With Cartagena looking to increase foreign tourism, how much of their crime problems, especially violent robberies and "Paseos Americanos" kidnappings until your ATM is drained, is the government covering up?

Is it really safe to visit on vacation if someone exercises reasonable caution? e.g., Wear no jewelry, not carry any cell phones or expensive cameras, etc. and avoid the slums?

Your site on Cartagena really changed from January to February. It was the safest place in South America, Now, it's one of the worst places. How come? Rents skyrocketed too. How is someone earning $300 per month paying $600 per month rent? It's obvious that the majority of your contributors are retired tourists and not the native people. How can we change that? ...Have fun
