Description

A trip wouldn’t be complete if you don’t go beyond touristic places and give yourself the chance to taste the place’s food. So, come with us to this food tour around Cartagena’s heart, so you get the best of Caribbean cuisine and its people: cocadas, carimañola, arepa de huevo, and more. Although those names are hardly relatable to something common or widely known, we are sure that it will be a gastronomic experience to remember. Your day will start by meeting our local and friendly tour guide. With him you will be headed to the first stop in the best place for food tours in Cartagena: The Walled City. As you walk around you will have several stops to try the best of Cartagena and Caribbean typical flavors. From fruits to shrimp cocktails, deep-fried snacks, typical sweets and coffee or beer. Some of the things you can try are: Arepa with egg. Arepa is one of the most traditional Colombian plates, eaten almost everywhere in the country in lots of different versions. In the Caribbean coast, this corn-based tortilla is usually deep fried and stuffed with a tasty egg. You will also visit local food stands and try shrimp cocktail or carimañola: a very typical yucca and cheese finger food. If you’re craving for something sweet, you’ll also have cocadas, a sort of cookie made from dried coconut or typical fruits. But there are many other options of traditional sweets and candies. And of course, try a cup of nice high-quality coffee or have cold and refreshing beer before ending the tour. You will discover ancient culinary techniques, treasured family recipes, and life stories of all the locals that will make you swing from sweet to salty, from fresh to fried tasty appetizers and from tasteful to delicious snacks. Real samples of diversity of ingredients and customs. This is the most valuable souvenir of the very best side of Cartagena de Indias: tons of food offered to you by joyful and friendly locals. We know there won’t be regrets. You are in for a treat.
