Cartagena, Colombia


Cartagena is a fascinating city, nearly surrounded by lagoons, bays and the Caribbean Sea. Almost all excursions include a stop at the mall for jewelry shopping (the island is famous for emeralds). For those not interested in expensive jewelry, bargaining is expected at Los Bovedas, where coffee beans and handicrafts are good buys.
