Why Colombia?

Originally i had planned on only visiting Venezuela on my first trip to South America.
Fortunately i changed my mind after talking to other travelers in a Posada in Coro. They had just returned from Colombia and convinced me to go.
BUT... is it not too dangerous? What about all those horror stories in the media?
Frankly, i did not care. I just wanted to give it a try, do something unusual.
And guess what, i am still alive and loved every minute i spent in this wonderful country.

    The way you describe cities like Cartagena are the reasons I always come back home.

    I?m very jealous of your Cuidad Perdida trip. I?ve done my fair share of traveling in Colombia but I think that one is a little to much for me as things are now. Thanks for the info and Pictures

    Que suerte que no te perdiste en el camino a Ciudad Perdida! Si no, no pudieramos leer tus cuentos impresionantes y seductores. Excelente!

    Colombia seems quite attractive, but those warning news you can read everyday look so frightening... anyway U surviced, didn't you? Great tips, BTW!

    Agree with you about Cartegena. Breathtaking isn't it? Oooh, I could do with one of those jugos naturales, especially Naranja jugos, slurp... :>
