Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I met barrio getsemaní on the last day in cartagena, if I had met the first few days I would have stayed in this neighborhood.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    The Getsemani neighborhood is a good place to stay, as it offers an authentic look at what life in the city is really like for the locals.

  • Any surprises?

    My biggest surprise was swimming in the sea on the island of Barú at night as there was a large amount of fluorescent plankton, it was amazing to see the bright colors when we stirred the waters of the sea.
