Tips & Tricks to help you plan your next adventure
Cute Colonial Cartagena
We arrived in Cartagena at 1:30am on Tuesday morning (yep, that’s right), and after a couple hours of rest we headed out on a City Walking Tour. The tour was not the best walking tour we’ve done however it was a good way to get our bearings and see all this cute colonial town had to offer.
The streets were very clean and lined with expensive boutiques, delicious restaurants, and beautifully painted colonial and post colonial buildings. However, it was also still possible to find lunch for less than $4.
We spent 4 nights in Cartagena and during this time relaxed, explored the town and indulged in a delicious seafood feast at La Cevicheria (way out of our standard budget but delicious and totally worth it for a one off).
We also had a fun night out at “Media Luna,” the local Wednesday/Miercoles rooftop party place with a group from our hostel.
One of our favourite afternoons was spent watching the sunset from the old city walls. If you feel like a drink you can buy one at the ridiculously overpriced bar (Cafe Del Mar) on the wall, or a much cheeper tinny from one of the local men with eskies set up for your convenience right next door. Or even cheaper still, BYO from a local supermarket.
Nothing too crazy to report.. Next stop Capurgana and Sapzurro before heading to the San Blas Islands!
