Frequently asked questions

What is the best tour operator in Colombia?
There are plenty of great operators offering trips in Colombia. Like Kagumu Adventures, travel operators should be legally registered in Colombia, have plenty of experience and they should be transparent in their approach to responsible travel. You can read Kagumu’s social and environmental commitment by clicking here.

Is it safe to travel to Colombia?
Yes. In general Colombia is safe and your travel operator should have planned your journey so you don’t have to worry about anything. Kagumu can supply risk assessments before any trips. This being said, always be vigilant as you would while traveling to any country.

Do I need a visa?
Yes, but you will receive a travel visa when you arrive at the airport which will cover your stay in Colombia.

When is the best time of year to go?
Colombia has a multitude of climates so check where you want to go first and then the best time of year for the climate you desire. As a general rule, dryer seasons last from December to March and from June to August. Try to avoid high seasons – Easter and mid-December to mid-January.

What is the food like in Colombia?
Colombia’s food is wide and varied depending on the region you visit. Hearty soups and stews are often served in the Andean regions while on the coast you will find fried fish and plantain. Colombia excels in tropical fruits and of course world-class Arabica coffee. If you are keen for a lunch deal try the Colombian favorite: ​menu del dia – menu of the day – a wholesome meal for around $3USD.

Is Colombia good for vegans and vegetarians?
The country has made great strides in terms of food diversity and being vegan and vegetarian friendly. Big cities like Bogota, Medellin and Cartagena have great vegan and vegetarian options while it may be a bit harder when you hit the rural towns. Be warned though, Colombians don’t often consider chicken “carne” – meat – so double check before ordering.

What is Colombia famous for?
Well, if you have ever seen Netflix’s series Narcos you will know about Pablo Escobar. But Colombia is much more than money-crazed gangsters with big moustaches. Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez hails from Colombia as does world-renowned sculptor Fernando Botero. Latin singer Shakira is from the Caribbean coast and the soccer team, La Selección is often on the edge of greatness. In general, Colombians are incredibly friendly and they love music and dance. Just wait to see

Do I need to speak Spanish?
Not really. You will be able to get around with English (just about). In fact, only 4.2% of the country speaks English. However, to really endear yourself to locals try to learn a few phrases before you arrive.​
