HOW CAN I GET MONEY AT ARRIVAL?

You better don’t buy Colombian pesos (COP) in other countries. At the Colombian airport you can cash money at an ATM with a credit card (e.g. Visa, Mastercard…) or – less expensive – with a bank card (e.g. Maestro). Some banks just give you 300.000 COP (around 100 US dollar) but mostly you can receive the same amount a second time. Sometimes you can cash up till 780.000 COP in one operation. If possible, don’t use a non guarded ATM to prevent skimming. Preferably, choose mall ATM’s or ones located at crowded principal streets. And check your account whether all transactions are okay.
