Traveling colombia in novemberHello out there! I'm going to be traveling in Colombia for 29 days from mid november to mid december. I was considering checking out Venezuela for a little bit in these 29 days, would it be worth it? or should I just stick to Colombia completely? Any can't-miss places that people have visited in Colombia that they can recommend to me? I'm a female solo traveler! Thank you =) Looking forward to the responses!

I was there last November for 24 full days. You can stay more than three months without visiting all the parts. Stay in Colombia. 29 days is not too much! You need to make choices...
If you use your common sense, Colombia is “safe” according you take some precautions.
It’s easy to travel around and you will meet plenty of travellers.

3just stay in colombia...29 days aren't enough to discover this big wonderful country!!
-don't miss bogotaÂ´, medellin and cartagena...u can skip cali which is horrible!In this cities I reccomend to stay in the safe parts.........not candelaria, city centre in medellin and outside the old town or getsemani in cartagena!
- zona cafetera...very beautiful
-I recommend aguada and salamina 3 hs north from manizales
-san gil for sports....and barichara which is close
-when in bogota don't miss guatavita, zipaquiraÂ´and villa de leyva where u can stay as well
-tyrona...don't stay in taganga please is a dirty mess....I would prefer santa marta that is getting better and better
-if u can ..go to la guajira....
and there would be pther parts as valle del causa, popayan , san augustin, desierto de la tatacoa.....but i told u 29 days aren't enough....

4We stayed in Colombia for 3 months and still felt like there were some places we missed. It is a wonderful country with beautiful people, and we never once felt unsafe.
One of the highlights was the Desierto del Tatacoa, a moonlike landscape with fantastic hiking. It is a bit of a hassle to get to (travel to Neiva, and onto Villavieja, where you then have to take a mototaxi into the dessert itself) but worth itin my book. We stayed at La Tranquilidad, which offers private rooms from 30,000 pesos, hammocks for 7,000 and camping for 5,000. The owner, Alexander, is an absolute pleasure and his wife cooks up some of the best food we tasted in all of Colombia...and at a fantastic price.
From Neiva you can travel south to San Agustin, which is a must stop if you enjoy hiking and archaeological sites.
Salento is a nice stop in the coffee region and Jardin is another jewel of the Eje Cafetero.
Enjoy your trip!
