Coming to Colombia? A good guidebook - or a couple - will truly help make your trip more pleasant. (And a guidebook, chock full of useful information, costs just about the same as that cappuccino and cookie you'll buy in the airport!) Compared to other countries in South America, Colombia is a relative newcomer when it comes to tourism. When I first arrived in 2002, much of the country was off-limits - or at the very least, had its security risks. It's astonishing to think about the fear that Colombians lived with back then. Today the country is in a much better place. While there are still isolated pockets in the country that are off-limits (they're not in my guidebook!), so much of Colombia has opened up, and is welcoming international visitors, with friendly smiles, today. But despite its steadily growing popularity, you will never feel part of the tourist hordes here: Colombia remains relatively undiscovered when compared to countries such as Mexico, Peru and Ecuador. You may even feel like a pioneer! And another thing, your choice of Colombia - it makes an impact! Tourism, responsible with communities and the environment, can bring about opportunity, prosperity, and can be a bridge between peoples. So thanks for considering my book, I hope that it will be useful to you, and most of all hope that you have a wonderful time in this beautiful country.¡Buen viaje!
