MY CARTAGENA CITY GUIDE

cartagena

Hello Girls,

I was walking the streets of Cartagena in my yellow mellow outfit from Carolina Herrera.

I wanted this post to be, one of my spanglish post as I am in Cartagena and would like to mix it up. I loved eating my mango biche and speaking with this cute palenquera, Julia! 

Restaurants:

La Vitrola : La Vitrola translates into jukebox in English which is a place for friends and family to chill and soak in the vibrant Cuban culture. In short, I love this restaurant because here is where I celebrated the dinner before my wedding with family and friends. Mojito’s are amazing and the live band. 

Don Juan: El robalo y hummus de remolacha, ravoli de setas, tiradito de salmon, bolitas de guineo es un must mientras estás en el Caribe. It’s a fun and trendy spot. 

Harry’s (Hotel Santa Teresa): I love the beautiful patio it makes a perfect scenery to have lunch or dinner. Above all, you must order the nachos with crab, mero curado con limon and the Limonada de Coco. It’s a kid friendly place so it’s nice to go with my family. 

Carmen: If you love floor images this is a must place to visit, the tiles are super cute. An appetizer you have to order are the Carimañolas. La pesca del día it’s a must pargo platero y el postre de fresas con crema are a classic, there has been times I only go for that dessert. 

Juan Del Mar : Uno de los íconos de la Plaza de San Diego. Lindo para sentarse en la plaza y tomarse un trago. Therefore, you should go inside to take some Instagramable images. 

El Baron: It’s a cozy and cool place with a liquor bar. Drinks para tardear ubicado en la Plaza de San Pedro Claver.

Colette: Is a classic french bistro located in beautiful Plaza San Pedro Claver.

MisturaEste restaurante empezó en mi ciudad, Medellín y ahora esta localizado también en Cartagena en la ciudad vieja. 

Club de Pesca: This is an icon of Cartagena and the best place to watch the sunset. La bahía es muy linda para ver el atardecer. 

For Dancing:

La Havana: It is one of my favorite places to dance salsa. I make sure I party here every time I come. 

La Jugada: If you wanna enjoy Colombian music with nice people from the area, this is the place! 

Bazurto Social Club: A bailar champeta, reggae se dijo. It’s a fun place to have drinks and learn different moves. Above all, music keeps the spirit happy.

Shopping:

Agua de Leon: In the heart of the historic center, is made up of Colombian designers and has an enchanting bar. There you can get my sister accessories

St Dom: Features high-end Colombian designers with fashion-forward creations, from  Johanna Ortiz clothing, Entreaguas beachwear, to Ballen Pellettiere handbags.

Casa Chiqui: It is located in a 1930s warehouse restored by Chiqui herself and has become one of my favorite destination. Casa Chiqui has magical finds when strolling around Cartagena, it’s a must stop.

Maygel Coronel: A beautiful newly opened boutique with many talented Colombian designs. 

Territorio: This a cute shop to buy artesanal work so I love to get beaded bracelets that makes perfect gifts for my friends at home. Un lugar fantástico para comprar artesanías. 

Hope you enjoy Cartagena la fantastica! xx
