As Colombia becomes an acceptable travel destination and backpackers continue to pave the way for more conservative visitors, this week we take a glimpse into the world of the independent traveler and how they choose to travel when they come here. Who better than Inge Swinnen, a belgian national living in Puerto Colombia, who is shortly publishing the 2nd edition of her guide to Colombia appropriately entitled “Colombia Facil” (www.colombiafacil.com). Available in English and in Spanish and as an Ebook you too can benefit from the countless hours and thousands of miles this intrepid young lady has covered to make this guide a reality. Found in participating businesses, Colombia Facil is leaves no stone unturned.
