first time in colombia - unfortunately only have 6 nights. I chose medellin and cartagena as my cities to see. should i spend more time in cartagena or medellin is my big question.
We would like to go to that island to get to the nice beaches (though im fearful of the tourist factor and want nothing to do with an "aquarium" trip) - for one day from cartagena. im from chicago and havent seen the sun or warm weather in oh, 7 months. I just want ONE day of a nice beach. that's all.
We are not looking to tour museums or anything. A girlfriend and i just want to walk the streets, go to bars restaurants cafes etc. Hopefully meet some people. Have some beers and ceviche.
Renting apartments in both locations.
ANY advice would be greatly appreciated.
