      Colombia Nov 17, 2014 at 2:39 PM

      Can anyone recommend a beach with calm water with a mid level or luxury hotel, not too developed, preferably white or golden sand? Looked at San Andres and Providentale(sorry about the spelling) but they seemed to be a hassle to get there.

    • Arriving @ Bogota midnight and leaving early morning

      Bogotá Jul 19, 2014 at 7:34 PM

      I was not thinking (clearly) when I made the booking but anyways, here it is:
      Arriving @ Bogota 11:25p.m. Next flight is @ 6a.m. So, essentially, I have 5 hrs to kill. My options are look for a place to get some rest within the airport OR nearby OR take a cab and drive around for 1-2 hrs before getting back to the airport.

      Can use some feedback for either option. Thanks …

      Bogotá Jun 16, 2014 at 12:11 PM


      So I have a friend who's going to Bogota in August 2014 (until December) for an exchange.
      I am seriously thinking of visiting her in September, but before, I would like to know what is worth visiting around.
      So according to you, what are the nice places to go to in Bogota? Or any other interesting city in Columbia in general?

      I would like to really discover the columbian culture and traditions, not just staying in the city. So please feel free to let me know if you have any good idea! Thank you all!

    • Getting $$ to family

      Cartagena May 12, 2014 at 9:25 AM

      My son is currently on a boat headed to Cartagena, Columbia from Panama. While checking online with his bank before leaving they informed him that their ATM card would not be useable in Columbia. That is his only source of money. He has just a little cash to get him through this week, then he wants me to wire him money, or send him his new debit card from here in Oregon. Anyone have any advice???? Everything I read about wiring money did not sound good, and stressed using it as a very last resort. I would sure appreciate any help or recommendations on this!

      Even a bit out of the city - if time permits.
