I've been asked to go to Colombia. Five day trip, government-sponsored organisation, to Bogotá, Medellín and Cartagena.
I am aware that the country cannot be considered entirely safe, and there have been kidnappings and ransoms, and there is organised crime connected to the drug trade in certain areas. The UK government advises against travel to certain parts of the country, but not to the proposed destinations. As such, I'm minded to do it, assuming cautious behaviour and a healthy attitude to remaining well on the beaten track. Whole thing is likely to be escorted.
Anyone been there? Any experiences gratefully received.
