Attractive price but considering how Columbia downplayed Covid to the extend their President caught it.....my butt is staying at YUL.
Sucks I do want to travel but my urge to live supersedes it.

+1 to the OP for the effort

Edit, - BRAZIL not Columbia

Quite sure you're thinking of Brazil? Colombia's president didn't catch the virus, I don't think, and their reaction was (initially) better than many other countries. They did ease up too soon and paid the price.

All things equal, Mexico's response to the virus and Colombia's current number of cases don't sound too promising. Good prices though! +1

Is $300 actually hot considering:

- a connection that too in Mexico
- the current drop in demand

Honestly prices should be around $150.

Airline pricing doesn't follow standard supply and demand curves.
If a plane is not full, the Average Selling Price is usually HIGHER than a full plane.
Youtube airline pricing.

The country is Colombia and its president has never tested positive for COVID-19. You're obviously entitled to make your own decisions regarding travel, but don't spread blatantly false information.

You could at least spell the country youre advertising the trip to correctly. I dont understand why people have such a hard time properly spelling Colombia.

Btw, if you go to Colombia dont waste your time in Bogota. There are much better cities to go to, such as Cartagena, Barranquilla, Or Medellin.

Colombia initially locked down hard and earlier than NA despite little cases. They even cancelled national (within colombia) flights until recently. If they lock down again you may have a hell of a time getting back here. Currently they operated one (1) direct flight to Canada out of Bogota at the end of September and one upcoming on the 22nd this month to Canada. That's it for recent flights to Canada atm. If you happened not to be in Bogota before they locked down, you were SOL as there were no flights to get you there. Maybe you could drive/bus to Bogota you may think (its a big country)? They had travel restrictions between states so that was not an option either unless you had a letter from consulate / embassy. Giving those interested in knowing whats possible there if you decide to go.

Agreed. People are very friendly, and the influx of ignorance tourist following The Escobar series seems to have people quite upset. They’re such friendly people, and Medellin has some come a long way since.

I did however avoid Barranquilla, due to the apparent risks....but will try to check it out whenever the covid dust settles

This pisses me off so much and its too true. Its a disgrace that people want to come and seek out something that caused so much destruction. When I went for the first time about a decade ago it was APPARANT that locals had obvious feelings in one direction. Its a shame tourists come and pay for that sh*t.

Edit: please book direct with the airline if possible.

Well that's one hell of an accusation over an honest mistake. Glad you don't patrol my neighbourhood.


Cheers, KH

Columbia has come a long way.
For folks who are worried about safety, I'd say Brazil is worse these days.

I would not even think about this at this point. This is all for them to take your $$ to keep the lights on. I just booked a flight to Bermuda (for later next month) and they cancelled it for no reason. And yes, they kept my $ and will only give me travel credits (fighting this decision).

I would only start thinking about booking with WestJet once they start consistently flying to a location. Otherwise you are putting your $$ and time (vacation days, planning etc.) at risk, unless you don't mind having travel credits.
