Had a lovely ride in a horse and buggy through this beautiful old city. We had the pleasure of the best tour guide ever, our daughter in law. You feel like you have taken a step back in time.

The old city of Cartagena is justifiably a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Every street is photo worthy. Make sure to pack water and stop for a bite at one of the hundreds of fantastic restaurants too.

This is definitely one of the best historic centres in south America. There are nice colonial houses everywhere. There is a free walking tour that I highly recommend.
