The Colombia guide

Latest articles

There are 3 types of visas for foreigners who wish to live in Colombia. If you are planning to stay in Colombia for less than six months for tourist purposes, you may need to apply for a tourist visa. 

Located primarily in the northwest of South America (with some territories in Central America), Colombia welcomes travellers with its Caribbean beaches, cobblestone towns and villages, enigmatic ancient civilisation and a diversity of landscapes.

Both visitors and those who stay long term in Colombia will have no shortage of things to do. Colombia’s rich culture and diverse natural landscape mean that expats will have a wide range of leisure activities to choose from.

Keeping in touch with friends and family is a top concern no matter where you are living. In order to stay in contact while abroad, you’ll likely want a local phone and internet connection. Expats living in Colombia have many options for high-quality phone plans and internet coverage.

Moving is stressful and requires good planning. A shipping company will greatly reduce the stress of moving your belongings internationally as they will coordinate both the removal of your things as well as all documents needed to clear customs. If moving to Colombia, this is especially important if you do not speak an intermediate level of Spanish.

Flavors of Bogota

5 years ago

Flavors of Bogota is the chronicle of my discoveries here in Bogota and Latin America in general. As a food and travel writer, I%u2019m always meeting chefs, restaurant owners, writers and editors who all have their fascinating stories. I%u2019m involved in food events, restaurant openings and trends in Colombia and I love to share those experiences. Traveling as a travel writer is quite different than as a tourist, and I share that perspective.
