Colombia Budget

Colombia Budget

So what did we spend in Colombia during our 6 ½ weeks?  Budgeting and keeping track of everything you spend can be extremely tedious but it's nothing we aren't familiar with.  In preparation for this trip we spent months and months heavily budgeting and analyzing our expenses so we were already in the routine when we started traveling. 

So where did our money go?

Taganga Fishing Village

Taganga Fishing Village

After arriving at the small fishing village of  Taganga we settled in at La Masia, our hostel for the next 7 days. It had a nice pool to relax at when the beaches got crowded. It also had a few lounge areas and a bar for evening drinks. It had a nice quiet atmosphere and wasn’t very busy at all through out our whole stay which was perfect for us to just relax after the long days travelling to South America.

Our Trip Down To Colombia

Our Trip Down To Colombia

So our trip down to Colombia was anything but relaxing.  As a lot of you know, I was fighting a nasty cold before I left Kelowna so it made the trip down to Colombia a heck of a lot harder.  We left bright and early on Valentines Day for the first of 4 flights that day.  It took a total of 25 hours to get down to Santa Marta, Colombia.
