How Dangerous is Cartagena?

I'm going to Cartagena in February to stay with family -- my sister-in-law is Colombian. My family there assures me they'll watch out for me and Cartagena is the safest city in Colombia, a fact I noted also on the Lonely Planet website. I have travelled all over the world and know basic common sense travel precautions and know how to avoid most dangers. I also speak Spanish like a local but look like a gringa. Does anyone know of any recent problems SPECIFIC to Cartagena? (I am VERY aware of the problems in other parts of Colombia) Or of precautions one should take specific to Cartagena? I won't be going anywhere except the city itself and out to Boca Grande.
Thanks for any help you can offer,
