Breakfast at the hotel.
With its mix of colonial history and modernity, Cartagena is such an enchanting city.
During the morning you will go to discover the Bazurto Market, a real pearl at the same level as La Popa Monastery and San Felipe Fort. Here you'll explore the Gastronomy from the city,
with different secret points between fruit stands, vegetables, herbs and spices, milk products, fishes, seafood, and traditional kitchen equipment.
Option 1: Try native fruits and head to the Restaurant Ohlala Bistro for your breakfast with a show of Arepa e' huevo!
Option 2: Try native fruits and local beers... take a lunch of the traditional cuisine at the same place where Antony Bourdain recorded for his tv show No Reservations at Travel and Living Channel. Meet some chefs, owners and providers from this important Market.
During the afternoon, beyond the historic center, there are two spots that really provide insight into the city's past: La Popa Monastery and San Felipe Castle. Both were strategic sites used to defend Cartagena against pirates and the conquistadors of colonial times. San Felipe was built in 1536 to protect the bay and is a masterpiece of military architecture. La Popa sits at a high point in Cartegena, and the views from the monastery are as fabulous as you'd expect — all the way out to the Boca Grande neighborhood and its glittering skyscrapers.
