So, a friend and I are thinking of going to Colombia (Bogota) the second week of June. We are both American, he is fair skinned and redhead and speaks no Spanish, I am fair skinned but w/ dark features and speak some Spanish. He is a flight attendant and goes to Bogota often as he tends to have layovers there but he’s never really ventured out of the hotels he stays at; I have NEVER been to Colombia. Any other time in history I’d be completely comfortable going to Colombia with no problems (aside from exercising basic common sense) but during this political unrest with neighboring Venezuela I wasn’t sure if it’d be the best time to go to South America, particularly Colombia due to its close proximity to Venezuela. Does anyone have any insight on this? Has anyone who’s gone to Colombia recently experienced anything not so positive because of this issue or is it a non-issue on Colombia (at least for now), and might it be in June? Lol.
