Without a doubt, Cartagena's old city is its principal attraction, particularly the inner walled town, consisting of the historical districts, It is a real gem of colonial Architecture, packed with Churches, Monasteries, Plazas, Palaces, and Mansions with their overhanging Balconies and shady Patios.
The Walled Town is surrounded by Las Murallas, the thick walls built to protect it against enemies. The walls are an outstanding piece of Military Engineering preserved in remarkably good shape.

Daniel enriched our day in Cartagena with facts, anecdotes, personal stories and local lore. Despite the deluge of rain, everyone (8 of us) enjoyed the day and felt we had gained insight into the history and culture of, not only this city, but of the country as well. We had the opportunity to view many sites both on foot and from the comfort of the wonderful vehicle provided. Daniel spoke excellent English and was easy for all to hear. If you are looking for a great experience contact him.
