Hi!

When I went I took American and Colombian Pesos. Canadian may be accepted now but I'm not sure. The following site is what I used...extremely reputable. I placed my order for Pesos and they delivered by 9am to my home the very next day.

You can exchange your money at the hotel, bank or use an ATM.

Have fun! I wish there were still flights out of Ontario!

I think you will find out that they are sting rays not manta rays. We went with Mario and Ilsa a year ago January and it was the best time. The rays are so gentle and soft. there is nothing to be afraid of.

If you want to see the Manta Rays swimming with people at San Andres

Go to U tube and type in San Andres Island Columbia. There are number of video feeds from people who have visited the island and one shows people swimming with the Mantas.

About the money, we are taking down American cash and will change it to Columbian pesos if neccessary.

Apparently changing from Canadian to Columbian is a real hassel.

I don,t know what the excange rate is but if you deal with a bank online you should be able to find out from that site

Only four more sleeps until we leave
