Cartagena is such a vibrant city! There is so much to do, we wish we had more time in our trip to explore. Between all the plazas, cathedrals, cafes, and castles - you can easily fill up the days just wandering around this old historic town. We stayed in this epic apartment listed on Airbnb and started our first night catching the sunset over pina coladas and mojitos at Cafe Del Mar. After, we had dinner at Don Juan (that happened to be perfectly located next to our place), followed by more drinks and dancing at the sister restaurante Maria (also next door). This restaurant has the cutest decor. But all the colonial architecture in Cartagena - the massive doors that are accompanied by baby doors, elaborate knockers, overhanging balconies, patios - make this city so charming! If you are thinking of visiting, do not hesitate - go now! This was by far my favorite city in all of Colombia.
