I will be in Colombia from the 1st of June and there roughly a month, my plans to go to Barranquilla, Santa Marta (ciudad perdida), Cartagena, Medellin and Bogota.

Has any one got any first hand advice and tips on places to stay and shit to do? are decent hostels wishful thinking?

apart from going to the lost city in Santa Marta the rest of my times free so any tips would be cool!

I don't particularly like Barranquilla, but everywhere you mention is firmly on the Gringo Trail with lots of hostels, cheap hotels and all the usual tourist services. None of those places are exotic destinations, there are loads of tourists.

Pick up a guide book to start, then you can you come back with specific questions.
