Walk around in the old town. It has a spanish flavour. It takes only a few hours to cross it in several directions. The buildings are (mostly) well mainained. Take a terrace and enjoy. Transport in many streets only by horsecarriages.

While on vacation in Cartagena we stayed in the Getsemani neighborhood, which is about a 10 minute walk from the walled city. We spent lots of time in the walled city. There are lots of restaurants, stores, souvenir shops and places to get ice cream or gelato. Or find a bench to sit on and people-watch. We were there in May, and temperatures were pretty hot during the day, but in the evenings it was very pleasant.

I'm from New Orleans and it reminded me a lot of the architecture there, but much larger. It's so much fun to explore the streets and wander in and out of all the shops there. Great restaurants in hidden squares abound.

Lively, vibrant and colourful with great eating places and wonderful small parks and plazas. Brilliant for just soaking up the atmosphere and the sun in equal measure. Street vendors were not too pushy and the folks are friendly.

Old City in Cartagena has an interesting history and this part of the city is kept very clean for the tourists. It's hard to walk 5 feet without being bombarded by someone selling something made-in-china trying to pass it off as locally handcrafted or hand painted, but if you walk towards the wall nearest the shore, you can walk atop the wall for a while and escape the worst of it.

The buildings are beautiful. Prices here are expensive for Colombia. It's a port city with a lot of people taking tours from the cruise ships, but if you end up in Cartagena, it's one of the only things worth visiting.
