"Changing the dollar" Colombia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by tampa_shawn

Colombia Warnings and Dangers: 55 reviews and 31 photos

Colombia is a very good place to buy dollars. Why? Because of the huge amount of blackmarket dollars coming into the country
from sales of cocaine abroad there are way to many dollars in the country. As such one can buy dollars cheaper than the market
price. Conversely Colombia is not such a good place to bring dollars to buy pesos. Better to take the money out of an account
or use travellers checks. In summary NEVER change dollars to pesos in Colombia

advise from the Black Sheep Hostel. Exact link is below
