Parking is simple in many towns in Colombia but in the business and commercial districts of the larger cities, you’ll face more regulation. This usually means the use of parking bays controlled by meters and ticket machines or areas where you cannot park, usually demarcated by white or yellow lines.
In the main cities you’ll find a lot of ‘pay for’ parking and it’s best to use these for safety of your car and yourself. Better still, use a commercial attended parking area or garage where you’ll be a lot safer.
Enforcement of parking is not widespread and it’s only if you cause an obstruction or overstay your ticket by a substantial period that you’ll encounter problems.
Parking concessions for the disabled are limited in Colombia. You’ll find special parking spaces in many of the garages and especially the hotels but they’re often used selfishly by able-bodied drivers. If you need significant help, ask the garage attendant to assist you.
