  • Beautiful square located in front of the traditional church of Santo Toribio in the heart of the historic centre.

  • Walked past this party/plaza this morning after having driven past it the other day- and am glad that I did. It is really pretty and not very busy. The buildings are traditionally colonial style. The ...  more »
  • Busy square, mostly during the night. Is full of restaurants and bars, with that climate that only the picturesque cities have.

  • Nice place to relax and to enjoy a few drinks. Vendors and street artists can get super annoying, very ungrateful and rude once you give them some change as they will request more and will not leave. It made us very uncomfortable so my advice is - don't allow singers and guitarists even start their song as they will charge you 20000pesos. Just ignore them
  • Nice nightly music. Great little red coffee truck. Vendors drive ypu nuts here! Dont pay more than 15$US for your hats. They tey to sell them for the equivalent of 40$US. The coral bracelets, they ask for up to 10$US. I brought it down to 5$US (equivalent) they are amazing stones, don't get me wrong. They cost lots in USA, but they are from here, therefore, they should be less expensive. Which they are, we are only given the tourist price. Which we can work down.
  • Colombia is a gorgeous country, especially inside the walled city. They have gorgeous options on airbnb for houses to rent and really nice hotels!
  • Nice little square. Good to take a seat if you can find one and just enjoy the locals chatting amongst themselves. The square has two different faces from the day to the night.
  • good vibes and a choco museo

Where to stay in Cartagena

Despite its status as a major tourist hub, Cartagena offers a good choice of affordable places to stay. If you're looking to splurge, consider staying at one of the town's restored colonial-era buildings, which now house boutique hotels packed with modern amenities. Alternatively, several old monasteries in Cartagena's walled colonial district offer outstanding facilities at very high prices. Budget-conscious travelers can explore the many mid-range hotels and low-cost hostels clustered in Getsemani, an up-and-coming neighborhood and center of the backpacker scene.
