Everything you will need except to head off to the marina is within these walls. You will enjoy this romantic spot and feel safe within the walled city.

It's the scent of Cartagena. Going at nights and having a walk or a beverage with your loved one...it's an unforgettable experience

Very nice to stroll aroud the centro historico. I can recommend walking ON the wall, it will take you about two hours and will give you an good view and impression of the city. Afterwards wander around the streets.The persistent vendors, who all are your best friend, (hey amigoooo!!!) will go away after your more persistent but friendly 'no gracias'.

The Walls and the Buildings inside the city are some of the best examples I have seen in the Americas. Just strolling around the streets, and sitting in Squares and Plazas is very relaxing, and there are plenty of stores and restaurants to stop for snacks or something to eat. At night there are some nice bars, but some of them blast our music later on. There are plenty of performance art shows, which are good to watch as well. It is good to stroll on the walls looking out over the sea at sunset.

Henri Castrillon gave my family a fantastic tour of the walled city. He took great time and care giving us colorful and knowledgable information about the city past and present. He went out of his way to help us with everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Cartagena. He is a fabulous, hardworking, genuinley charming person who obviously has a great love for his city and shares it whole heartedly on his tours.
