between the destinations are about 5-7 hours…
I've overstayed my 90 day visa by 8 days and am trying to find out if I can pay the fine at the border when I leave, or if it has to be paid at the Migracion Colombia office? I'm finding it hard to find this information anywhere.
I am planning on travelling to Ecuador via bus - does anyone have any experience in paying an overstay fine at the border? Or will they tell me I need to go to the Migracion Colombia office?
