6. Gift Giving and Accepting Gifts
- DO bring flowers (Colombians love roses!), chocolates or fruit when visiting somebody.
- DO give alcohol when you want something more ‘special’. All alcohol is imported in Colombia, so it is considered a nice and expensive gift.
- DON'T give lilies or marigolds. These flowers are for funerals.
- DON'T open wrapped gifts upon receiving.
Go with the flow of the Colombians and don’t take time too serious. Have a great trip to Colombia!
