I have been to colombia about 6 times, and i wish more people would visit this country, the country is immediety associated with kidnapping and drugs, but why does the news never meantion the beauty that is in this country? the mountains, the fauna, the people...There are many things to do and see in colombia from Bogota , which is a typical city - i recomend visits to the gold museam, simon bolivas house and monstarate (wheather you hike up - i did it and i did not have any problems, but best to go with people who know the way or on sundays when many people go up, or take the lift) to travelling to the cost of Cartengena and Santa Marta which have beautiful views and lovely climate, trips to san Agustin are always worthwhile to learn about pre-colombian history.
The food is wonderful and cheap , and you get complete meals started from soup and main course, please try plaitain, areapas, and all colombian cuisine.The people are friendly and warm and are almost all willing to help you out and give you advice on where to go.. if you find your self ill you can bet there will be thousands of colombian people recommending what to drink or eat to feel well, there is a warmth about the country and people you dont get anywhere else.
I am not saying this country is without trouble, but which country is, take all the normal precuations, watch your bag, dont wear jewerelly, and just generally be cafeful and you will have a enjoyable visit.
