I live in Bogota and I have traveled around the world and know that Bogota is not that safe but it is still super great city to live in, most of it is safe but there are some areas which are a bit unsafe but Colombia in general is very safe.

I live in Bogotá. It's such a nice place. I cannot tell you it's the safest city, but it's safe enough to live without worrying with a minimum of preacautions. As happens in the most of the cities, there are some areas more dangerous than others... You just need to ask about it ;)

I'm Colombian and live in the U.S. and I would like to say a lot of South America is not safe. Especially the capital, but also I'm not a little bitch like #harvey. And im not stupid enough to go to sketchy area making myself a target.(:
