Joy 1

Cartagena means Caribbean. Its walls and colonial architecture, its living streets full of stories told on the beautiful door handles and balconies, the joy of its people, the flavors and colors, make it an ideal city to wander for hours, to taste and enjoy the diversity that exists between the ocean and history. You can find magical characters on every corner: atemporary, joyful and emblematic: palenqueras carrying fruit or sweets on their heads, taciturn writers, smiley vendors, casual street performers who transmit rhythm with loud music. The solemn castle, acting as a fortress, encases the real human patrimony. You breathe culture, craftsmanship, gastronomy, tradition and happiness. During the day, life adapts to the heat and humidity and time passes by slowly; at night, it is a completely different story: nightlife is glitzy and flavorful.

Its Treasures 2

Of course, one cannot ignore the privilege Cartagena has on its shores: a constant feast of fresh seafood. Find them on the streets, in sun shielded terraces; do not leave without savoring them: it will hunt you. Try fresh fish by at the tables near the market, and once there submerge yourself in the pleasure that a shellfish rice is. The streets also belong to the traditional cooks in smiling faces who proudly prepare the most sublime fried snacks from the coast: you can taste them at every possible time you want, either for breakfast or after a night out partying. Bite into and fall in love with arepa e’ huevo, a corn fritter filled with egg and meat, or a soft yuca carimañola. If they sound delicious and comforting, is because indeed they are.

Pride 3

Be it on the head of a palenquera or on the street markets, there is an abundance of tropical fruit; fresh cut into bites, in fresh juices, popsicles or gelattos, they sweep the streets and aromatize the city at every moment of the day. They are the best medicine for the heat: do try corozo, lulo, mamey or níspero, their taste will travel with you forever. Cartagena is particularly proud of its culinary craftsmanship. It has a traditional sweets passage where you can discover the full potential of coconut; it has a market full of regional color, but above all, it is home to cooks from the heart. As much so on the street as in top-notch restaurants, the cooks offer you abundant and warm food, generous. At night, after living the joy of its historic streets or a beautiful day at the beach, it is ideal to sit back and enjoy the flavors. No foodie will want to leave such happiness behind.
