    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Walled City of Cartagena, Calle 41, Cartagena 130002 Colombia

    During the Colonial period, Cartagena was the main entrance to Colombia, therefore, being a place of cultural diversity that has enhanced food and social practices. This historical moment and cultural confluence have left an impact on the city of Cartagena, with an extensive, rich and distinguished cuisine.

    While you walk through the streets of Cartagena, you will dive into its daily life through this tasteful experience.  You will see and taste locally grown tropical fruits like granadilla, mango, lulo, soursop, and papaya.  Try delicious fried snacks like arepas, (corn flatbread) stuffed potatoes, empanadas, kibbeh, buñuelos, and carimañolas, while getting in touch with local music, history, and architecture. Sweeten up the evening with colorful cocadas, arequipe, enyucado, raspao, salpicón, and bocadillo with cheese, and if thirst gets in the way, try refreshing bolis, coconut water or even a cup of tinto!
