"I was so lucky that a friend told me about InterNations before I came to Bogota. I had the chance to contact many expats there from home."
Michelle Guillemont
"I was a little bit afraid before moving to Colombia - a new language, security issues, no friends. InterNations helped me settle in, though. "

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.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger.
