  • Sell want everyone too, no meters without addressed to be. Who wants to see even just street vendors is right here. Nice goods must have up useless but pretty good prices.

  • Dear Mayor: I was born in Cartagena and I live in the United States many years ago. Visited the fantastic makes little and enjoy Recalling each corner, this beautiful but gives much shame see the garbage on the floor by all sides. Cartagena many tourists from around the world visit it and insurance is returned with the same disappointment than I. Walk in the Center looking for a waste to throw away my trash and could find "only one and full", after half an hour. A city so beautiful and tourist as it is, should have a trash basket in each corner to prevent that people throw their dirt everywhere. I tried to of be a good citizen and I took my time but there will be other people that not them import. It is the duty of all keep the city clean but also is the duty of the Mayor's office help and provide with wastebaskets. If I saw that there were signs to promote the cleaning but not a basket available. Invite him to walk the city centre and you notice yourself! Thank you for your great work.

  • Cartagena is a very beautiful city and tourist par excellence... But is very sad to see as the dirt and odors invading the walled stone city... The Mayor's office should begin a campaign of cleansing in the squares and streets of the old... The clock tower square is black the grime and grease, like the Park Bolivar... and the most embarrassing is the courtyard of the Mayor, the Customs Plaza... I invite the mayor or to whom it may concern that at a glance and is as the dirt and odors are destroying Cartagena... I was in weeks past with a few guests from Europe and was a shame to show both dirt...
