  View on the modern part of Cartagena - Boca Grande
by Lodestar

If you are already in b/quilla you cannot miss the increadible colonial city called Cartagena. it's been called the most beautiful city in colombia, an dthere is a lot of truth to that. full of beautiful colonial houses, massive churches, street cafes, craftsmen, providing a nice view on the sea - you shouldn't miss it. but that is only the old town (the "walled city"). in the other parts you can find clubs, restaurans, bars, nice hotels, a beautiful beach, but also the poor neighbourhood with it's horribly dirty streets, smelly marketplaces and noisy atmosphare. but there you can find the cheapest accommodation... definately a city worth visiting...

Directions: about 200 km from b/quilla

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
