Just before we left for Belgium, on the 26th of December, we spent 4 days in Cartagena de Indias.
December 19th, we left at 12.30PM by bus to get to Cartagena at 5 PM just before dark. I had made reservations in a hotel just outside the old city walls, in the Getsemani district. A 10 minute walk to the historic centre. Getsemani is the up-and coming neighbourhood of Cartagena. Before, this was a barrio known for drugs and prostitution.
During our visit we wandered through the streets of the historic centre and visited the Gold museum.
We left Cartagena on the 23rd of December happy to have visited the oldest city founded by the Spanish in South America and part of UNESCO world heritage.
