Recent Colombia reviews

  • Convenient Location & Outstanding Service

    "Although this was my first stay at this property, it represented my second time renting from this owner, Ignacio. I echo all of the other five-star reviewers' comments. Simply: 1.) Ignacio is super-attentive and 2.) his team (drivers and housekeeper) graciously, professionally, and punctually performs its assigned tasks. Enjoy the multitude of fine-dining - all, predominately, within a brief (uphill) walk away. Taxis are abundant, inexpensive, and conveniently available right outside your front door. Visit Guatapé. Ride the Metrocable. Experience Medellin (clean, efficient, modern, safe, vibrant, etc.) and its unassuming inhabitants - from your home-base in Poblado!"

  • Spectacular Penthouse Apartment!

    "A luxurious, well-situated, clean and secure apartment with panoramic views. Close to all amenities and with just a small 4-lane road between its main entrance and a clean stretch of beach with great swimming conditions. Excellent and responsive communications with the property owner - Igacio. And, great housekeeping from Almafi. Highly recommended!"

  • The Best of both worlds

    "The condo is simply lovely! Gorgeous views, fresh breeze, conveniently located to both the walled city and the airport! We did not want to leave! The location is perfect since one can enjoy the beach and try some kite-boarding, if daring enough, in the morning and hop on a taxi and be in the historical beautiful town of Cartagena for lunch or afternoon coffee in 10 minutes (taxis are everywhere and affordable). Having a household help was wonderful as well! She would do shopping, cooking, and of course keep the place spotless! Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids: 6, 12) loved it so much that we're planning to return to enjoy both this beautiful condo and see more of Cartagena and the surrounding areas! The condo is indeed very spacious and the wrap around balcony with the comfy hammoks is to dream of!"

  • Great Spot

    "Great location within the city walls with spectacular view of the sea and within walking distance of all locations within the Old City. No need to go to Cafe del Mar, as this apartment has a better view! All in all, the apartment is as described and is tastefully furnished with all necessary appliances and beds. Be aware there is a winding 3 level staircase. Arrival went seamlessly with guard knowing our names and giving key, along with introduction to housekeeper. Payment via wire was somewhat of a hassle due to cross-border banking hiccups, but was no fault of the owner. Great location and spot!"

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.

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.
