Eat your way through sizzling Cartagena — the unofficial culinary capital of Colombia — one bite of hearty goodness at a time, like cooling off on a popular plaza with a bite of exotically sweet coconut sold by Palenquera women or crunching into a deep-fried egg-filled empanada con huevo that locals eat on the go. See which twist Cartagena puts on buttery Colombian staple arepas but leave room for deep-fried (we see a trend!) dishes fritanga, which includes cheese balls and pig's skin, if you're feeling adventurous. Next, complement your portside trip with a helping of local-style ceviche in artsy barrio Getsemani, or dart to a nearby hotspot for a mouthful of coastal red snapper, generously poured champagne cola refajo, and sparkling harbor views.
Wander on a culinary path tiled with a blend of cultural influences in foodie hotspot Cartagena, where seafood and tropical fruit is the city's foundation, evident in the colorfully clad palenqueras strolling the Plaza Santo Domingo with bowls of sweet fruit floating on their heads, or the crunchy fish tacos from a chatty vendor. These vendors also have stacks of extra fluffy maize arepas, paired perfectly with gooey cheese, around the corner from a bursting bar serving fried fritanga. Escape off the tourist track to laid-back neighborhood Getsemani, where tiny spot El Boliche Cebichería serves ceviche with a cooked shrimp twist, or visit harbor-side Club de Pesca, known for red snapper and coconut rice, and a Latin band that sings the night away.
