Colombia has quite a negative reputation, I know. I had the same negative stereotypes about the country before I lived there that many of my friends and family still have. So, with what you know about Colombia in this moment, would you go?
I am biased, but I think Colombia is a great travel destination for almost everyone (it’s not just for the backpacking crowd). I encourage you to learn more about Colombia here, and of course, whether you are considering traveling to Colombia or not, I encourage you to read Misspelled Paradise–for either an idea of what to expect when going, or for a little luxurious armchair traveling.
Next week, I’ll be posting about some of the top places to visit, depending on what you first think of when you think of Colombia.
