"" Colombia Favorite Tip by pptanner

Colombia General: 65 reviews and 53 photos

Fondest memory: The helpfulness of the people I encountered in my business travels stands out in my memory. Notably, one night when I checked in late and asked the hotel reception staff if it might be possible to find a place open to buy stockings before an early morning meeting the next day, I was informed that the adjacent shopping center was closed, but they would do their best to find some. Fifteen minutes later, a hotel employee was knocking on my door with the much-needed stockings! This is one small example of the Colombian hospitable attitude that has always stood out in my mind.

Additionally, I love the coffee, the beautiful walled city of Cartagena, the wonderful ajiaco and the jewelry.
