    Very nice portal, is close to the Clock Tower and Plaza de la Aduana. The candy stalls are an attraction, with all types of candy possible and really nice prices. We bought some cakes, but everything there seemed appetizing.. WORTH

    In front of the clock tower, with a multitude and variety of typical sweets in various stalls. Some let you experience and the prices are a little cheaper than elsewhere.

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.
