Cartagena, Colombia - Street scene and cathedral in the Old Town

Solo Travel Destination: Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena, Colombia - and the entire visit I will only respond if you call me Joan Wilder from Romancing the Stone.

Colombia is evolving into a safer, more refined tourist destination. Crime rates are significantly improved, and while the country is less well-trodden than bordering Ecuador, Peru and Panama, it offers everything from beach getaways to colonial city stays (for a bit of both, check out the recently opened Casa San Agustin in Cartagena de Indias). Bogota couple Santiago and Camilla traded in city life to open up Hacienda Bambusa near Armenia, a peaceful hideaway.    #MoreMoneyMoreTravel
