“Lovely”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Beautiful city, narrow streets, nice shops, great food. You can take a horse-drawn carriage for a tour around the city. Best to go in the afternoon after 4pm because it is VERY hot during the day.

“Wonderful city”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

Cartagena is a wonderful city with very interesting architecture, beautiful sunsets and wonderful stores. Walk on the streets, have a drink at Fidel and enjoy the sunset.

One of the drawbacks is that traffic is not prohibited on the streets with Colombian taxi drivers using their claxons all over the city.


Moreover, taxi drivers do not use the fixed prices and ask for 6k pesos instead of the 5k which is the legal price.

Someone should realize that they are harming their own tourism.

“Walk the walls but put on the sun block”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Beautiful old city walls. Take your time and stroll along them. There are a few shady breaks but be careful in the hot midday sun.

“Great sunsets on the walls”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

+ It's great to see the city from the city walls, and the sunset from there is amazing.
