Hi Roberto, I went to Colombia a few years ago in october, the weather was great. We visited BogotaArmeniaSalento and Pereira, then MedellínSanta MartaTayrona National Natural Park and Cartagena.

If encourage you to include Santa Marta and Tayrona in your trip because, the national park specially, it's wonderful. You can take a few days off Bogota and Medellin, cause they are not large cities and you can visit almost everything in 2 or 3 days. 

In Bogota you shloud visit Gaira Café Cumbia House, it's a fabulous place owned by Carlos Vives. Also Andres Carne De Res is great. And in Cartagena there are lots of places to drink and dance. 

It is beautiful to stay in an hacienda, we went to one in Armenia and it was a great experience. 

I hope you enjoy your trip, it's a beautiful country.
