Casa Marta Cartagena
Cartagena by day!
This city is fascinating. Equal parts Old San Juan with a historic walled Old Town in the center of tall condo towers reminiscent of South Beach. And in both instances Cartagena is sexier, cheaper, with prettier, more open and accommodating young people. Unlike much of the Caribbean and Latin America, Colombian’s overall do not speak English. Thank god my travel friend does.
