This is a gritty street market that gives you a culinary insight into Cartagena "outside of the wall". Vegetables, fruits that you do not know, butchery that you do not know and non existent refrigeration. That being said the sights the smells, the fried fish...More

There’s really nothing to visit here. Maybe because it was Sunday and the afternoon but it was fairly empty. It smelled bad. And we felt uncomfortable. This is not your tourist oriented vendor market. This is for locals. If you do want to go, go...More

If you want to see how and where some locals do their shopping, this a great experience. Yes, it's busy, crowded and dirty, but everyone is friendly. Although one should not walking around with flashy jewelry, it felt entirely safe.

A glimpse inside how real people live outside the old city walls. We love markets so we're not going to miss this! Cheap fruit, lunch or clothes here. You can get anything really. Cheap prices and easy to get to in taxi from town

We were very pleased with Duran Duran Tours. They took us to market where we shopped for items that we then used to prepare a meal in their home. Cooking class was good and made going to the market purposeful.

Yes, we were there last month and used Cartagena Connections and they were fabulous. I would ask for Jan (John in German). We was excellent, knew all the nooks and crannies, what to eat, and spoke great english.
