Dangers & Annoyances

Ongoing troubles in neighboring Colombia have made border towns such as Lago Agrio havens for Colombian guerrillas, antirebel paramilitaries and drug smugglers. Do not cross into Colombia from here. In town, bars can be risky and side streets unsafe, so stick to the main drag (especially at night) or take a taxi to restaurants further out. Tourists rarely have problems.
