No worries in Cartagena…

 

Cartagena is one of the top destinations in Colombia, and for good reason. the colourful town, vibrant nightlife, and pristine beaches make it a must visit destination for anyone travelling through the country. when my best friends came to visit, i knew it couldn’t be missed. we spent a blissful weekend wandering the cobbled streets of the walled town, soaking up the sun on the Caribbean islands just off the coast, and of course, enjoying the abundance of seafood the culinary scene has to offer. if you want to read more about our experience and our flights, restaurant, and hotel recommendations, visit my post here: “A Weekend in Cartagena: The Perfect Town.” So far, Cartagena may just be my favourite city in Colombia.
