WELCOME TO THE CITY OF SMILES
The currency of our country is the Colombian peso, which has banknote denominations of one thousand, two thousand, five thousand, ten thousand, twenty thousand, fifty thousand, and one hundred thousand pesos; The last two, as they are high-denomination bills, are less frequently used when making small purchases, especially in informal places or on the street, so we recommend changing them to avoid any inconvenience.
At the same time, it is important to know that in Colombia cash money is much more common than plastic money, however, purchases with credit cards can be made in hotels, supermarkets, stores in shopping centers, restaurants, among others.
Of course, we also have coins and we use them a lot. Their denominations are: one thousand, five hundred, two hundred, one hundred and fifty pesos, they are very useful to adjust the payment of public transport services, food, tips, among others.
