"Fascinating city." Cartagena Favorite Tip by crazygal59

Cartagena General: 2 reviews and 2 photos

  Old fort in the city.
by crazygal59

Favorite thing: I loved the buildings and churches. This is an amazing city.

Fondest memory: You just have to remember to use caution while here. Stay with your guide or group and don't wander off on your own. We found we were harassed a lot on the streets to either buy drugs or give money. There were a few tense moments when the police stepped in. We enjoyed our visit , but would like to have seen more of the countryside.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
