"CARTAGENA DE INDIAS." Colombia Favorite Tip by almogaver

Colombia General: 65 reviews and 53 photos


Favorite thing: I only was in the north, around Cartagena de Indias, but I
can really tell you that with the only visit to this city
is enough to cross the Atlantic.
Please, take a walk along the sea, from the new part, to
the old city.If itīs possible donīt be affraid to take a bus,here named 'Chivas' and go with the other people.
Donīt forget to take a taxi-please be sure is a safe one-
and ask the man inside to take you to a little village in the coast. Spend a day with him and , donīt worry, youīll
pay perhaps only 20 US dollars for all.

Fondest memory: The different way of life from those who are from there
and those who are tourist. We were in a five stars hotel,
the waitress of our room didnīt have water to take a shower,
she only had two hours a day....and I suspect she was happier than me.
But if you forget all this for a while Colombia could
be the adventure of your life.
The colour of the sea, the fantastic islands, the people,
the colour of the streets, the sun looks different...
