    • Any experience with getting a Colombian visa /e-visa?

      Colombia May 19, 2015 at 1:39 PM

      I am traveling to Ecuador in July, and would love to spend a couple of weeks in Bogota on my way in or out, since it's where I am flying into anyway. However, I do need a visa for Colombia - and since I live in Macedonia, and don't have a Colombian embassy and/or consulate here, it seems like the easiest way to go for it would be to go for the e-visa.

      I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with going through the process? On the official website, it says that once the e-visa has been approved, one still has to get a stamp in their passport - either in the Visa and Immigration Office in Bogota, or in the nearest consulate. I have a couple of questions:

      • Does it make a difference whether I'd get the stamp in Colombia or in a consulate in a neighboring country?
      • Is getting the e-visa the same as getting a regular visa? Do I stand more chances in getting it if I actually go to the nearest embassy? (which, as it turns out, isn't close to my country at all, so e-visa would still be the best option for me)
      • Is getting a Colombian visa a fair possibility? I mean, if I have all the right documents etc, should I be worried about not getting it?

      Thank you in advance for your replies. Any extra info on this would be more than welcome :-)

      All the best,
      Nina

    • Divino-Nino

      Colombia Mar 28, 2015 at 1:09 PM

      Good day. Does anyone know where town of Divino Niño is? It is a small community about 1/2 an hour from Bogota. It doesn't seem to appear on any maps on the internet. Will be staying in Bogota for a few day's for travel to this community. I have been trying to find it's location to see where it is located.
      Just an FYI.
      There is also another city called Divino Niño that is located in the Huila region 12 kms outside of Pitalito, but that is not the town I am seeking the location and photo's of.

      thanks for anyone who knows anything about this town / community outside of Bogota.

I'll have a week to do this. Can anyone advise me the best place to do this, and is there any beaches that will have decent weather and be not too wet then?

      St, Joseph Day

      Colombia Feb 8, 2015 at 6:57 PM

      I will be visiting Colombia over St. Joseph day. Is that the type of holiday where hotels will book up quickly? Will a lot of places be closed? Are there usually events to be watched (I'll be in Cartagena or Santa Marta)? We don't have the holiday in the US, so I have no idea what type of holiday it is.

      Looking for travel from Houston IAH

      Isla de Providencia Feb 8, 2015 at 11:17 AM

      Found this island while tracking a friends towing vessel (Corbin Foss). Looks very laid back yet with great snorkeling potential. It appears that there are a few Hotels, the Miss Alma piquing my interest.

      I need to get there although and no sites seem to be really thourough. I'd think that Iah to Costa Rica to San Andres to Providencia might work but options are welcome. 

      Thinking of two weeks during the off season, perhaps March next year or Late August / Sept. this year.

      Any info from you folks is greatly appreciated!

      long term flat- vacation rental

      Barranquilla Jan 6, 2015 at 8:07 AM

      Hello,
      my boyfriend and me just came to Barranquilla where we will start to work - we are therefore looking for a long term flat (300.000 - max. 500.000 COP per month), best would be in the barrios 'Boston' or 'El Recreo' or somewhere around the direction Carrera 38 No 69 (thats where the company is).

      It would also be perfect to rent something cheaper than a hotel for 2 weeks from now in which we could find a long term flat.

      Thanks in advance for every recomendations!!
