Home for the Holidays: Tata Travels to Cartagena

"I grew up on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, and I always loved to travel. Usually, my family would go to Cartagena, which is about an hour away from my hometown. Because I have spent so much time there, I really feel like a local when I’m back in Cartagena."

EAT

 Ely

“I do crave a healthy meal when I travel. Ely Repostería offers delicious healthy wraps, salads and desserts. For a sweet treat, I really liked the piñita, which is a traditional bread from Colombia´s coast.”

La Dulcería

“Every Cartagenero has been to this bakery and restaurant with tasty food. Their mango biche juice (green mango juice) and coconut lemonade are a must!”

SHOP

Saint Dom

“This concept store is located inside a beautiful 300-year-old historic house in the Old City, and has a well-curated selection of products from the best “up & coming” brands in the country.” 

Las Bóvedas

“Las Bóvedas means “The Vaults”, a building that served as military headquarters many years aho. Nowadays, the place is restored and has a bunch of souvenir stores, galleries, and antiques that are totally worth the visit.”

San Andresito

“It is a must to stroll by the street vendors in Bocagrande. It’s so much fun to see all the curious and unconventional knick knacks they sell, from colorful wigs to carved coconut monkeys!”
