Cl. 25, Cartagena, Bolívar, Colombia
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...

La Paletteria pops with a rainbow of popsicles. There are a variety of water, cream and yogurt based options including regional fruit like Guanabana and Lulo. Pistachio and Nutella became my crack for my time in Cartagena and I returned daily for...

Calle 37, Cartagena, Bolívar, Colombia
