In the English-language travel and lifestyle media, Colombia doesn't get a lot of play. In fact, it's been regarded for years and years now as something of a no-go zone. You can go right ahead and blame violence and kidnapping.
Given this background, I was interested to note the splashy attention given Colombia in the April issues of both Monocle and Wallpaper. The former covers the property outlook in Cartagena's El Centro 'hood, while Wallpaper churns out a 14-page feature on Bogotá.
A coincidence, perhaps, but I'll be surprised if travel forecasting types don't chat a bit more about Colombia over the next year.
