It’s just a myth
Some people ask me many times the same thing: Is Bogotá a safe place? because I’ve heard that Bogotá is a dangerous city especially in La Candelaria
Fortunately I’ve had the pleasure to visit other cities in South América and United States as well, and I can tell you the following:
Bogotá is like “big cities” with problems like others, with traffic jams like others and obviously security issues like others, but don’t worry I don’t want to scare you, with these matters because Bogotá is a safe place to come and enjoy!!!.
First of all, when you’re planning to visit a new and unknown city, I recommend first visit the main reference tourism web sites like lonely planet, Nat Geo, Trip advisor or any specialized blog. Talking about Bogotá we suggest: BogotaPass.com or bogotaturismo.gov.co; surely there, you will find valuable information for instance: transportation, tours, survival and safety recommendations, sightseeing places, among other things.
With this valuable information, you can surely avoid some matters than maybe could cause you a bad experience; also a contact only recognized travel agencies with experience in tourism like BogotáPass; remember: “you get what you pay for”
When you arrive remember that Bogotá is located at 2.620 mts over the sea level, therefore if you coming from a lower altitude city, please take it easy because the altitude sickness can be a problem.
