Essential Guide to Cartagena
On Colombia's Caribbean coast, Cartagena is a vividly-painted walled city filled with 400-year-old houses. You could just spend your days there walking around, snapping photos of the historic center. Nobody would question that desire. But there's so much more to do, from exploring the street art of the Getsemaní barrio to touring the Teatro Heredia and daytripping to Islas del Rosario. Some of Colombia's best cocktails and finest seafood dishes are served in this port city. Don't miss the sautéed snapper in coconut-shrimp sauce at Restaurante Donjuán.
