Colombia

Crime levels in Colombia are high and political unrest common, particularly in the capital, Bogotá, and in rural areas. Robbery, assault, theft and card fraud are also common. Be wary of strangers offering you food and drink – visitors are often drugged and robbed.

We recommend

that you avoid buses and travel by taxi instead. Book taxis from the hotel and restaurant, and never hail a taxi on the street.

Hepatitis A and B, yellow fever, malaria, TBC and typhoid, as well as waterborne diseases and infections carried by insects are common. Drink bottled water only.

During the hurricane season, June to November, there is a risk of flooding and landslides. Volcanic eruptions are also common.
