Puerto Salgar (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpweɾto salˈɣar]) is a municipality and town of Colombia in the department of Cundinamarca. It came to international attention when the US ambassador in Colombia announced the Palanquero Air Base had entered a recertification process, possibly in order to host US military personnel as a replacement to the Manta Air Base.[1] As of July 2009, negotiations were ongoing.[2]
