Cartagena de indiasJune 26, 2015 in Colombia ⋅ 🌙 26 °C
My last stop in Colombia was the colonial town Cartagena. I arrived there yesterday afternoon by bus and spent the rest of the day wandering through the cute little streets and eating coconut (here they first open it for you, so you can drink the coconut water, then they Resource the rest of the coverings so you can eat the rest, all that for only 4,000 COP = 1.40€).
Today at breakfast I met a nice American couple and joint their boat trip. We first stopped at Isla del Rosario to snorkel at its coral reefs, then we continued to Isla de Barú to enjoy the beautiful Playa Blanca. On our way, we were seriously begged money by a little guy paddling on a surf board. How would he have even transported the money?!?
In the evening, I went to see the football game (Colombia vs. Argentina, Copa America) with some people of the hostel. Afterwards, I met up with the Medellín guys to go out - a perfect last day.Read more
