Where to go

Here we are going to show you the MUST SEE places in Cartagena

Playa blanca:  

Special for relaxing and enjoying one of the most beautiful beaches near Cartagena. You can see the white sand and clear pure sea water.  Enjoy the warm, emerald color ocean. The view is perfect and the nature wonderful. This place is clean, secure, lovely and there are many things and sports to do. Family, alone, with friends or couple, this place offers you the Paradise in the Caribbean Sea. Also there are seafood options everywhere. Our recommendations would be that if you really don´t want to buy the things they offer you, just say no, don´t get any free samples.

Modern Art Museum:

A Perfect place to relax and take in some Colombian culture and modern art from South American Artists.  If you enjoy the unusual and enjoy the creativity that is expressed from the artists souls, then stop by as the entrance is cheap and the museum won`t take more the 15-20 minutes of your time and there is an audio guide that you can rent to learn more about the works on display. The building itself - a former customs storage facility - is charmingly well suited to display pieces of art, open, spacious with exposed beams and brick walls.

Bazurto Market:

 If you enjoy markets, a little bit of chaos, and ordinary happenings of the local culture, and a piece of the inner historic central area, then you should go! It's an open market with fruits, veggies, meat parts, fish and herbs. English is not widely spoken here so be prepared or know exactly what you're looking to buy.  Nearby there are mini malls selling souvenirs for less than what you'd pay for in the old city area. This is a not to miss shopping experience if you are a foodie. This open air market is huge. Our recommendation would be to go with a tourist guide because he can show you the places that are less crowded and cleaner also will help you with the language so you could by exactly what you need.
