2Whitey gave you the best advice... A couple of months and you should be able to come back to struggle with another 180 days...
If you get another type of visa, like a student visa, you may not even need to leave...
However, if you start adding up a lot of trips to Colombia, Migración Colombia may start asking you questions at the airport.

3I'm not sure you can apply for a change of visa while inside Colombia but anyway here's info on the student and other types of visa:

5Many countries have the 180 day limits for short term VOA visits such as tourist visas. Although not everyone enforces it to the letter of the law. I have personal experience with another country and know it isn't strictly enforced (many visits adding up to more than 180 days within a calendar year) but not with Colombia. I'd say this, if you exhausted your 180 days, leave and come back in right away your chance of getting caught is greater. Then again, Colombia may have the entry information cumputerized which will make bypassing the regulation not possible unless the immigration officer processing your visa gave you a pass.

6Just don't break any immigration laws or any laws in Colombia... You'll save yourself a lot of trouble, expense and agony... I am not sure if entry/exit information are cumputerized... but they certainly have them computerized, and many countries nowadays use e-passports.
