For many years Bogotá and Colombia have had a misperception of security very far from reality. Even if the dramatic security situation back in the 80’s and 90’s cannot be denied, nowadays Colombia faces a completely different reality as a consequence of the different changes implemented from 2001 and a process of transformation. An evolution of 16 years and solid facts allows us to say that the only risk of coming to Bogotá is wanting to stay.
