Always carry your Driver's License and Passport (or copy of your passport) and a cell phone for safety.
Before you travel to Colombia, visit any AAA office for your International Driving Permit. Bring your valid U.S. driverís license, $15.00, and two original passport-type photos. You will be issued the permit while you wait at the AAA office. Valid in over 150 countries, the permit contains your name, photo and driver information translated into ten languages.
