Bogotá Expat Guide
A Sprawling City of Secrets in Colombia
Bogota may not have the reputation of some of its South American rivals, such as Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires, but few visitors to the Colombian capital would fail to be impressed or say that it doesn't rank alongside them. A bustling, lively city filled with art, culture, cuisine, and music awaits any potential expatriate, so it's no wonder that so many choose to make their homes here in fields such as energy, communications, and technology. Bogota is often relatively safe for expatriates, but high levels of crime in the city and Colombia generally means that expats should take extra precautions and get some local knowledge before heading out. Checking out the guide articles and forum here on InterNations would be a great start.
