Check the Colombian Consular web site to find out if you need a visa. It depends on where you live.


Compare car rent

If you know in advance which places you're going to visit, you can find out online if and where there are ATM's where you can use your MasterCard and Cirrus or Visa to withdraw money.

Safety and security

Traveling in some countries or regions can be dangerous. That isn't always a reason not to go there, but part of preparing well for a trip includes finding out about possible risks.

The CIA World Factbook: Colombia is a good source. As is the US Foreign Department site. Of course you always should consult your own country's Foreign Department web site.


For up-to-date information about health risks, go to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Colombia. Always consult your family doctor and your country's Foreign Department web site.

Plan your trip to Colombia online

Through online reservation systems like À la Carte Vacations you can book airline tickets, hotels, rental cars and holiday houses. You can build a fly-drive itinerary with maximum flexibility, book a flight plus a hotel hotel for a night or weekend. Without the limitations of package deals from travel organisations and most times for a much better price.
