The Colombian Peso is the only legal currency used in the Colombian Republic, although in tourist areas US Dollars and Euros are widely accepted. The Colombian Peso is not a commonly traded currency here in the UK, and most bureau de change and Post Office branches require you to order in advance as they may need to order the currency in. Ordering Colombian Pesos online is usually much quicker and cheaper than buying in the high street.
The main banks in Colombia including Bancolumbia, Banco de Bogota, Banco Davivienda and Banco Occidente all offer ATMs where you can use VISA and MasterCard cards to withdraw additional currency if you require it. Be vigilant when using ATM's as theft is common especially at night.
There is a departure tax of $35 USD (or equivalent in COP) when you leave the country. This is sometimes included in the price of your return air ticket so you should check beforehand with your travel provider.
Before you travel to Colombia you can get advice from the UK Government website
British nationals can enter Colombia for up to 90 days as a visitor without a visa at the discretion of the Colombian Immigration Officer on arrival. You may need to provide evidence of return or onward travel.
If you enter Colombia by land you should make sure your passport is stamped by the immigration authorities. Failure to do so may result in a fine on departure. If the immigration office on the border is closed, seek help at the nearest office of Migración Colombia.
