I love Cartagena. The modern side looks like Miami, with many skyscrapers in front of the beach and by the pier. The old part of town reminds me of Europe, with its ancient fort and the domes of the chapels sticking out in the sky. Clean, vibrant, romantic. They say that they want to develop it like Venice, using its system of channels of water running through town. In front of Cartagena there are Rosario Island and my favorite is Baru with Playa Blanca. You do not need a tour to get there. Just hop on a boat and you would be there in less than 15 minutes.

Before we docked we could see the city of Cartagena and it is huge and absolutely beautiful with all of their tall, white buildings.

Jose was our guide. He made the entire tour fun and he was extremely informative. There were couples on our bus that had been there before and always looked for Jose's bus. We saw lots of interesting places and had a great experience. We were the only couple that got off the bus totally sober (been there...done that....learned lesson). Although we will say the tiny bit of rum that we tasted was very light and smooth, another reason not to drink as it sneaks up on you. We visited numerous places and stopped for a time to shop at a local shopping center. We were stunned at the number of aggressive vendors that were on the streets. We always thought Mexico was bad, but these vendors were way worse. You need to beware of this and not just go walking about on your own. We would do this tour again.

We took a tour called Cartagena by Land and Sea. We started by boat from the Convention Center and toured the entire bay area by sea before disembarking for the second part of the tour by land.
Our tour guide's name was Julito and the tremendous passion and love he has for his city and his culture shows in his job as a tour guide.
I cannot help but think that the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean" was inspired by events that took place in this city centuries ago. Cartagena was the capital of the Spanish Empire in the Caribbean. It was an important political and economic center for the Spanish. The city was continuously attacked and plundered by the British and the Dutch who raided not only the city for riches but the Spanish galleons that brought in gold and other jewels from other colonies to Cartagena for storage and consolidation before being shipped to Spain.
Of all the tours offered, this one was the most comprehensive and offered best value.
