    The Quindio is Colombia's smallest “departamento” or province, but it is without a doubt one which is packed with many attractions. Every village in Quindio is worthy of a day trip. Recently I visited Salento, with side trips to nearby Cocora valley and finishing up in Filandia. Salento appears like a mirage from the main highway (the “autopista ...

    Apartment blocks are growing like weeds in big Colombian cities. More and more Colombians are able to afford them thanks to government subsidies to lower income families. Wealthy investors buy scores of more pricey units which they then put on the rental market. Despite the growing supply, there is still a housing shortage and prices as well as ren ...
