Getting tourist board information right before and even during your vacation in Colombia can really help you benefit from the most up-to-date details about the region you are visiting. It is particularly important when visiting Colombia as the political climate has not been stable in this country and at times, travel is not recommended for American or Canadian citizens. Safety is the biggest concern and travelers are responsible for remaining current with the information provided from their own government regarding the safety in Colombia prior to planning a trip there.

The United States Government has a Consular Information page dedicated Colombia which is full information regarding the current political climate in the country, safety and health concerns as well as the law differences. Checking with these government  requirements is absolutely essential. Entry-requirements in Colombia are different than many areas in the world and they are often times changing. The U.S. government provides a list of requirements on the Consular Information page. Please note that there is currently a travel warning issued by the U.S. government regarding travel to and within Colombia.
