TRAVEL SERIES: DAY 12 & 13: CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA

Finally, we have come to the end of this trip! I was very excited that we were ending our trip in Cartagena, Colombia! I knew it would be a beautiful city. We loved Panama, but Cartagena still had that Spanish/colonial feel with the walls still up. It’s a very vibrant city with so many things happening regardless of what time it was. These people party until 6am!

We only had one full day here before we had to go back to California, so we tried to jam pack everything. When we arrived, it was the hottest and humid day ever and we walked around the city all day. The funny thing is, a lot of the stores in Colombia were Americanized where you can find many stores in the US.

We ate at a couple restaurants and street food vendors. But I was determined to find the fruit lady. When you google Cartagena, this fruit lady pops up who is dressed in this colorful dress. And when I found her, she was so sweet and already knew what to do..take a picture! She also hooked it up with some papaya! There are so many things happening it was like watching a free show. There was a group of street dancers that were performing these dances. They really got into it! We weren’t San Felipe Castle because it was way too hot and literally no shade. But I’ve heard it has awesome views.

Overall, Cartagena is a beautiful city that is still very colonial and the people are so vibrant! I would suggest at least 2 days of exploring the city since there are a few cities outside of the walls that are worth checking out like Getsamani, Cartagena which we walked through at night, but people say it’s the next hip city, for now let’s say it’s just a hipster spot. There’s also island hopping to enjoy. So there is plenty to do here and maybe one day we’ll go back to explore more.

As our trip came to an end, it was good to be back home and sad to say, back to reality. It was worth the trip to explore all these cities in Central and South America. It reminded me so much of the Philippines, so it almost felt like home. It made me want to explore more countries in South America and brush up on my Spanish!
