Always check the bill first as there is a 10% suggested tip that is normally added to the total. If you are not happy with the service feel free to get it removed or changed.

Post and Parcels

We suggest using Servientrega and Deprisa for both national and international documents, parcels and money transfers. International currier companies such as DHL and Fedex also have offices in all major cities of Colombia.


Police emergency number is 112 from any phone (mobile or land line). The Colombia Police Force is generally helpful and accommodating with tourists. If you ever get into trouble never try to bribe a Police officer, especially women as it is against the law and they may double your fine or even send you to a local police station. Use pedestrian roads and high pedestrian passes; if you are caught crossing a road where the pedestrian passing is within 100 meters you will get a pedestrian fine and will be sent to a two hour course in Spanish. In the unlikely event that a police suggest that a fine should be paid, be patient, apologize and most likely you will be left to go.
