The New El Dorado Airport
WOW!! Forget everything I ever mentioned about traveling into Bogota via the El Dorado Airport. Everything has changed. Just a few months ago, there was a grand opening, and in December, our family got to experience it first hand. New! Sleek ! Modern! and dare I say it -- EFFICIENT! Your arrival in Bogota will now be easy. Even immigration -- on Christmas Day -- went smoothly and quickly. You get off the plane, go to immigration, wait in any number of short lines, check in, get your passport stamp and head to real luggage carrousels. Amazing!! Even the ADUANA (aka customs) was a breeze. NO more stop light, just hand them your form and you are off. Finally, WELCOME TO COLOMBIA!!!!!!
