He was also the Colombian ambassador to London and to the Holy See.

Darío Echandía was designated as acting president of Colombia on four different occasions: From 1943 to 1944 due to the temporary absence of Alfonso López Pumarejo, in 1944 due to a kidnapping attempt against Pumarejo, briefly in 1960, and briefly in 1967.
