You can spend plenty of time here if you want. The "old city" has 7 miles of wall around the city so there are plenty of streets to walk and lots of shops to buy over priced souvenirs. There are plenty of places to eat...More

Stunning colonial architecture at every corner and a myriad of museums and churches. It’s very touristy and crowded but this is to be expected

You can get lost in the walled city for hours. Take time to explore some of the lesser known areas as you can get a much better feel for local culture. Best souvenirs in all of Colombia

We loved Cartagena! Wandering through the cobbled streets, looking at the colonial architecture and shopping in the quaint shops were highlights of our trip. We loved eating in the varied restaurants where the food was usually delicious. Travelers, put this one on your bucket lists!

If you are in Cartagena then you must walk on the wall and stroll the streets of the old city. There are too many sights to detail here. Just soak it in, have a coffee, lunch, dinner or whatever. Enjoy!

Cobbled stone & old colonial buildings. The walled city was a great place to roam for 2 days. It’s 15min taxi ride around $10,000-15,000 cop. Staying inside the city are bit noisy as Jan is the peak season in Colombia. With quaint shops & music...More

Yes, it's touristy. Yes, you get pitched everything from drinks to trinkets at every turn. But none of that dampens the awesome beauty that is the walled city. It's remarkable how well preserved it is. Bougainvilla tumbling over balconies, colorful homes, cobbled plazas. It's truly...More

Sorry you will have been and gone by now!! I did not get this request until the second week in January. We were a party of 12 in July so we pre -booked a shuttle bus. Some of the hotels will organise this or give a contact.
