Colombia Trip Planning

There are a wide range of hotel options in Colombia, from small guest houses known as hospedajes to five-star accommodations. When choosing a location to stay, be sure to select one that is approved by the official Colombia Hotel Association.


Some of the hospedajes in Colombia are like bed and breakfasts in other countries. Usually those that offer a meal have a slightly higher room rate than those that do not. Most are relatively reasonable and can range from a room in someone’s. home to something like a hotel.


Along the Caribbean and Pacific Coasts, camping areas are available, most within Tayrona National Park. There, you can hire a tent, or you can work with a camping tour company who will provide you with your supplies. Outside of these areas, camping is not recommended due to safety issues.


There is a youth hostel trail, mostly found in larger cities like Bogota, Medelin, Salento and San Gil. Most have excellent accommodations and facilities. Higher end hostels are designed for people of all ages with many offering kitchen facilities and space in a refrigerator.


Colombia also has quite a few eco-resorts, mostly in the Amazonian jungles. Some of these are designed for environmental protection while others are geared toward teaching locals how to farm without destroying the land. There are even eco-yoga retreats that offer meditation and vegetarian food.


You must have a valid passport that will be good for at least six months after your stay. United States residents do not need a visa as long as they will be in the country less than 90 days. If you need to stay longer than 90 days, you must request an extension and you will face a fine if you stay beyond that time. You will be unable to leave Colombia until the fine is paid. You may be required to show proof of yellow fever vaccination.
