Colombia has a relaxed policy towards visas and there are few nationals visiting Colombia that actually need one. Entry is permitted visa-free to citizens from most of Europe and the Americas, as well as Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, South Africa and Japan. A 90-day stay is permitted upon arrival.
The Colombian currency is the peso. US dollars are rarely accepted so it's best to exchange you cash for pesos. $1 = 3028 pesos.
Credit cards are widely accepted at restaurants, hotels, shops and other services such as tour companies. However, it’s a good idea to get some Colombian pesos (COP) from an ATM (bring a debit card for this) after arrival to pay for budget meals, bus tickets, small souvenirs, and taxis.
Colombia is a year-round destination, so there is no single best time to visit the country. Due to its close proximity to the equator, the weather in Colombia won’t change much over the year.
Along with routine vaccinations like chickenpox and polio, it’s recommended that all travelers to Colombia get vaccinated against hepatitis A and typhoid before visiting. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that certain travelers to Colombia be vaccinated against hepatitis B, rabies, malaria, and yellow fever, depending on where in the country they’re traveling and what they’ll be doing there.
