Like in the vast majority of Latin American countries, the national language of Colombia is Spanish. In general, Colombians do not speak very well English yet, so now you might wonder: how visiting Colombia without speaking Spanish? First of all, it is MiraMundo’s mission to make your trip as comfortable as possible so we work with English speaking guides. Hence, the only thing you’ll have to worry about is enjoying as much as possible.
However, it can be very useful to download an app like Google Translate on your phone before your trip to Colombia. With Google Translate you can download languages onto your device. This enables you to translate without an Internet connection, which is very practical while traveling.
Furthermore, it might be helpful (and fun) to learn some basic words of Spanish before your trip. Colombians will appreciate it when you try to speak their language; so don’t feel shy to practice your ‘Español’ while traveling through the country.
