Dear Participants:

Below please find final instructions for the meeting in Bogota.

Airport arrival

There will someone at the international gates exit waiting for everyone, with signs.

After you pick up your luggage and pass customs, exit the gates and you will be greeted by a mass of people. Do not leave the fences to the street until you see the sign with your name and event signals (Workshop Universidad de Los Andes or something like it). If for some reason you cant find anyone, get lost, or arrive in a different flight from the one we have, turn to your right within those fences and go to a taxi service window where you will give the hotel name and address (below), and they should issue a ticket with the address. The ride should take about 30-45 minutes depending on traffic. The ride should be around US$10-12.

Do not take a taxi in the street outside of the airport, only these waiting in line and taking these tickets from the authorized taxi service. Again, this is only if you have missed the connection with your assigned airport pick-up.
