Things I wish I knew before visiting Colombia!👇🏼:
💫It’s spelled Colombia, not Columbia.
💫 You better like avocado, plantains, and corn, because it’s everywhere! Not complaining.
💫 Their currency (Colombian peso) has a LOT of zeros. $ 15 USD = 50 000 pesos. This will really get you practicing your mental math skills!
💫 ATMs frequently run out of money. And they only let you withdraw 600 000 pesos ($180) at a time.
💫 The best Colombian coffee is exported, so the common drink for Colombians is tinto (hot water, milk, and some coffee grounds- recipe varies from place to place)
💫 Colombians are super friendly and polite, and always willing to help you out!
💫 Uber is SO CHEAP here! I paid $2 for a ten minute ride! 😱. Edited with my Mobile Preset Pack
