FAQs

As you’re starting to plan your trip, many of you may have been researching Colombia. It has had, in the past, a reputation for drug trafficking and political upheaval in the 1970s-1990s. Thankfully, it has improved tremendously. Like in any major international city, it will be prudent to be aware of your surroundings, and particularly to minimize cell phone use in public. Or, how they say in Colombia, “no dar papaya” (“don’t give papaya,” or don’t put yourself in a position where people can take advantage of you). The parts of Colombia that are listed by the Department of State are in faraway border towns, approximately 500 miles away—the distance from Jackson, MS to Tampa, FL. We will be in groups, with arranged transportation, and will stay in the safest areas of Bogotá. Your safety will be a priority throughout the weekend. We would not invite our loved ones to join us if we weren't confident that everyone would be safe! We can’t wait to see you all.
Question

Where should we stay?

Answer

Transportation will be arranged to all events (Fri-Sun) from the hotels listed in the Travel & Hotels section. Please feel free to stay elsewhere, but you will be responsible for your own transportation :) (unless you meet us at the hotels!)

Question

How do we get around Bogotá?

Answer

We will provide transportation between the hotels listed and all events. If you want to explore the city on your own, we recommend Uber--but note that someone will have to ride in the front seat! (this is actually a rule in Colombia)

Question

Will the ceremony be outside?

Answer

The ceremony will be outside, and the reception will be under a tent. Temperature in Bogotá in October ranges from 50 - 65 F (18 - 26 C). A light jacket might be needed for the evening.

Question

Will there be parking available?

Answer

Yes! There will be parking at Hacienda El Salitre.

Question

How high is Bogotá? Will I get altitude sickness?

Answer

Bogotá is located on a plateau in the Andes Mountains at an average altitude of 2,640 meters (8,660 ft). About 15-20% of people will get a mild altitude sickness at 2,500 meters. Symptoms can include headache and nausea. If you are prone to altitude sickness, we suggest discussing prophylactic medications with your medical provider.
