  • A picturesque place in the old Archway of the walled city. Very repetitive, all sold practically the same thing. Cleaning is missing

  • Very good place to try and meet the typical sweets of the area, if you like to taste the flavors of the Colombian Caribbean and good choice to carry a souvenir.

  • It's like seeing Cartagena arrested at the time, with the flavors of decades ago, with the touch home, affordable for everyone, is perhaps the best cheap and good souvenir, tradition that we hope don't miss in the XXI century

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.
