Colombia Tourism and the Sex Tourism Industry article Colombia, known for its beautiful beaches, can also be a hotbed for prostitution.
But the country has been hit hard by a new wave of sex tourism in recent years, as tourists flock to the Caribbean nation for its rich cultural and recreational resources.
The country is now the destination for hundreds of thousands of foreign tourists, who are often attracted by its vibrant beaches, tropical climates and exotic cuisine.
But it’s also become a haven for those who want to get away with sex.
Colombia has seen an increase in the number of sex trafficking cases over the past year, with the number reported to be between 100 and 400 per day, according to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein.
It’s not just the tourists who are vulnerable to human trafficking, though.
The country’s tourism industry is being affected by the rising numbers of sex workers and the growing demand for sex work, especially in rural areas.
A survey by the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC), which focuses on trafficking in women and girls, found that a large percentage of Colombia’s sex trafficking victims are female.
A majority of victims were girls and young women between the ages of 14 and 25.
According to a U.S. State Department report, Colombia has the third highest number of women of trafficking victims in the world.
The report also found that women make up the majority of the sex workers at brothels and escort agencies, with another 18 percent working at brothel and escort houses.
The report also showed that Colombia has a high rate of forced marriage, with around 8,000 women and children forced into marriage each year.
“There are a lot of problems that we see in Colombia with the sex industry,” said Maria Delgado, the coordinator for the ICMEC’s Gender and Gender Violence Project.
“The fact that it is growing, and that sex trafficking is going to be the number one issue that we have is just an example of that.”
The United States, which has taken a leadership role in combating sex trafficking, has been critical of Colombia for not taking stronger action.
In April, Secretary of State John Kerry sent a letter to President Juan Manuel Santos calling for a comprehensive strategy on sex trafficking in the country.
In the letter, Kerry urged Santos to “take concrete actions to protect victims, investigate perpetrators and prosecute those who exploit women and girl.”
The new report released this week by the ICKLNC found that Colombia’s tourism sector is suffering from a lack of resources.
According, the U,S.
Embassy estimated that there are approximately 4,000 sex trafficking investigations in Colombia each year, which are often handled by the Colombian police and courts.
It’s estimated that the police can only identify around 80 percent of the cases they hear, and often do not even file a report.
In response to the report, the Department of Tourism released a statement, which called for a “comprehensive response” to the problem, which it said is “a concern that must be addressed and a priority to be prioritized by all governments, NGOs and organizations.”
The U.K., meanwhile, has already signed on to a $10 million fund for combating trafficking in Colombia.
Foreign and Commonwealth Office says it is working to develop a joint anti-trafficking strategy with the Colombian government, and is “working with other governments to build on existing anti-transnational crime legislation and to strengthen existing laws to ensure that people who exploit vulnerable groups of people are prosecuted and punished.”
