I am heading to Colombia and currently have about 7 days budgeted to go there (though nothing solid is booked at the moment, so that can be changed). At the moment, all I have booked is 4 days in Bogota, and 3 days in Cartagena.
I'm new to South America and this will be my first week traveling there. I've traveled in Europe and Asia before without an issue, but I know this is a new continent and I'm prepared for a learning curve, so I'm not looking to go REALLY far off the beaten path, though I am looking for a challenge.
My Spanish is passable, I would like wherever possible to stay in safe areas. I like to party and I like beaches, but they're definitely not a focus for me, more of like a nice to have.
I'm on a budget, but definitely not a shoestring budget. I have about $1200 for the 7 days.
Does anyone have suggestions?
