A Walk Through the Streets of Cartagena
Cartagena is one of the most photogenic cities in South America. Its unique and colorful architecture wrapped in flowery vines makes it a dream to walk around and explore.
If you are interested in shopping for cute dresses for your stay you can visit the Colombian brand Pat Primo. I purchased the red dress shown above for just $20 USD.

Tip: It gets very hot in Cartagena. Always have a water bottle with you and dress light. I love warm weather and never complain about it, but it was too hot even for me. Cartagena is a wall protected city, meaning you there is not much air circulating throughout the city when walking around.
Tip: Have a medium to high budget when visiting. Besides wandering the beautiful streets, the beauty of Cartagena also lies within its hotels, restaurants, clubs, and local markets. Go there to treat yourself to these things.
The view from the Movich Hotel top terrace is definitely one of the best ones in Cartagena. The terrace is open to the public for free. You can also purchase a day pass that includes a meal and access to the swimming pool for approximately $50USD.
Tip: Three to four days is enough for Cartagena. The old town and the beach are the main attractions. Leaving the old town and neighboring areas is not recommended for tourists. Also, meet some locals! Colombians are extremely kind and friendly people.This entry was posted in Cartagena, Culture, History, Photography
