"Do not be naive in Colombia but relax" Colombia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Juan_Gmo

Colombia Warnings and Dangers: 55 reviews and 31 photos

The civil war is confined mainly to rural areas and scarcely in urban areas. But Don´t panic!! This is not Afghanistan or Sierra Leone. Try to be wise and use your common sense: avoid war areas, poor negihbourhoods and late night walks in town centres. Sadly very friendly people or sexy young women in big cities approaching you might be suspicious. But colombians are mainly humble and helpful.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
