Ask yourself, whether you´d be concerned with visiting Washington D. Probably not, because even though it is often the “murder capital of America,” you would feel safe because you would only visit and stay where it is safe. You will only be staying at the best and safest neighborhoods. This will be a scenic trip of the women of Colombia visiting you in secure surroundings.
Another key factor to consider is that most of the murder and kidnapping involve politics, drugs and guerrilla warfare.
While Barranquilla is a business city and not a tourist destination (except during the Carnival), it is between two cities that are tourist destinations and receives extra protection as a result.
The few roads along the coast allow for the searching of automobiles to prevent trouble from entering the area.
The duty tax to the receiver can be more than the value of the gift.
If your fiancée is unable to pay the tax, they will not return your package.
A good breeze during the dry season keeps the weather comfortable.With the aid of American dollars Colombia has been capturing and killing guerrillas and making a significant dent in the kidnapping and murder rate.You can rest assured that you will be well-guided and thus avoid any increase in risk that would be harmful to you or your experienced personal assist who will always be at your side.Understand that while Colombia is more dangerous than the U. there is a very small-to-insignificant chance of being a crime victim.I do not feel the slightest concern with my safety in Colombia because I only go and do what reasonable men would go and do, as will you.The women also understand that we are making or reviewing the recommendations of where and where not to go, so you will never be placed in any risk. The weather is humid and hot year round, but a frequent Caribbean breeze keeps it tolerable.So you needn´t have to have security concerns on your mind. Daytime temperatures average 88F and nighttime lows average 76F with little variation throughout the year.It also prevent the growing of cocaine which requires more rainfall than the region provides. Colombia leads the world in kidnapping, but it´s not of Americans. Unexpected visitors whose routine are unknown are not targets.The only Americans that find harm are the ones that go outside into the country as if they were backpacking in Europe.The mail service in Colombia is very unreliable; theft and lateness are common problems. For mailing documents to your fiancée, Fed Ex and UPS usually offer better service and both can at times provide three-day service.However, I recommend that you do not mail any gifts to Colombia.
