How it works:
- Due to attacks, the Tourist Police has been warning visitors about crime and assault at backpacker hostels located in Candelaria.
Places to beware:
- Bogota: Candelaria
What to do:
- The area is safe in the day, but can be dodgy at night. It is also near some slums/sketchy neighbourhoods, though with common sense, you are unlikely to face problems.
- Alternatively, in Bogota, one safe area to stay in is Zona Rosa.
