Nothing better in Cartagena. Good restaurants, bars, safe place. During the night, calm and beautiful. Try to search some recommended restaurants in Trip Advisor. It works
The Walled City is the Heart of Cartagena, it is very well located and with easy and quick access to other areas like Getsemani, Bocagrande and the Airport as well. Inside it, you'll find everything, from Hostels and Hotels to Restaurants, banks, exchange houses and supermarkets. But, the best of all, is just wandering through it's cobblestone streets, you'll get... More
You can walk around anywhere within the walled city - shopping, music, drinks, food, sightseeing - its all there! Also very safe and you are rarely alone on the streets.
We spent the morning wondering around this history filled city in late November. There is good shopping for tourists with many street vendors and shops with all local made goods.Be careful of locals wishing to take you on a tour. They want to change for these service,around 50 per couple. It may not be a bad idea if you don't... More
The walled city is worth a rambling walk as the architecture and ambiance is overwhelming. It's wonderful to see that Cartegema understands the valuable resource of the walled city. Many of the residences and buildings are being renovated. If doors are open on any of the buildings do take time to gawk and stare. Perhaps the owner will invite you... More

You'll have a good opportunity... More
I have been living for 28 years next to the walls- abt 50 mtrs- and they still impress me daily. Cartagena was the first sea port in south america and all the gold the spanish took from here went through this port.The walls were built to keep the piates out.
A stop at the old walled city was part of a tour we took in Cartagena. The place was lovely--I thought I had stepped into New Orleans! The same balconies, even the same tiled street signs. A street vendor selling orange juice possibly saved my life as the equatorial heat was melting me in my tracks!
There are so many wonderful and full of historic places on Earth and Cartagena is one worth a visit. It is a port city and its sea port is stunning. You leave your boat and cross a garden full of macaws, flamingos, peacocks, parrots, bunnies and monkeys. All free ranged! Just wonderful! The city, behind big walls, to protect their... More
