This year I visited Cartagena, Colombia and it made my top list of favorite places I’ve visited thus far. I’ve had another insane year of travel, so I’m finally catching up on all my travel posts to wrap up 2017.
Because I went with a group, we had a schedule we had to stick to so wasn’t able to venture so much on my own to hit up the best restaurants and food spots so I will be back to create my own Cartagena guide. I plan to go back in 2018, but thought I’d share my pictures from this trip in the meantime.
I went to Cartagena with Foray Collective and Maaji Swimwear. I went with a few of my favorite blogger babes and the best word to describe the trip is magical. We stayed in the heart of Cartagena in a beautiful house put together by Maaji, which is a Colombian swimwear brand.
The city of Cartagena is colorful with a Spanish charm. It almost feels like you are on a movie set, or transported back in time. There are horse carriages all over the streets, and colorful fruit and street vendors everywhere. At night the city comes alive with music and the streets are buzzing with people. The energy is just amazing. It’s one of those places I have to go back to, I fell in love with it.
We took a boat out one day to Isla Baru which is off the coast of Cartagena and it was absolutely amazing. The water was beautiful and we practically had the island and beach to ourselves for the day.
