Watch our video itineraries as we explore this colorful city in Colombia for three days. We show you where to stay, see, eat and drink in Cartagena – with the amazing district of Getsemani. We loved the eye opening Bazurto market – a must visit destination in this city. We recommend staying at the Hotel Alfiz.
Cartagena, a gorgeous fishing village on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, has excellent beaches, a historic old town (that’s entirely walkable) and beautiful colonial architecture. It’s also one of the safest places in the country, so it’s no wonder it’s a popular port of call for cruise ships. Need a break from exploring the cobblestone streets? Stop at an outdoor cafe for excellent pastries and people-watching. [google]
