Do I need a visa to travel to Colombia?NO! :) The Colombian visa process is easy to navigate, especially for Americans. If you’re traveling to Colombia as an American tourist, you don’t have to apply for a visa in advance. When you land, show your passport and a valid return ticket, and you’ll receive a standard tourist visa. This is good for 90 days.
Is Colombia safe?Yes! Let’s dispel the rumors now—Colombia is safe to visit. It's actually one of Latin America’s safest places to visit! Even big-city Bogota has a violent crime rate lower than that of Indianapolis, Indiana.
Do I need COVID-19 vaccine to go to Colombia?The CDC recommends to be fully vaccinated before traveling to Colombia.
How is the exchange rate?If you're using the dollar, it's great. Americans will find that the dollar (USD) is especially strong against the Colombian peso (COL). In fact, the exchange rate is currently is around COL$3,000 to the dollar. To put that in perspective, you can get a good lunch in Colombia for less than $8.00 USD.
Where are we staying?Most of the trip is taking place in Bogota where hotel accomodations are planned in the downtown area. A excusion is planned to a historical nearby town called Villa de Leyva where participants will spend two nights. Accomodations for this part of the trip will be at the historical square. All hotels are 3 star category, which may be subject to change in case of force majeure or overbooking. If for any reason the hotels are changed, the category of 3 stars or higher will be maintained.
Do you offer an installment plan?Yes! Installment plans are offered.
