Did you know it’s really easy to score free accommodation when you travel to Colombia? The single best way to make this happen is through hospitality exchange methods.
The most obvious one is couch surfing. Many Colombians are friendly, and will offer to let you stay on their couch for free. Just make sure to fill out your couch surfing profile, and send out as many requests as possible. It seems like women have better luck when it comes to scoring a place, as many female backpackers I have met has successfully secured a host while I haven’t.
If you weren’t able to secure a couch, another way to score free accommodation is through Workaway!
