Just to verify, US citizens do not need a visa to visit Colombia, correct? I've read a bit online that says visas are not required, but I just wanted to channel someone's personal experience to make sure.

That's correct. No visa required if you stay less than 90 days.

Dang. I bought OSL-MIA on that BA/AA/IB/AY sale and even though SFO was cheaper and better CPM than MIA, was afraid of the prices ex-SFO.

Should have done that SFO and pair it with SFO-BOG-SFO x 6!

Is there a departure tax that one has to pay other than what's already included in the ticket for a less than 60 day stay?

I am just about finishing up my trip. For those headed there one suggestion I have is to not exchange too much money into pesos(I did only $20 for local buses and museum entrance fees). Exchangers at the airport are bad and you get 2150-2750 pesos per dollar while exchange rate is 3150~. I heard Banks in city are also pretty bad in exchange rates.
The best way to take advantage of the fallen peso is to use US credit cards at every possible instance. I spite of any transaction fees by issuer you will get closer to exchange rate. Every time you use the card they ask for id and my us license was good.
I even used my US uber account for my trip from airport and the ride was $8.

Is this deal completely dead now? I'm not finding anything, but wonder if I'm just missing options in early 2016.
