We visited the Galeon Bucanero during our city tour and found it be a lovely highlight sitting on the harbour. Magnificent

This boat just sits in the harbor. Not sure what it does. Didn’t see anyone going on it the many times we passed by.

It is very close to the historical centre of Cartagena. You can get in and watch what is like inside of one of these ships. Please bring water because sometimes it gets too hot.
