Welcome to Cartagena 101: accompany your savvy host behind the fortress walls of the Old Town and its beaming yellow Clock Tower to start this adventure. Then be sure to pop to Portal de Los Dulces (Sweets Street) to stick your hand in the local cookie jar. Your host will guide you past pretty-as-a-postcard landmarks like the pink pastel Teatro Heredia and point out must-try restaurants serving Caribbean delicacies to try on the rest of your trip. Rub shoulders with locals at a nearby plaza, a canvas for the work of artist Fernando Botero, but dodge the crowds to the evolving and laid-back barrio Getsemani, grabbing the world's attention for its politically influenced street art, foot-stamping buskers and café's galore: not to fret, your host knows just the eatery to try.
You'll navigate the weaving cobblestone streets of barricaded Old Town like a pro (thanks to your street-smart host), darting between two palm tree-lined plazas sprinkled with famous landmarks towards the iconic yellow Clock Tower – drop a pin, because this spot evolves into a pulsating salsa platform when the sun goes down. Dart through the Roman-style arches towards a cluster of women operating overflowing sweet carts, before passing a yellow Spanish-style cathedral en route to the pretty-in-pink Teatro Heredia. Weave through crowds admiring the work of Botero at balconied Plaza de Santo Domingo, then dart away to colorful neighborhood Getsemani, through alleys decorated with colorful flags and street art that packs a political punch.
