Bogota was once the crime capital of the world. Fortunately things change and now there are really only two real dangers in Bogota. The first is that you may not be able to decide which emeralds you want to bring home. There are so many beautiful emeralds mined here that you will find yourself wanting all of them. The other is that you will get stuck in traffic. There is no denying that traffic is a problem for Bogota. Fortunately, the city is improving the roads but more importantly your driver will have a "Plan B" on how to reach your destination and it will be in a comfortable car. This will simply give you more time to obsess on those emeralds. Don't worry, there are plenty of non-emerald things worth exploring in Bogota. From great traditional and contemporary art to an passionate culinary scene -- there is plenty to keep you entertained in this city. Bogota is now only dangerously chic.
