Recent South America reviews

  • Nice Condo, you will not be disappointed!!!

    "The owner is an American fella who was easy to work with and had everything ready for us in advance. The view of the old city from the balcony was amazing especially at night. This condo has two great bedrooms with really comfortable beds and top notch linens. As a frequent traveler to Colombia I know how rare that is and it was truly appreciated. I was a bit leery at first about the Palmetto building because I had seen some of the other condos and heard some negative things about the water pressure and pool area but it was a complete non issue for us. The pool area was nice, clean and always had lots of people around enjoying the beautiful weather. If you want to stay in Bocagrande this condo is perfect. The beach is 50 feet outside the front lobby and there are many shops and restaurants directly behind the building. The old city is a 6 minute and $3 taxi ride away."

    "The apt as well as the building was great. Top class concierge and pool area with nice lunch choices. When it was too hot by the pool we went to the beach, and when too windy at the beach we stayed by the pool. A/C worked well and balcony was a pleasure. Would highly recommend."

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.
