The official currency in Colombia is the peso - abbreviated to COP. Like many of the other South American pesos, 1 Columbian peso is divided into 100 centavos.
Pesos have been used in Colombia since 1810 when they replaced the use of the real. The central bank in Colombia is the Banco de la República, which issues the peso.
Since 2001 the Colombian Senate has been discussing the possibility of introducing a new peso worth 1000 old pesos, in a bid to streamline the amount of zeros currently recited on coins and banknotes.
What to spend your peso on**:
A cup of coffee
Local bottle of beer
3 course meal for 2
Local bus ticket
Entry to Cartagena old town

Ordering my USD online.
I ordered my money online and then received a friendly phone call to be told my money had arrived and was ready to be collected, earlier than expected which was really helpful. On arrival to collect I was greeted with a smile and the lady behind the counter could not have been more helpful and even offered extra advice and information that was much appreciated. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Travelex again.Sharan Weier

An easy and hassle free order to place and collect.Chelle Peters
Transaction went smoothly
Transaction went smoothly. I was able to pick up the currency from my local post office. Some mix up with the payment of $10 pick up fee from Australia Post, which I thought was payable at the time and point of collection. Travelex appear to have been competitive. Overall, I have no reason to not recommend this company.Keith Hillier

Always enjoyed a good service. So sad though $10 charge for making pick up at Australia Post, has made Qantas Travel Money a better option.Glenn Adam
