On of our Twitter followers has asked for advice on safety for two girls travelling in South and Central America… Here’s her plea:
“is it safe for two girls to go to Colombia/Central America what are the dangers?”
Our experts said:
“Colombia is full of travellers these days – the Caribbean Coast is especially easy to get around and lots to do. Travellers should always be more alert at border crossings and in Central America, I’d say parts of El Salvador, Honduras and remote areas in Panama would definitely be more challenging than Costa Rica, Belize or Guatemala which are more established tourist destinations. Nicaragua would be a good bet if you’re feeling more adventurous.
