Villa de Leyva is considered a relatively safe destination in Colombia, especially for tourists. Most areas are well-lit and have a regular presence of police which contributes to a sense of security. However, as in any location, it is advised to be cautious at night. Avoid deserted areas and always stay in places where there are more people around. Be aware of your surroundings and don't display obvious wealth. Confidence also goes a long way in deterring potential threats.
