Plaza de San Diego, Cartagena
(4.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
In lively and bohemian neighborhood of Cartagena's old town, Plaza de San Diego remains a lasting relic of the city's wealth, acquired at the peak of the gold, sugar, and slave trade. Surrounded by brightly painted houses with flowering balconies and narrow cobbled streets lined with bars and restaurants, the plaza is a popular place for dining out while watching the locals go about their business. During the day, browse the stalls with various goods, from local crafts and jewelry, to paintings and Cuban cigars. In the evening, local artists perform live music, adding yet another reason to stop by this area.
