Cartagena, on Colombia's Caribbean coastline, is one of the best reasons to visit the country, especially if you have a camera. It has a beautiful beach, fantastic restaurants, lively street life, and an old town so full of charming colonial architecture that it deserves its UNESCO World Heritage status.
It would take days to really appreciate the city, but there is a whole lot more to see than just Cartagena street life. Once you're there you'll want to experience it all, so you may want to plan to spend more time in the city.
There are so many colorful buildings and colorful people in Cartagena's historic center. Spending one weekend in Cartagena just isn't enough time to appreciate it all.
Here is our photo homage to Cartagena's colorful street life.
