We recommend the downtown hotels, which have an suitable price and are well located, close to the Plaza Bolivar. To get around the city there is the Megabus, a massive mean of transportation with air conditioning that covers several areas of the city. The price of the ticket per person is about 1.700 COP.... The electric current kind used in Colombia is 110-volt AC (110 V), with a frequence of 60 Hz. We recommend you to have a plug adaptor if you travel to places that use other voltage.
