If there is one country you guys MUST visit its COLOMBIA. There still is not a better country OVERALL that has so much to offer. Whether you love Colombian Coffee, Colombian banking or Colombian girls its all good…
I have visited a couple of times now and still yearn for more of the place. They are simply the coolest people I have met in my life. Contrary to what many people believe they are laid back and chilled, not the screaming hyper people many Europeans and (Brits) imagine. I am a laid back guy and chilled out as many of you have seen from
my videos so I get on really well with Colombian people.
Is Colombia SAFE? YES!
Yes! Yes! Yes! It is but the beautiful thing is this is what has kept it untouched from stupid Tourists who would come to the country and mess it up. Our Western Women in our own countries are messed up so it was absolute heaven to enjoy real feminine women who go out of their way to please you. In EVERY way…. Cooking, cleaning decent conversation (although that was my own fault for only having basic spanish)
Anyway guys check out my selfie video of me in Bogota…Wow scary NOT! No crazy people running about with guns shooting each other NADA!
Having travelled all over the world now I can honestly say I have not met a more genuine nice group of people. Now theres other countries like Thailand where people are very nice to you BUT its their culture to be SEEN to be nice and polite. While they can mutter in their own language and laugh at you. Colombians are genuine and straight forward. Frown means somethings wrong. Smile everything is good. That sits well with me as a straightforward Scotsman.
Don’t get me wrong the countryside is worth coming to see; its absolutely stunning. The activities, great biking adventures to be had. I had to think to myself why I
didnt see many foreigners here…. Its because of the bad reputation Colombia has unjustly received over the years because of the drug period in the 80s and also the Marxist rebels hiding in the jungle causing trouble. Well let me tell you that’s over with. Its good for them because they are very decent and for us foreigners who want to visit.
Third world country?
Colombia is sooo diverse it boggles the mind. In the north of the country on the coast, known to Colombians as “La Costa” is Barranquilla and Cartagena. I visited both and enjoyed everything they had to offer. Be warned though its HOT! Hotter than hell…..I was struggling with the humidity more than in Africa LOL
