"Of Mysterious Origin But Equally Important"
Sustainability is the capacity to maintain, support, or endure. We view global sustainability as the earth’s capacity to maintain, support, or endure the continued survival of the human species in absence of any major catastrophic event. This can only be accomplished by generating a balance between a healthy environment with responsible resource management, while stabilizing human population growth. At Colombia World, we believe education and awareness is a key first step in this process and we aim to deliver it in the most exciting, thrilling, and memorable way possible!
Lightly! As we will be moving around the country, it can become tiresome to lug around excess amounts of unnecessary luggage. We recommend packing only the essentials, and leaving room for things you will pick up on your journey. Furthermore, domestic flight luggage allowances are not as accommodating as international flights, with stricter restrictions on baggage weight. Please check with the airlines for details.
For recommendations and guidance for which items are essential and which items are not so essential, check out this helpful site: "What to pack - World Backpackers".

Our visitors will notice that, as is Colombian custom, locals will always do their best to be welcoming and friendly to foreigners, even if they don’t speak the same language.
Most tourists will feel the warm Colombian welcome regardless of their knowledge of Spanish.

This depends on personal spending preferences. All of our tours are all-inclusive, therefore any additional personal expenses (ex: souvenir shopping, shopping for personal items, drinks, extra snacks etc.) are up to you.
Note: There will be access to instant teller services at most destinations, therefore, guests need not worry about bringing large sums of money. Rather, we advise that you bring a conservative amount of money, and withdraw money on an as-needed basis. Travellers checks are always a good back up in case your cards give you trouble (a rare occurrence that is not likely to happen).
The Colombian Peso (COP) is the official currency and the only currency accepted at most establishments.
