Compared to the US Dollar, one USD is equal to about 2700- 2800 COP$ Peso currencies.
The Colombian Peso is a closed currency, meaning that it can only be transacted or used within Colombia. So the availability of the currency in India is very much rare. Most of the banks and exchange centres do not facilitate the direct conversion of Indian Rupee to Colombian Peso or back. So the only way of converting INR to COP is by converting to USD and then convert USD to COP. You have to carry Colombian currency within Colombia because of the fact that any other form of currency is not accepted much in Colombia. The Pesos is mostly the sole form of transaction in Colombia. Even if you carry forex cards or any form of a plastic transactional method such as credit or debit card it is important to notice that most establishments do not have a provision for using them. So it is always to carry around the Colombian Pesos in case if they don’t.
