The official currency of Colombia is called Colombian Peso (COP). And $1 USD=5000 COP. ATMs are available all throughout the country but my advice to you is to us those are inside the banks.

It is also advisable to withdraw as much as you can because fees for transactions tend to be higher for foreign cars. The maximum amount that you can withdraw will be around 600K COP depending on the bank.
