Pedestrians watch a wedding party’s arrival at the Church of San Pedro Claver, in the historic district of Cartagena. The resort city’s Spanish colonial charms are a boon for tourism, which the government says has risen 250 percent in Colombia since 2006.
A peace accord has ended the fighting but the countryside is littered with land mines and criminal gangs are growing reclaiming territories left by FARC demobilized rebels. These are some of the challenges this hopeful nation faces after five decades of Civil War.

Claudia Joana Cruz (22) stepped on a landmine in 2013 while she was returning from a field trip on the countryside in Cauca. From that day she recalls: “I lost consciousness after the blast and they told me later I was losing a lot of blood. The reason they had to amputate so high was due to the infection. It took almost five hours until I was finally given medical assistance."
More than 11,400 people have been injured or killed by landmines since 1990. Uncleared minefields remain an obstacle to development and resettlement in areas of Colombia.

A resident of the neighborhood La Loma, on the outskirts of the city of Cartagena, gets a haircut by a street barber.
The neighborhood has a reputation for being one of the most dangerous of the city, but its residents have seen a drop in crime rates in recent years. The city of Cartagena has seen a boom in tourism which according to the government has risen 250 percent since 2016. Still, La Loma and other neighborhoods are off-limits for most tourist.

The Healing of Colombia is now available online with text by Alma Guillermoprieto and photos by @juanarre -
An airplane replica of the drug lord Pablo Escobar used for smuggling cocaine adorns the entrance of Hacienda Napoles. His once lavish estate is now a theme park with animal exhibits, waterslides and dinosaur statutes. There has been a revived interest by tourist into the life of Pablo Escobar, in part fueled by the recent tv series and video games. Narco tours are now common in Medellin where you can be taken to his grave and the jailed he once built for himself. But times are now different, and after 52 years of civil war, this hopeful nation seeks a lasting peace and new opportunities. -

Just got my early Christmas present but not sure what makes me happier, the fact that my mom learned to shoot, save and send a video with her smartphone or seeing my first assignment for @natgeo published in Next month's magazine: 'The Healing of Colombia' with text by the wonderful Alma Guillermoprieto. Dreams do come true! Thank you, @roseleen for believing in work and entrusting me with this assignment and to @vaughnwallace for its patience and unconditional guidance throughout this assignment.
More to come from this project...stay tuned...follow @Juanarre for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archival material. Check out also @natgeo Instagram feed for more on this story and newsstands everywhere for the January issue.
