As of 2010 there has been no violence in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in many, many years. Organized operators guide tours to the Lost City and beyond. I am investing in a small farm and eco-tourism business based in Minca, a 30-minute ride up the mountains from Santa Marta. Coming soon: English, Spanish, German & Italian-speaking guides to take you safely throughout the region (and country) so that you can learn the magic of Colombia...

No conozco Colombia pero se me hace facinante! En mi pais tamben ha brotado la iseguridad y el conflicto pero sigue siendo un pais hermoso, al igual que Colombia. Tengo un amigo muy lindo en Bogota y espero algun dia poder ir a visitar.
Especialmente me he quedado encantada con Santa Marta, es un paraiso ese lugar. Saludos a todos en Colombia....

When I lived in the Santa Marta area, it was a town of about 40,000 people. Today (2008) it is over 1/2 million and still growing. It is a beautiful city and must be visited. I lived in a town called Sevilla, growing bananas for export. It was a great life. Good fishing off the coast.

Hi! Im from Colombia...
I´ve got the chance to
go to the Sierra Nevada...
Its very nice...
The violence in my country its true..
Its sad... but most of the armed conflict
takes place in those natural places...
But don´t get fear into coming to
Colombia...Bogota is a city like New York...
we got Hard Rock Cafe, Johnnie Walker Blue Label...
and nothing happens...
Come to Colombia!
And its true... the best Marihuana in the world grows at the top of the Sierra Nevada mountain...
the indians protect mother earth...

De la guérilla dans la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta? Ce Français a dû rêver! Il y avait des paramilitaires mais la zone a été "nettoyée" déjà vers 2003 grâce à la politique de saécurité du président Uribe. La Sierra Nevada est un lieu très sûr.

Congratulations for those breathtaking views !! Impressive.
Santa Marta is the most important "take-off" on earth (more than Himalaya). 40km from the sea as the crow flies, and you are lose to 6000m high... to bad guerilla make the area dangerous.
