I am not the biggest fan of Colombian food. I am not a fan at all. So what I can recommend is not going to be local. Although, other types of restaurants in the city were amazing! A lot of tourists come to Cartagena, so the offer is large. Here are my favorite picks
Cartagena was by far my favorite place in Colombia. There is so much life, so much history and the city is so pretty! Plus, thanks to the nice breeze from the sea, it wasn’t as hot as Santa Marta. I spent four days in Cartagena, but I could have stayed for longer. Here are some things that you can’t miss when you are visiting Cartagena de Indias
Cartagena de Indias is so lively! It’s incredible, right after the sun sets the streets are filled with people, music, street artists. You can’t get bored here. It’s a great party place with a Caribbean twist. And here are my recommendations.
Santa Marta is the essence of the Colombian Caribe. It’s small, loud, a bit dirty and very colorful. I highly recommend heading to playa el Rodadero at Sunset. It’s filled with people, large speakers playing Reggae, people dancing, and drinking.
When you read blog posts about traveling to Colombia, you will come across a recommendation of Palomino. Where is it, what is it, and if you are not going further east, is it really worth it? The answer is: it depends on what you are looking for. Here’s what Palomino is all about.
Colombia is one of the biggest producers of coffee and it is considered to be premium in the coffee world. Funny thing, you won’t get great coffee in Colombia. Well, you will, but you really need to look for it. Colombians drink Nescafe and if you don’t specifically ask for a Colombian coffee, even in a coffee shop, that’s what you will get. Why? It is simply cheaper.
