      Colombia Info

      Colombia Yesterday

      Hi I am thinking of visiting Colombia soon ( first time visitor)  I have no real solid info about Colombia just bits of chit chat, most of it negative . I would like to have a clear perspective in order to help with my decision to visit there. I am wondering about accomodation ( not hotel) if there are homestays , volunteer vacations or any similar safe clean simple and quiet form of accomodation . Which city is considered the best to visit first and safe locations within the cities. I am interested in activities such as theatre , historical sites , cultural things  , language learning and natural things . I prefer staying where the airport is esaily accessible  or where there is safe easy and reliable transport to places of interest .

      Thank you very much .

      Early evening transport

      I plan on traveling from Pereira to Salento around 6:30pm towards my hostel. I called them because they offer a private driver service and I was told to use it would cost ~$45 USD. This seems absurdly expensive and I feel like I am being exploited since apparently the buses do not travel that late to Salento. Is there another way to reach Salento from Pereira at that hour?

      Thanks!

      Valle de Cocora

      by peacelovemusic Online Now Jun 25, 2009 at 9:39 PM

      I'm going to Pereira, Colombia for a couple of weeks with my boyfriend and am dying to go out and hike or see some ruins. Should we try to do a day trip to Valle de Cocora, or should we try to find somewhere to stay the night and make a couple of days out of it? Any idea as to what it might cost us to stay a night?

      And I'm assuming we're going to have to take a bus from Pereira to Salento, and then a jeep to Cocora? Any advice whatsoever would be greatly appreciated :-)
