It is a busy place full of people going in all directions, merchants selling fruits, palms provide nice shade. Central spot - close to museums, restaurants, major sights.

yes, cartagena is hot and humid. after walking around old town and soaking up all the sights, find your way to this excellent little plaza for a seat on a bench in the shade while sipping on a fruit juice bought from one of the nearby vendors. good people watching spot as well.

Cartagena is not super kid-friendly but this is a nice square to hang out, eat an ice cream, feed the pigeons, visit the torture museum (!), and if you are lucky, make giant bubbles with the sweet, gentle guy from Barcelona.

Plaza Bolivar was nice to walk through. Pretty greenery, benches to sit on and hang out. It gets quite crowded, so grab a seat early. We strolled through here a few times. Lot's of vendors selling candy, soda, cigarettes, etc.
