You're just throwing yourself right into it!

Hmmm, I can't think of anyone off the top of my head... Try using the forums on TripAdvisor http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g2940...8-Colombia.html or

Couchsurfing.com if you don't find anyone on this forum.

haha ok sounds great.. im polite and talk to anyone so im sure i can sit in a nice bar or something and chat away smile.gif

Quick question... not a sex tourist or nothing like that but just out of interest... I know everyone has there own thoughts BUT generally how do colombian women feel about Foreign men IE English man? just interesting to know, as obviously you cant beat meeting a lovely latin women, and have her show you around everywhere... smile.gif

Thanks again
