I loved visiting the old city of Cartagena. You can feel the history dripping off the walls. The locals are warm and friendly, shopping was fun and the food was delicious.

Very cool city, absolutely worth a visit, great sites to see and restaurants. A day or two here is sufficient though, very crowded tourist haven but a “must see”.

Had an amazing time walking around the city enjoying the food, drinks and culture. The only downside is the street sellers, borderline agressive and anoying. They would follow you several steps for a sale.

Old Cartagena is stepping back in time to the days of the gallons and the pirates. It is a well preserved Spanish colonial city. It is loaded with attractions and excellent hotels and restaurants. If you visit Colombia you must visit Cartagena.
