Cartagena is a stunning architectural Jewell!

Therefore, if you are going to visit Latin America, then Cartagena must be on your bucket list.

Hence, a romantic weekend here is well spent, especially if you get a hotel close to the old town ramparts.

However, be aware there are cruise ships and it’s packed with tourists.

Nonetheless, if you take a detour, away from the hoards, you’ll find quiet backstreets to wander lost in thought.
