Plaza de La Trinidad is a must visit when in Cartagena. Located in the middle of the Getsemani neighbourhood, this is the meeting place for locals and tourists alike. You'll find street food vendors, performers and guys selling beer out of coolers. It's a pretty...More
This small plaza is the beating heart of Getsemani after dark. It is surrounded by street vendors, and on the streets that emanate from it one can find many restaurants and bars. On Sundays after 8 pm the plaza is filled with zumba dancers -...More
We visited Plaza de La Trinidad mid-afternoon after wandering through Getesmani.
We stopped at a bar on the corner for a beer and to people watch. In the daytime, it was fairly quiet with just a few kids playing soccer and locals sitting around shooting...More
Loved this area for all the right reasons. Most authentic and lived in plaza in the town. Join in the fun with the locals. Great little bars and restaurants around the plaza - this will not disappoint. Very safe.
Located in Getesmani (Hesmani) just a few minutes walk outside the walled city. Surrounded by Hostels, Clubs, Shops and street food vendors. In the Evenings it is humming with families, backpackers and tourists. It is clearly a gathering place for the residents of the area....More

Getsemani at Night (6 Replies)
Hola! We (my husband and I) are so excited about our upcoming trip to Colombia! We have traveled extensively throughout Central America and are looking forward to our first visit to South America. I speak a tiny bit of Spanish that hopefully will help with basic communication. I'll be brushing up on my Spanish in the coming weeks via some great apps. Gotta love modern technology! We will be staying within the walled city for two nights and plan to spend a night out in the Getsemani...More

Getsemani is fine to walk around at night in that area. It has improved a lot over time, and is now a little backpacking hub. Of course use common sense and stay away from unlit back streets. Walking to there from the Old City along Luna will also be fine - and I would do it on the return as well, though if you want to catch a taxi, then that is fine as well.
