BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) – Colombia’s tourism industry is recovering, but there are still thousands of tourists a year who have never been to the country’s most popular destinations.
There is an irony in Colombia, which has a population of just under 10 million, which is home to some of the world’s highest-profile tourist attractions, and which has an estimated 10 million foreign tourists annually.
It’s a situation that many Colombians, particularly those who come from the United States, have been forced to cope with.
Colombia, home to around 100 million people, has suffered from a decades-long surge in tourism spending which has helped to lift living standards, but also left many locals in the capital Bogota struggling.
The country’s capital, Bogota, was ranked among the world 10 most expensive cities in 2016, with more than $1 billion spent there, according to the website of the Economist Intelligence Unit, a consultancy.
Its capital city, Bogotá, is also home to Colombia’s oldest city, Cusco, which was the capital of ancient Inca empire.
The city is known for its colonial architecture, with its high-rise, high-tide resort of El Alto.
The resort has also become a hub for a burgeoning industry of hotel and restaurant owners, and its main street is the main tourist street.
Colonial architecture is seen at El Alto’s old colonial architecture.
The government has promised to spend $30 billion in infrastructure projects and create a million jobs over the next decade.
But while the country has been doing a better job of promoting tourism, the problem remains that many of the countrys most popular sites, especially its top tourist attractions are still closed to foreigners.
A lack of facilities and a lack of infrastructure are the main reasons why some Colombians remain on the sidelines, according of a survey carried out by Colombia’s Ministry of Tourism.
It found that 30 percent of those surveyed said they do not know if they can visit their favourite spots due to poor infrastructure.
Many people, especially those from the wealthier regions of the city, still prefer to stay in hotels or stay in resorts, which often attract a high number of foreign tourists.
For many people, they have to make do with the best hotels and restaurants in the city for now, but they are finding it difficult to find enough places to stay for their holiday.
Many of the hotels in the region have shut down.
Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos has announced plans to make some of its more popular destinations more accessible to foreigners by opening up some tourist spots to foreigners, and opening up more sites to local residents.
A large area of the resort town of El Pintor has become a popular tourist destination for Colombian travellers.
But some locals complain that the government is not doing enough to improve the quality of life for them and others.
“Colombians don’t want to see their country deteriorate,” said Jose Rangel, an owner of a restaurant.
“They want to stay at home.
We don’t know how we can improve our lives, because of the lack of investment and investment in the tourism industry.”
Tourism is still relatively low in Colombia at around $3 billion a year, but this figure is rising, with the country having more than 30 million visitors.
The latest survey found that the number of tourists to Colombia has increased by 16 percent to more than 1 million annually in 2016 from less than 800,000 a year ago.
More than 80 percent of the visitors surveyed said the country needs to improve its infrastructure and services, and to create a new generation of tourists.
