There are numerous ways of traveling to a new place and that always depends on the type of traveler you are. If you are one of those who never doubt when choosing an alternative and a little bit less touristic experience, we are sure you will enjoy this. Come with us to this 4-hour tour around two totally opposed places and discover two different but incredible sides of Cartagena’s real spirit. Start your day by meeting our local guide, who will take you to the Convent of La Popa (Convent of the Stern) located in the top of a hill. From there you will take amazing photos of the rest of the city. Our guide will give you an introduction about our history. Then go to Bazurto Market, where you will have a traditional lunch made by locals. Bazurto market is a vibrant place with colored foodstuffs everywhere you look, moved by a frenetic commerce and its loud but warm and joyful people. In here, our guide will walk you to some of the most famous or traditional stands where natives are working. Some of them will share with you their stories and they will explain what they do or prepare, the ingredients and the preparation of their foods. You will try several fruits and snacks from them and then we will have a costeno lunch: fried fish, yuca, coconut rice and more. Unlike the touristic Walled City, Bazurto market and La Popa Convent will nourish your perspective about Cartagena and Colombia. Just let the experiences and the people show you why we are considered as one of the happiest nations on earth!
