Safety and Security - Terrorism
There is a high threat from terrorism. Continued, indiscriminate attacks targeting government buildings, public transport, public spaces, and other areas frequented by foreigners occur throughout Colombia.
In many areas of Colombia, the security situation can change very quickly and you should asses the security situation before travelling in Colombia and pay close attention to warnings issued by the Colombians. In general, the more remote the area, the greater the potential threat to your safety. You should be particularly cautious and vigilant during any major events taking place in the country.
Attacks are not limited to Bogotá and although the terrorist threat in most urban areas is not as high as it once was, it is still very real and could occur at any time.
Other major attacks have included:
•On 15 May 2012, an explosive device was attached to a vehicle in northen Bogota. There were some fatalities and many people were injured.
•On 2 February 2012, an attack on a police station in Villa Rica in western Colombia killed six and injured approximately twelve more.
•On 1 February 2012, a vehicle bomb attack on a police station in the southern city of Tumaco killed seven and injured approximately 70 more.
•On 5 October 2011 a grenade was thrown into a restaurant in Bogota. Four people were injured.
•On 15 August 2011, two people were killed and another six were injured when an unidentified object exploded on a bus travelling on the outskirts of the Colombian capital, en route to Villavicencio.
•On 16 June 2011, a satchel bomb exploded in Bogotá damaging nearby buildings.
•On 30 November 2010 there was a car bomb attack in Colombia’s Huila province. Three police officers and a civilian were killed and 16 other people wounded. Authorities attribute the attack to guerrillas of the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia).
•On 21 Oct 2010 the Colombian authorities foiled a car bomb attack directed at the National Administrative Centre in Bogota.
•On 12 August 2010, a car bomb exploded near the studios of Caracol Radio Station in northern Bogotá injuring nine.

Safety and Security - Security - Crime
Despite improvements in security, we advise visitors to exercise a high degree of caution in Colombia because of the high threat of terrorism and criminal activity.
Street crime is a particular problem in major cities. You should avoid unnecessary travel to deprived areas of all Colombian cities.
We advise against all but essential travel to rural areas bordering Panama, Venezuela and Ecuador; the town of San José del Guaviare and the surrounding areas; the rural areas of Cauca, Valle del Cauca and Huila and to the Parque Nacional Natural de La Macarena in the department of Meta. We also advise against all but essential travel to Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the town of Buenaventura. These areas are particularly dangerous due to the significant presence of illegal armed groups and significant levels of coca cultivation.
There are a number of illegal armed groups operating throughout Colombia, especially in rural areas. Many of them are involved in illegal drugs trade (e.g. the “Aguilas Negras” (Black Eagles) and the ELN). If it is essential that you travel to areas that are remote or reported to be dangerous, you are advised to seek professional security advice and make arrangements for your security throughout your visit. You should seek up-to-date advice from the local authorities before each stage of your journey.
May the force be with you
