Your half-day adventure on the Caribbean coast awaits; why not start in the fortified heart of lively Cartagena outside the beaming yellow Clock Tower - a booming salsa stage at night - or let your sweet tooth lose in a nearby street overflowing with delightful local treats. Nearby, catch a glimpse of a cotton candy-like theater, before seeing the home of Nobel Prize-winning writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The San Pedro Claver Church and its dramatic stone front awaits, then pop over to the Customs Plaza for a peek at elegant Colonial-era architecture. Escape the dreamy walled city to hip place-of-the-people Getsemani barrio, a paradise of street art speaking to local issues, and lively street performers you’ll want to join in the dance.
In a fortified maze of streets once designed to confuse pirates, navigate the heart of the magical city like a pro, past colonial balconies bursting with bougainvillea and street performers that vary from traditional guitarists to booming beatboxers. Walk across a palm tree-lined plaza underneath the yellow arches of the famous Clock Tower, towards Sweets Street run by mostly women, before darting to the pink pastel Teatro Adolfo Mejía. Nearby is the home to the city's famous Gabriel Garcia Marquez and an ivy-covered mural in the writer's honor. Travel past the towering four-centuries-old San Pedro Claver, before exploring colorful barrio Getsemani, along narrow streets lined with food vendors, politically influenced graffiti, and foot-stamping salsa.
