A wonderful new international terminal would greet you when you land in Bogotá.
Last time I was in Bogotá (3 years ago) the road to the airport - Carrera 26- was unfinished and it had been like that for more than 7 years, the airport was a misery and veeeery old. Now -Feb 2013- I landed in a brand new terminal wich is very efficient and nicely planned.
After disembarking you don't have to walk too long to find the migration area, where to my utmost surprise was ample and contained around 30 counters, ALL of them manned by an agent. I barely waited one minute in the que before being called, the process was very efficient and friendly. I was done in 5 minutes.
After migration you go downstairs and are funneled into a duty free store, nice trick but didn't bite the hook.
After the tourist trap I emerged into a very ample, well litt and perfectly signaled baggage claiming room. There are 6 big carrousels perfectly marked with big screens. To the left there is a clear glass wall where you can the the families and friends waiting for the arrivals, an amazing thing if someone is going to pick you at the airport. They can see you and you can see them, very nice detail. The waiting area has some benches and a great coffee shop wich is open 24/7. Bravo on this, a great idea.
The only inconvenience is that in order to get a little cart to carry your luggage you need to leave a deposit of 2usd or equivalent in Colombian Pesos (totally refundable if you return the cart outside after using it, there are no ATM machines and the exchange booth does not have the best exchange rate in town.
Remember to fill your customs form in the plane, otherwise you loose precious minutes filling one at the entrance to customs. The queues can be a bit long as there are not enough x-ray machines, but is not too bad.
At the time of this writing the taxis do not extend receipts, which is very inconveniente if you are on a business trip and need to keep track of all the expenses for tax purposes.
