    In the wake of the scandal involving the Lonely Planet Colombia book, I began searching for another guidebook about Colombia that would be current, well-researched, and honest. I chose Bradt's guide mostly because there is not a whole lot of current information about Colombia. All in all, I've been quite pleased. The book is a little short on "nuts and bolts" information for my taste - things like bus schedules, costs, and times - but is very heavy on interesting sidebars and in depth examinatio In the wake of the scandal involving the Lonely Planet Colombia book, I began searching for another guidebook about Colombia that would be current, well-researched, and honest.

The book is a little short on "nuts and bolts" information for my taste - things like bus schedules, costs, and times - but is very heavy on interesting sidebars and in depth examination of what makes Colombia the amazing destination that it is. The book seems to be honest to what I remember of Colombia - from ten years ago - as well as informative enough that I plan on making the Bradt guide my main resource when I'm back in country next year. A very solid travel guide.

    Colombia only has 2 well-known travel books - the Lonely Planet and this one (published new in 2008 and it reads quite up to date.) I have been skimming this one and it's obvious the author really knows Colombia and her voice is evident in the writing which makes it more interesting. It also seems to have quite a bit more detail and recommendations than the Lonely Planet (not that LP is bad, it's just not as good.) I will definitely start recommending the Bradt guide to people who come to visit Colombia only has 2 well-known travel books - the Lonely Planet and this one (published new in 2008 and it reads quite up to date.)

    I didn't read the whole thing, but the parts on Cartagena and Bogota were pretty helpful. One major note: the book is only a few years old, but the prices are already very out of date, double everything you read!
