I had an amazing experience with Intern Colombia. From the beginning, they put a lot of thought and effort into finding an internship that really suited me. They were always super helpful with any questions or doubts I had. My marketing internship really helped develop my skills and it gave me very valuable experience. During my time in Bogotá, Intern Colombia were always in contact with me and the other interns, organizing social events that would get us out and about exploring the city. I couldn't have asked for a better experience; I highly recommend Intern Colombia if you are thinking about doing an internship in Colombia. I would also highly recommend Colombia if you are thinking about doing an internship abroad. It's a beautiful country, rich in culture and with delicious food.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't be afraid to go out and explore. Colombia has an unfortunate and inaccurate reputation of being really dangerous. Don't let fear lock you inside because you will be missing out on a lot of amazing things. And one of the best parts about being part of a program like Intern Colombia is that you get to explore and go on adventurous with people you known you can trust.

I had planned on going to Colombia over the summer, but due to the guidelines around Covid-19 I wasn't able to travel. Intern Colombia helped me adapt my plans and start a remote internship. During the ever-changing Covid-19 situation, they did a great job of communicating consistently and keeping me updated with their plans. They matched me with an awesome organization that's helping me get the exact type of work experience I was looking for and have been checking in to make sure everything is going well. Even though it's remote, they have been organizing virtual cultural events to build community and ensure the experience is as great as it can be. Definitely recommend!

Taking classes at La Javeriana, having an internship with a nonprofit which allowed me to help and teach baseball to children all across the country, as well as creating friendships I'll maintain for the rest of my life. These are just a few of the things I got out of my program with Intern Colombia. They helped manage and set up the best 3 months of my life, and something I will reminisce upon for years to come. I hope to make it back to Colombia sometime in the coming years to not only meet up with old friends, but to explore even more of the beautiful country that is Colombia.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't be afraid to "try" to speak Spanish. I came into this program only with 2 semesters worth of college spanish; and was nearly fluent by the time I left. The Colombian people are incredibly friendly, helpful, and fun to say the least. They will try to help you learn if you are willing to learn and try your best.

I went to Bogotá to complete a 12-week internship on my Year Abroad as part of my degree at university, and it was by far one of the best experiences of my life.
I had never been to South America before so it was difficult to know what to expect, but Matt and the Intern Colombia team made the transition much easier from the start. Being met at the airport straight away made me feel more at ease, and ensured a positive start to my stay. Even though I already spoke a lot of Spanish at the time, it is always nice to be met by an English speaker to help you to settle in.
The opportunity to complete an internship in such a different environment is one that I can recommend to anybody, which I have done consistently. As the internship was part of my degree, my main goal was to improve my Spanish ability, and being in a working environment is by far the best way to do this. Having to use my Spanish in work situations really pushed me, and being in an office surrounded by Colombians and other South Americans gave me exposure that wouldn't have been possible if I had just taught English.
My internship was with Mi Águila, a corporate taxi startup. Everyone at the company was so friendly and helpful, and it was a great environment to work in. The Spanish in the office was often difficult to understand and I spent quite a few lunches sitting there quite confused, but by the end, this had worked wonders for my Spanish, and the experience is probably a key reason why I now run a company which provides Spanish lessons for people who want to travel to Spanish-speaking countries - I want people to have the same experience that I did.
Intern Colombia provided experiences throughout my stay that added to my amazing experience. From the Bogotá city tour, to going to watch a Copa Libertadores match live in a stadium in Bogotá, to the socials, my experience was made varied and fulfilling - by organising all of the aspects of these things, the team made everything so easy. I would have felt much less confident trying to organise going to a football match myself and would have potentially missed out on this experience had it not been for the team sorting everything out.
One thing that really drew me to Intern Colombia in the first place was the affordability of the programme compared to some of the other internship programmes out there. Despite being so affordable, you're not at all sold short, and for everything I got out of the programme I would have been happy to pay a lot more than this. The team really always have your best interests at heart and do everything they can to make sure you make the most of your time.
If it's not clear already, anybody who is thinking of travelling to Colombia/ doing an internship in Latin America should strongly consider Intern Colombia!

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
On my first full day in Bogotá I was able to go on a fruit tour organised by Intern Colombia at Paloquemao Market. In the space of a couple of hours I must have tried about 30 different fruits, including things such as chontaduro which I had never seen before!

Thanks to the InternColombia I had an opportunity to find internship in Colombia. It was my the most incredible time. Amazing adventures and friendships for life. From the very beginning, also during internship and at the end I could get support and help at all time. This was very important because I finished my work during dificult time of coronavirus. InternColombia is very professional organization. I recommend it to everyone who dreams of meeting Colombian culture and at the same time gains work experience.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take advantage of every moment you have in Colombia. There is always something interesting to do there :)
