Colombia: Take a taxi whenever possible

As you tour the city, don’t be carefree about strolling around, even during the day, or about lingering in places at night. It’s simply not safe to do so.

    Taking taxi's is a good savings tip...but for safety? Come-on! Colombia is a safe place. Like anywhere you're going to have "opportunity zones" wouldn't visit Chicago by going straight to the projects...would you?

    I had a great time in Colombia visiting Leticia, Amazonas, Cartagena and many other cities. I never felt unsafe. It's really a strange tip to give for a whole country.

    Colombia is a country, not a city. What are you talking about?
