“Beautiful old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Walk around in the old town. It has a spanish flavour. It takes only a few hours to cross it in several directions. The buildings are (mostly) well mainained. Take a terrace and enjoy. Transport in many streets only by horsecarriages.

“great place to spend your time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

While on vacation in Cartagena we stayed in the Getsemani neighborhood, which is about a 10 minute walk from the walled city. We spent lots of time in the walled city. There are lots of restaurants, stores, souvenir shops and places to get ice cream or gelato. Or find a bench to sit on and people-watch. We were there in May, and temperatures were pretty hot during the day, but in the evenings it was very pleasant.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I'm from New Orleans and it reminded me a lot of the architecture there, but much larger. It's so much fun to explore the streets and wander in and out of all the shops there. Great restaurants in hidden squares abound.

“Oh Yeah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Lively, vibrant and colourful with great eating places and wonderful small parks and plazas. Brilliant for just soaking up the atmosphere and the sun in equal measure. Street vendors were not too pushy and the folks are friendly.
