I'm taking online classes this fall and am looking for an international climbing destination with internet access. Tickets are cheap to Colombia and Venezuela, which is the primary attraction to these places. But what is the internet access like here in proximity to climbing? If possible I might try to pick up a part time job teaching english or any other job if available. Any thoughts or opinions appreciated. Or other ideas for destination with a cheaper plane ticket?
Sam- Thanks for the input. Was the Internet any better in nearby towns that were bigger? I may try to teach English in a place like tunja. Do you think I would get more reliable Internet there? Sounds like a pain in the ass doing classes on your phone, but if I have to so be it!
I spent some time in Colombia over the winter. The internet in Suesca is pretty shoddy. It would always go down just when I needed it. I ended up buying a 3g plan for my phone. It was very reliable and never went down on me. I took all my classes on it.
It depends where you go in Suesca. If you are down by the lower strip it's pretty bad but if you go up into the actual town it's usually very reliable.
Just don't go when the kids are off school as they like to game online.
Tunja is a larger town and will have even better internet.
