We are planning to travel Colombia in September this year and would like to visit Cano
Cristales among other places. Our concern is safety of the area. Is it actually safe to go there?
I can not see reason to not be safety there. I wanted to go there but it was in January, too early for to see this beautiful place due the lack of water and therefore even flower. But not at one moment I was wondered or worried me about safety. I mean it is safe there as I know. And that I know because I have one friend there who is a police there so ... my information is correct.
Cano Cristales has been okay in terms of safety for several years now. It has gone from being completely off the radar from when I first visited to a very popular tourist hotspot now. I hope all the new tour operators don't ruin the area...
