Which are the energy (electricity), internet & mobile phone services available in Colombia?
- Energy outlets in Colombia are at 120 Volts (never 220V as in Europe).
- Internet is usually available at hotels and lodges in main (Bogotá, Medellín, Cali) and intermediate cities (Santa Marta, Riohacha). Most birding lodges provide no access to internet (Río Claro, Chestnut-capped Piha Reserve, Colibrí del Sol, Las Tangaras, Río Blanco, Otún-Quimbaya). Small towns may or may not have internet.
- Mobile phone signal will be available for most of the time, but please have in mind that it may not be functional at specific sites or in mountainous and curvy roads. Movistar, Comcel & Tigo are the main companies covering Colombia. For optimal coverage, our guides carry mobile phones with service from at least two of the above companies.
