Heaven, awesome place, north part of the old town has a much cooler vibe than the tourist squares. It’s only 5 minutes from the centre but an amazing pretty walk

Enjoyed walking around the city that was so important in the history of Colonial South America and the Wars of independence. Only problem is the hoards of in your face street venders.

I was told by many friends to visit the old city at night, because it’s a different experience. Walking around and seeing the balconies and all of the little shops and restaurants was great. The live music in the plazas was a treat.

This was undoubtedly the highlight of our visit to Cartagena in Columbia. The old walled city is the must-see in this city. We did the walking tour, and took it easy because of the heat. It’s best done with a guide otherwise you’ll miss out...More

I loved the squares, cobblestone streets & colorful colonial buildings. You can always find live bands playing music out in the open restaurants and there are many restaurants to choose from.
