Thinking about going to Colombia. Can anyone tell me how many hours/kilometers from Bogota to Quito. I would also know if its a safe thing to hire a car in this area. I also need to know if it is ok to cross the border to Ecuador with a hired car.
Alternatively,how many hours by bus and how expensive??
What are the main attractions on this route??
It is 1538 kms between the two cities, and no would not recommend hiring a car. You might be wise to study the posts here by other VT'ers who have visited these areas and get some more information there.
Have laid my eyes on Leticia and will probably
take the plane from Bogota.
Heard that Leticia area
is one of the safest in Colombia.
