5/6 In Pasto we stayed in a hotel close to the bus station (Hotel Villara) 10,000 for a double room with baño and cable tv and a big window opening onto a fairly quiet street. The first day we just laxed out and watched tv and the next day went into ... Read more >

The next morning, still drizzling, we caught a collectivo (car that goes when full) to Pitalito and from there through to Mocoa. We stayed the night in a small residencia which was a very simple room with a bed for 7,000p. Mocoa was an uninteresting ... Read more >

We arrived after a very fast (for central america and colombia) 9 hour bus trip overnight from Bogota. Went looking for a place to camp and got invited into a womans house to use her spare room for 7,000. This was a lucky thing as it started to rain ... Read more >


Bogota

We arrived in Bogota in the evening around 9pm (30,000 each from San Gil to Bogota). Arriving late in any city is never our plan as it's not good to wander around in the dark and we can't disguise the fact we are tourists... On arrival our bus driver ... Read more >

We took a taxi from our hotel in Aguachica to the carraterra thinking to catch a bus there as it is cheaper to catch one on the road than to buy a ticket at the terminal. So we get there and find ourselves talked into going to Bucaramanga by taxi! There ... Read more >

We caught a bus from Macondo to a place, any place, that was about 2hours down the road. The bus guys suggested Aguachica and took our 20,000 each and off we went. We were only on the bus for an hour when they said we had to get off and change buses.... Read more >

We flew from Panama to Cartagena with no problems, no extra fees except we had to pay US$10 each entry to Colombia, must be a new thing. The flight was short but even so we got fed a lovely meal on the way which was excellent. At the Cartagena airport ... Read more >
