Colombia

Colombia

We spent 22 days in Colombia, from Santa Marta in the north to Ipiales and Las Lajas in the south. We overstayed by only a couple of days and would have liked to see a bit more but the country was a little more expensive than we had expected.

For where we stayed and our budget view our Colombia route page.

Places of interest we visited:
