Vaping In Colombia
Is Vaping Legal In Colombia?
Vaping is legal in Colombia. Vaping is treated the same as smoking. You can vape anywhere that smoking is permitted.
Can I Take My Vape To Colombia?
Yes you can take your vape device to Colombia. If you’re travelling by bus you can store and transport your device in your checked luggage. Or in the bags you take with you onto the bus.
If you’re flying into Colombia you will need to follow standard international airline rules for transporting liquids and lithium batteries. Vape devices use lithium batteries and these should never be placed in your checked baggage. The battery component should always be with you in your carry on bags.
When travelling by air your liquid vape juice must be placed in your checked baggage. All vape juice bottles must be 100ml or less. And each bottle should be individually sealed in a clear plastic ziplock bag. Don’t take the liquids with you in your carry on bags.
Steps to take your vape to Colombia via airline
- Make sure all vape juice bottles are 100ml or less;
- Individually wrap each vape juice bottle in a clear plastic ziplock bag;
- Place the individually wrapped juice bottles into your checked luggage;
- Place the device and any lithium batteries into your carry on bags.
Where Can I Vape In Colombia?
You can vape anywhere that smoking is permitted. Don’t vape where smoking is prohibited. Personally, I just watch where the smokers go and and follow their lead. If people are smoking in a particular area I will vape in that same area.
Can I vape in My Colombian accommodation?
Some accommodation providers still allow smoking in Colombia. Where smoking is permitted you can vape. However some Airbnb hosts may not allow smoking. In the event smoking is prohibited in a particular accommodation, you should see our article on vaping in airbnb accommodation.
Where Can I Buy Vapes In Colombia?
The larger cities in Colombia have stores selling vapes. Though most are online e-commerce businesses and have less than ideal shipping and customer service.
I would recommend looking for physical stores in Bogota and Medellin. Because of the digital nomad communities in these locations there are quite a few physical vape stores that can be found using google maps.
I’ve also found recently that a lot of the small supermarkets and 24hr convenience stores in Bogota are now selling vapes. The prices range around the $30,000COP ($7USD) for a disposable vape. Yet I get most of my disposable vapes delivered by Rappi.
