Exclamation  Which Colombian City for Xmas/NYE?
Due to visa problems in Peru and my plan of Bolivia I am continuing with my original itinerary of heading up to Colombia.

Forum I need you help!

Which city is going to be the best for NYE & Xmas, I have one month planned but im going to request a 90 day visa at the border this time instead of making the mistake of only getting 30 days in Lima.

I was thinking Barranquilla is the city for me, but I am not 100% sure. I cannot find many apartments for rent on airbnb etc in Barranquilla, unlike say Bogota or Medellin.

My spanish has improved greatly in the month that I have been here but it is far from fluent!

Cali.

They have their annual Feria de Cali every year from December 25-30. Something id def check out.

Most people stay in with family on Christmas and NYE in Colombia. Not a huge party like else where around the world.

christmas is a great time to be in colombia, however, you must consider anywhere else in the world for NYE. Colombians celebrate christmas like NYE, and NYE like Christmas eve - they stay indoors and clubs close for the most part.

Your best bet for NYE in South America is Brazil. Panama, I've never been there for NYE.

Oh well, I am here. Worst case scenario I use the down time to make some headway on the spanish and focus on some business.
