Colombia has to be one of the south american countries with the worst undeserved reputation...you're most likely going to die of a car crash there than being kidnapped. I have driven extensively around Colombia without any issues. Colombians will make you feel quite welcome everywhere you go
hire driver in Colombia
I agree but it's always a good idea to have someone local taking you places. You can easily hire a taxi driver with your hotel or villa you stay. Prices range from 350 ($25) to 650 (~$52) pesos for a whole day. Trust me, you'll feel a lot safer having a local drive around...not that Colombia is more dangerous than the states but just saying
Dont mean to knock this idea of hiring a driver but I would not hire just any driver that wasn't recommended to me because you could easily be set up to be robbed or even worse. Like the last poster said, do go thru your hotel when hiring a driver. Even better, find out what driver other tourists are hiring. Good luck
