TRAVELLING IN COLOMBIA
Travel in Colombia has improved greatly due to massive government investment in road and air infrastructure.
Whilst frustratingly, many internal flights connect through Bogota, each month there are more and more direct flights between major cities and destinations such as Medellin, Cartagena, Bogota and Cali. More and more low-cost carriers are penetrating the market which will hopefully inject some much needed competition over
the next few years.
Generally flights are punctual, with good service and a wide range of flight times. More remote locations are served by reliable airlines such as Satena, that whilst having a restricted baggage allowance, their service, reliability and punctuality can’t be criticized, considering that their destinations are the most remote locations in the country.
Road connections are very good to excellent between major cities and regions thanks to the construction of new 4G highways, with most secondary and tertiary (unpaved) roads in good condition. We’ve been on some bad roads, but in Colombia there is a good 4×4 network that ensures travel to remote jungle or mountain lodges is never too difficult.
Hotel infrastructure is growing and there are more and more hotels opening up all the time, at all levels. Generally in major cities there is a hotel for every type of client with the star-level understandably lowering the more remote you go. That said, even in the most remote locations we have sourced clean, comfortable and unique accommodations for our clients.
