I really want to travel to Colombia with by boyfriend who is from fusagasuga at the end of this year. i am from Australia, but with Maltese heritage so i dont look like a gringa haha. anyway, i have been reading the travel tips on various sites and they seem to portray Colombia as dangerous etc.

However i have heard mixed accounts from Colombians in Australia and Australians that have travelled there. I am really keen to go and i would like to get some feedback from people who have travelled to colombia.

Gracias

Fusagasuga economic has been damaged by the new road that prevents traffic to pass thru Fusagasuga in order to save time on the way to Silvania, Melgar and elsewhere.

FUSA is a little boring yes. when you go you might enjoy being with your boyfriends family, I was there and the family of my friend treated me like family. other than that do not stay there too long, your boyfriend will probably not want to stay there too long either.

I´ve been in Fusa 5 times since I arrived in Colombia and that´s just 8 months ago, (some of my in laws live there). True it´s not a burgeoning metropolis, but the climate is pretty good (certainly hotter than bogota!!) and contrary to what was said earlier, the new road they are building between Bog and Fusa (about 60-80km) should improve the economy there, in fact because of the climate and the cost of living it could very well become a commuting satellite city for Bogota, as ColombianGringo pointed out...

To answer your primary question though, the road from Bog to Fusa is now very safe, so no worries there (well apart from the lunatic bus drivers, but they are (literally!) impossible to avoid anywhere in Colombia).

As for safety itself in Fusa, I´d be hard pressed to pass for a Latino, but I was safe enough in Fusa as I was with locals there all the time!! but (like everywhere!) I saw a few places in Fusa I only like seeing in rear view mirrors!!

The road is already built and it detours way before touching Fusagasuga, so that means less traffic going thru Fusagasuga. The terminal is about the biggest thing in Fusa.
