AUD to COP Exchange Rate and more

Travel like a local in Colombia

In Colombia tourism was virtually non-existent for many years, but in the last five years the number of visitors to the country has increased by over 45%. The country is slowly establishing itself as a major tourist destination, with Caribbean coastline, rainforest, endangered animals, unique ecosystems and the Andes mountain range. It has something for everyone, and unique experiences as well as unique landscapes. Having Pacific and Caribbean coastlines, lush rainforests, and rolling mountains really create a tremendous backdrop for a vacation. If you are into sightseeing, hiking, eco-tourism, rare species of wild animals, and untouched paradises, Colombia has it all. The beaches on the Northern Caribbean coast boast white sandy beaches and island paradises. The beaches on the Western Pacific side are a little more geared towards the adventure traveller with lush green forests descending into the virgin beaches with exciting campgrounds and surf spots

The Colombia Peso?

The official currency of Colombia is the Colombian peso. It has been the official currency since 1810 when it replaced the Real. Like many South American currencies the Colombian Peso is divided into 100 centavos. The Denominations for coins include  20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 peso. The Denominations for banknotes include  1,000, 2,000, 5,000, 10,000, 20,000 and 50,000. In 2010 a new 2000 peso note was introduced which had braille to help the visually impaired, the first of its kind in Colombia. Another thing to note about the Colombian Pesos is the notes have “mil” written on them, this means thousand in spanish so a 20 mil note refers to 20 thousand not 20 million as you might presume.
