“Overall it was a good to get a quick experience of Colombia but on certain days it was too much free time and on certain days very rushed. Spending two free afternoons on at Armenia was a total waste of time. Also, we could have taken an early morning flight from Medellin to Cartagena instead of afternoon flight which just wasted half a day. On the whole nearly 1.5 days wasted. Otherwise it was good.”
