There is some wonderful history, some lovely buildings, great shops, and more street vendors then you would think could fit in one place. The vendors are mostly polite, the huge police presence probably influences that. It is interesting and busy and well worth a visit.

Charming historical old city, great coffee shops, salsa bars, a vibrant square with filled with tourists and locals alike. What's not to love? But if you're looking for beautiful sandy beaches, have to travel elsewhere.

Hi. unfortunately I didn't see any in Cartagena but I did go to the synagogue in Bogota. If you call ahead a member will give you a tour and personal insights. it was probably a highlight of my trip.
