Put a whole historical district of Cartagena is walled in. It used to be a very fortified fort on the ocean. You can pretty much walk the entire perimeter of the wall and take pictures of the ocean as well as different attractions within the...More

There is so much hustle and bustle in the walled city. Everything you can dream of exists within these walls. We had a hotel outside of the walls so we would go in and out each day. There is excellent shopping, restaurants and history here.

We enjoyed our time here. It was hot and humid but that was expected. Colorful buildings, great food and music. We walked all over the old city. Great fun.

Very nice historical city. Well kept and full of historical points. But, you get despointed with some tourists traps: taxis never have change to charge more, tip are required if you take a picture of local dressed people

Cool walled city and architecture within but a day or so is about all you need. It’s blazing hot and vendors constantly harass you.
