How Can You Use Tom Plan My Trip For Your Next Trip to Colombia?

Ah, maybe you have been convinced by my presentation.  Excellent!! Let me explain how you can plan your next trip to Colombia.

I’m moving very slowly in Colombia to find all the secrets that Colombia can offer. For that, I’m accepting a lot of new experiences, staying with the locals, and looking for treasures in every city.

And I’m collecting all this information on my blog.

But I’m going further. As I said, my wish is to give you the best options for your travel in Colombia (in relation with what you’d like) and help you get off of the gringo trail.

In a Few Hours You Can Create A Plan Of Your Next Trip In Colombia

  • I need to know what you like. You can choose the filters you want (tags) to select the articles you could be interested.
  • My wish is to convince you to go to these places. To stop living in a bubble named “comfort zone” and leave space for the unknown. You will discover another aspect of travelling. Don’t worry, I will give you the max amount of information, stories, pictures and video.
  • You can download the infographic of the article (If there is one) so you can have access to it even if you don’t have the internet.
  • It’s possible to check on the interactive map to know where there are places and where your next destination could be. It´s always good to know where there are different areas.

Once you do your itinerary for Colombia, take your boots, your backpack, and live the adventure!

What are the different backpacker profiles?

For every accommodation, transport, and activity – I will give you a backpacker profile. It helps you to imagine what to expect. All the profiles are from more comfortable to less comfortable.


Beach Backpacker: You have to do nothing. It’s just a relaxing place where you can sleep. Almost no effort. Someone is taking care of you from A to Z. 

City Backpacker: Generally, you have to go to a place by yourself. It’s possible that you also have to use your legs and arms. However, my grandma could still do it.

Adventure Backpacker: It’s doable for most people. However, you have to earn it. It can be a trek of few days in the mountains. Effort and mindset are necessary. 

Iamacrazy Backpacker: You create your activity. It’s dangerous, but you know what you’re doing because it’s not your first time. It’s better to go with another person. 


Castel Backpacker: It’s the perfect place. They have nice rooms with excellent service. An amazing landscape surrounding it. It’s more expensive than the usual backpacker budget.

Double bed Backpacker: The top of the hostels. They have lovely rooms with a very nice social area. The localisation is great, and it’s in the upper part of the Hostelword list. It can also be a famous party hostel. 

Hammock Backpacker:  It’s a standard hostel. Clean but not perfect, simple toilette and shower. Usually, you book them in small towns where you don’t have a lot of different choices. However, most of them are okay, and you have more chances to meet interesting people.

Isleepstandingup Backpacker: You are in very hidden places. You are maybe the first backpacker they see. You have to adapt to their environment. Sometimes it’s not easy, but we are all travelling to try new experiences. Usually, the generosity of the locals compensates for the comfort.


Hill backpacker: You have rented a private jet or an Uber. It’s very comfortable, and it’s hard to do better

Flip Flop Backpacker: You choose the best bus company. You can easily sleep if it’s a night bus. However, it’s public transportation.

Runners Backpacker: It’s transportation that locals use. It can be a little uncomfortable sometimes, and the bus connections are hard to find or understand. But, it’s with this kind of transport that you will discover the country. Be ready for some new adventures. 

Idontneedshoes Backpacker: You are a travel expert. You don’t book in advance, and you are hitchhiking. You’re creating your way of transportation. Be careful – it’s not for everyone.
