OVERVIEW

Get a real feel for the culture and cuisine of Cartagena while cruising the bay and by walking through Old Town. Founded in 1533, Cartagena exudes history, especially in the original walled section, which UNESCO deemed worthy of a World Heritage site designation. As you stroll through leafy plazas named for heroes such as Simon Bolivar – who liberated Latin America from Spanish rule – you will likely see vendors preparing street foods with enticing aromas. Free time allows you to explore further and gain an even deeper appreciation of the local lifestyle. Once you board the luxury party boat, you will have the opportunity to sample Cartagena’s unique cuisine and indulge in the open bar. The menu changes with the season and to reflect the freshest ingredients, but it will likely include stuffed arepas and pinchos, which are marinated grilled meats served on a skewer. If you like coffee, try a cup sweetened with panela, an unrefined sugar.
