2 weeks in Colombia in June

Hi

Me and a friend, not seasoned backpackers but been around, are planning on travelling to Colombia for the last 2 weeks of June. Always wanted to experience Colombia for culture/people/weather!

I've heard June isn't the best time weather wise but no option here.

We're after great fun (2 25 year old men), parties, experiencing the culture, meeting locals!!, as much sun as we can and generally to enjoy as much of Colombia as we can in 2 weeks!

So far we're looking mainly at going Medellin an…

Colombia next week

hi all - I decided last minute to take a trip out of the United States and Colombia seems like a great place.

I've been researching places from Bogota to Medellin to Cartagena. It's been a bit overwhelming. I speak no Spanish and am not looking for a resort type place. I'd love to spend 10 days enjoying the culture, food and nightlife (not too crazy). Thought it was worth flying somewhere (Bogota or Medellin) and then going on a local air carrier to the cost eventually.

Safety is a big…

Hi all, myself and my girlfriend are going to be in Barranquilla for the carnival from 14/02/2015 --> 17/02/2015 and we were wondering if there was anyone out there that was looking to share the cost of an apartment?

If anyone's…

Sail Cartagena to Panama pre-book online or just show up?

Hey Travellers,

I'm travelling with a friend and we want to do a sailing trip from Cartagena to Panama, I have been looking on-line and I am not sure if I should just book one now. I would rather book over there but I'd hate to miss out all together. I will be there mid-March do these things tend to book out early?

Cheers

Bus From Barranquilla to Cartagena

HI all ,
I am flying into Barranquilla at 11pm, and would like to go to Cartagena from there - is it better to stay the one night in Barranquilla, or arrive Cartagena super late ?
Also - would you recommend staying in a hotel nearer to the airport and go to the bus terminal in the a.m., or conversely get a hotel for the night near the bus terminal ? I'm usually a budget traveler but don't mind paying $80 US the night for decent/convenient 1st night....
I am a female travelling solo, which may…

PNN El Cocuy Trekking Partners Jan 21- 30 / 2015

44 y/o Canadian traveling in South America looking for others interested in joining up for trekking in PNN Cocuy.

My intention is to try and do a number of day hikes from the various haciendas/cabanas/posadas but also very interested in joining like minded individuals in organizing and attempting to do the six day circuit sans official approval. Apparently it's not particularly well monitored yet. I have trekking experience in Canada, USA, Laos, Burma, Peru ( Cañon del Colca and Inca Trail),…
