Is it safe in cali

I wanted to go to Cali the end of Feb never been there but dont have a problem going on adventures. Have always enjoyed Mexico and felt comfortable and I mean bus trips inter Mexico. However, I would like to be safe. I work for a Airline and can travel to several places in South America. I would not be in Cali proper but in El Cerrito which is where the timeshare is, any ideas on safty other than common sense...

Thanks Joy Sillysam01@msn.com

I have enjoyed my visits to this beautiful city and friendly people,

great scenery and climate. If you are too scared to travel in Latin America, stay home with your Mommy and security blanket. It is far more life-threatensing and dangerous in

parts of Chicago, L.A., Detroit, Newark, ad nauseum here

in the U.S.

I too work for an airline and have travelled throughout Colombia. Stick to the cities and you'll have no worries.

Some of the rural roads should be avoided at night, especially in the occupied areas in the northwest and southeast.

Cali is beautiful, they are very friendly to Americans, the prices are great and the women....take your breath away.

I am Colombian living in Canada, so, if you go to Cali, you will have a lot of fun, good weather and woman are just not from earth.. (from heaven).. just some standard advice you must consider any part in the world:

Do not wear too expensive eye glasses. You may loose them easily. No jewlery and stay where tourits go. You will be safe and will have a lot of good things to learn about Colombia and salsa music and Cali in general.

Have fun.. enjoy it.

How about Medellin? Is that a safe place and worthwhile to visit?

Dude. Forget Cali. Go to Medellin and have real fun, meet gorgeous girls and party like an animal. The weather is much better and it is much safer. Also don���t miss LLanogrande a place very close to Medellin where you can party, eat great food and enjoy great views.

Good luck.
