Colombia: Take a taxi whenever possible
As you tour the city, don’t be carefree about strolling around, even during the day, or about lingering in places at night. It’s simply not safe to do so.

Colombia is a country, not a city. What are you talking about?
I had a great time in Colombia visiting Leticia, Amazonas, Cartagena and many other cities. I never felt unsafe. It's really a strange tip to give for a whole country.
Taking taxi's is a good savings tip...but for safety? Come-on! Colombia is a safe place. Like anywhere you're going to have "opportunity zones"....you wouldn't visit Chicago by going straight to the projects...would you?
