Are you crazy saying its safe for an American to go to Columbia? Maybe if you are Columbian with family there, but if you are an obvious gringo its a bad idea. Full scale conflict and many guerillas would love nothing more than to kidnap an American. They sell kidnapp insurance for Americans travelling abroad and the most expensive in the world is Iraq. Most expensive in the Americas is Columbia than Brazil.

It is really safe, the colombian army is present in every little town in the coast, there has been a lot of tourism these days, for cheap lodging and a guide to surf spots contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

You can fly from Medellín or Quibdó by ADA, Satena or La de Oro airlines in small airplanes. It is important to have your place to stay reserved before you go. Some seasons the small lodge are full. And only three has english guides. If you need more info just write.

Although colombia is the most beautiful country I have been to in Latin america, its also very dangerous. I have traveled there several times as a delegate to the US Embassy. Although the FARC has nothing personnely against Americans, you are a target if you look Gringo or are percieved as having money. A testement to this is the three US contractors still being held by the FARC for three years. Hopefully the Colombian government can get their shit together because a lot of people are dying to surf in Colombia (Choco State). Sorry if I offended, it is simply the truth.
