Ok so last month I finally had a chance to go to Cartagena, Colombia. I only stay for four days. Quick trip. I had a really good time and I wished I would have stay for a whole week.

Wonderful city with probably the best collection of early spanish style architecture from the colonial times. That 'old town' area is one of the best parts of the city and is very walkable. Plus it has some really awesome food! Enjoy the tour! :)

Cartagena

Cartagena, formally known as Cartagena of Indies (Cartagena de Indias), is a large city seaport on the north coast of Colombia. It has a population of roughly 1,075,000 (2006). Founded in 1533 by Don Pedro de Heredia, and named after the port of Cartagena in Spain's Murcia region, it was a major center of early Spanish settlement in the Americas, and continues to be an economic hub as well as a popular tourist destination.

Krulltime -thanks for the nice pics!

My Colombian friend at work urged me to go to Cartagena after I said I liked the old architecture of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Casco Viejo, Panamá.

Is there a nice little hotel in Cartagena you can recommend?

Also, are there direct flights from the Metro area or one has to fly thru Bogotá?

What's the best time of the year to visit?

Thx.

Injc.

Old city is wonderful. Reminiscent of San Juan. I like the skyscrapers jutting up with sky between. Old fort is grand old relic. Do I spy a shantytown or two?
