Is Bogota safe to travel?


in Bogota, Colombia by @jackgopack |  | 6 comments

HI All!

Considering Bogota for a while but recent reporting indicates quite a few robbery related deaths and the fact that US State Dept personnel and their families are not allowed to use inter- or intra-city bus transportation, with flights mandatory between Colombian cities. Anyone have any insight as to the current reality vs such reporting?

I know they often donโ€™t match but since our nomadlist.com rates Bogota safety as โ€œbadโ€, I would greatly appreciate anyone providing a current or recent boots on the ground status report as to this effect.

Jack

    Nice city. Need cash in many places still hence long lines for ATMs. Safe. Pretty. Goes from cloudy to sunny to cloudy to sunny. Take a bike tour to see the city. I stay in Chapinero which was nice. There a gym called Body Tech and they'll let you work out there for free your first time. No water fountains though so bring your own.

  • Cartagena

    I was there for one week and stayed in Bocagrande, about a 10 minute taxi ride from the Walled City. Pros of Cartagena: Inexpensive locale, reliable and fast internet, good weather (if you like it hot), not terribly crowded (aside from Walled City), beauty/history/nightlife of Walled City. Cons: Local beaches are average at best and riddled with vendors who accost visitors non-stop, street vendors are less pushy but everywhere, fluency in Spanish is very helpful (not really a con, just is),

    We loved Medellin! Poblado is a magical enclave, unlike most of Medellin. Amazing restaurants, lots of nature, friendly people, gorgeous women, fast internet, tons of places to work.

    Everything (and everyone haha) seems to be old. Not a kind of place to have fun and enjoy. Food is great, but pricey โ€” you can find the same or even better for a cheaper price in Buenos Aires. Legalization of marijuana isnโ€™t something good to celebrate in my opinion and just created a weird environment. There are better places to go.
