But there is a seedier side to this travel-brochure charm. The backpacker hostels that line a picturesque street just outside the old city are in a notorious red-light district and many of the men dozing on benches in a nearby park are not having a siesta, but waiting to pick up sex workers. The man in the sleeveless black t-shirt, smoking a cigarette, is a well-known pimp, she says, and the girl in the tight, yellow dress with the European-looking man in shorts are almost certainly a sex worker and her client.
Even the group of over-dressed teenagers loitering near the entrance to the old city, are probably selling sex. But beyond the walled city and the main hotel strip, Cartagena's inhabitants are still mostly poor, especially those displaced here from other parts of the country by the armed conflict between leftist rebel groups and right-wing paramilitary groups.
The combination of wealthy visitors and desperate locals has given rise to an alarming growth in sex tourism. Cardenas said it was common for male tourists to be approached by waiters, bellhops and taxi drivers offering introductions to sex workers and escort services. Even the drivers of the horse-drawn carriages that ferry tourists around the old city earn a commission for delivering clients to sex clubs.
Every year, Adult looking sex Carthagena organisation convinces about of them to participate in a psycho-social assistance programme that includes testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections STIscounselling, skills training and education about sexual and reproductive health and rights.
The organisation uses field workers like Perez to identify and gain the trust of the children and teenagers before inviting them to the programme, but pimps and abusers have started making use of new technologies to make them less visible. Children who agree to participate in the programme don't necessarily stay off the streets. Many of the children are also hooked on drugs Adult looking sex Carthagena alcohol, given to them by pimps to keep them in the sex trade. Our night tour of Cartagena takes us past a bar in the red-light district, where Perez recognises two girls loitering near the entrance.
The prevalence of HIV among Colombia's general population has remained under one percent, with concentrated epidemics mainly affecting men who have sex with men.
The Caribbean region, however, has seen an increase in heterosexual infections in recent years. Whereas nationally only one out of every four people living with HIV is a woman, on the Caribbean coast the ratio is one in three. According to Ricardo Garcia, UNAIDS country director, the region's macho culture, which makes it socially acceptable for men to have multiple partners, is probably one explanation for the trend, but the impact of sex tourism may be another.
So far, the organisation has only identified three with HIV, but Cardenas said many are afraid to be tested. Condoms are also not always easy for child sex workers to Adult looking sex Carthagena by. Clients also often harbour the illusion that child sex workers are free of STIs and that condoms aren't necessary, said Cardenas. Please send queries on copyright or liability to the UN.
