Should I change money before I go?
It is best to change your money before you leave in order to secure a good rate, however it will be possible to change your money locally either at the airport or a travelex or bank. Do let the pack leader know if you would like help with this.
How much should I budget per day for extras?
Around £25 - £40 a day should be plenty, but this is guidance only as you know your spending patterns better than we do.
Is it customary to tip?
Yes it is, for restaurants and bars giving a 10% tip is fairly normal in Colombia.Then for your guide and driver, it is customary, though not compulsory to tip them. We recommend around USD 3 a day for guides and for drivers, this would normally be given at the end of the adventure and is completely up to you and whether you feel they have earnt it.
