From what I hear, Colombia has been safe for many years now because the major rebel groups have either disbanded, (ELN) or are in serious negotiations with the government. (FARC) It is my understanding that kidnapping have been renounced by all. Colombians are about the nicest people you'll meet anywhere, with premier doses of culture and scenery.
Good luck amigos.
