Recent Colombia reviews

  • Great location

    "Location was perfect - near beach (can actually see and hear the surf from the bedroom!), good restaurants walking distance, friendly people in area, easy to get a taxi to old town. Area of beach (to left walking out) that has a bunch of beach activities like jet skis, boats, wild ski board thing, water taxi to island, and restaurants on the water. Small convenience store right in building plus a larger one right across the street. 24x7 building security as well but thankfully didn't seem like an area that needed it. Room - very clean and bright with lots of windows and a sliding door allowing the ocean breeze in. Everything was in working condition and modern (ie, not someone's dumping ground for their old junk...new functioning stuff) including an Apple TV and WiFi that was pretty fast. We like cooking in sometimes and were able to do so with the full kitchen. There were only 3 of us staying for the week, but could easily see it comfortably accommodating more - especially with 2 full bathrooms. Also nice to have a washer there so you can pack less clothes and just do a load of laundry during the stay. Very relaxing area and calming stay for us - top floor so you don't hear the road noise and people chatter."

  • Great apartment in a great location!

    "I had the pleasure of staying at the studio for the second time in two years. I will definitely be back. The apartment is clean and in a very convenient location easy to walk to all points of interest. It is also equipped with all the comforts of home including A/C and hot water, fridge, and laundry. One other perk is the balcony which is great to enjoy a cocktail while people watching on the busy street below. I highly recommend staying there."

  • Great stay!

    "We stayed one week in this apartment. We had a fantastic week in the heart of the old city. The place is charming and the owner very helpful. The apartment was perfect, being big enough and comfortable for 2 couples with small children. I would definitely recommand it."

Colombia Travel Tips

Attractions and Activities near Colombia Vacation Rentals

There are many cultural attractions, museums, historic buildings and cultural festivals that make Columbia an attractive destination to visit. Because of its location, Columbia has had many cultural influences, including Indian, Spanish and African influences. This is evident as you explore the many historic sites of the area.

Columbia is considered by many to be an adventure mecca. There is whitewater rafting, jungle trekking, horseback riding, and a variety of extreme sports available. The Pacific coastline is a favorite place for whale watching. Visitors can experience nature and wildlife tours in the Amazon jungle with experienced guides. The beaches are places where you can relax and simply enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings as you soak up the sun.

Colombia Travel Tips

For many years, travelers were warned of visiting Colombia because of the political factions that were regarded as dangerous. In the past decade though, the government has taken strong measures to improve security in order to attract more foreign tourists. Tourist numbers have increases significantly and many travel magazines rate Columbia as top travel destination because of the diverse landscapes and many natural and cultural attractions. It is nevertheless still a destination where you need to be street smart. Don’t leave baggage unattended and don’t walk around the city on your own at night. Take a taxi and have a map or guide book with you so you know where you are going. Don’t display expensive jewelry or cameras when you are walking around. On the plus side, you will be able to find colorful souvenirs to take home and be able to sample what is arguably the world’s best coffee. No doubt you will want to take some home with you but be aware of customs allowances.

Finding Your Way to Colombia Vacation Apartments

The primary airport in Colombia is the El Dorado International Airport in Bogota. The airport is a relatively modern structure and hosts a number of local, regional and international airlines. There are relatively frequent commercial flights to North America. The closest U.S. city is Miami which is a three- to four-hour flight away. New York City is four to five hours away by plane and Los Angeles is eight to nine hours away by plane. For travelers from Europe, there are regularly scheduled commercial flights from both Paris and Madrid. People traveling from other parts of the world can route via any of these hubs or major cities in South America, such as Sao Paolo or Buenos Aires. El Dorado’s central location in the region makes it one of the busiest airports in South America in terms of transporting both passengers and cargo. If you are traveling to another destination in Colombia, it is best to fly. While there are good road links, traveling times can be long because of the many mountain passes that need to be navigated.

Cartagena Vacation Rentals in Colombia

Cartagena is one of Colombia’s most popular tourist destinations. It has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its strong cultural traditions, beautiful beaches and diverse range of historic architecture. There are numerous cultural festivals that take place each year that attract many visitors. In the summertime, people flock to the beaches and enjoy the vibrant nightlife that the city is known for. If you enjoy photography and old architecture, you will enjoy the many different architectural styles exhibited in Cartagena. The buildings make excellent photo subjects. It is a city where there is plenty to see and do but you can just as easily spend your days relaxing on the beach and simply watching the passing crowds.
