All those in the know know that Colombia has recently shed its illustrious past, emerging as a hotspot for the sophisticated traveler. And for good reason... from the grand colonial Spanish architecture to the charming cafe & boutique lined streets, the glorious private villas with balconies streaming with bougainvillea to the street plazas alive with salsa dancing & music, and the sultry Caribbean sunshine- Cartagena has something for everyone, all while maintaining its own identity.
... and then there is the wall. A rock-solid symbol of Cartagena's past - be it the conquoring of the Spaniards, the invasion of the Pirates, the days of Noriega or the endless people who have walked it over the past 400 + years, this wall has remained strong. And a sure way to be a part of this history is to bring your yoga mat to the wall at sunset and sweat it out...its also a sure way to get lots of attention, but, as you will quickly find out, the Colombian's are up for anything, anytime!
