5 Seconds in Cartagena, Colombia

Over the holidays, we visited Colombia and spent time with loved ones and friends, but knowing our adventurous spirit, we had to do a little exploring while down there. We celebrated the first weekend of 2018 by venturing out and walking the streets of Cartagena, Colombia and loved it so much we had to share it with you. Next time you’re in the area, make a stop here and enjoy as much as we did!


Stay at:

Hotel Casa del Coliseo

Get your coffee fix at:

Anywhere on the city’s streets! If you see a guy carrying a thermos of this delicious rocket fuel, stop and grab a cup for only $0.60!

Get out and explore:

The Walled City out to Getsemani to do a mural walk through cute hidden lanes and alleyways.

Grab a tasty bite at:

La Cevicheria

Finish the day with dinner and drinks at:

Townhouse Boutique Hotel’s rooftop bar or Alquimico’s rooftop for beers, or both!
