Cartagena Barrios Local Culture Tour

Step beyond the historic city walls and wander into the traditional barrios of Cartagena. Hear from the local people about their life in the city’s outer neighbourhoods. Start to piece together the wider social and cultural picture of this enigmatic city.

Follow your local guide into the Bazurto market to taste some weird and wonderful local delicacies. Then you’ll take a canoe ride through the lush mangroves in La Boquilla, the fishing community in the north of the city. 

At the heart of this tour is the people, and you’ll get to absorb the local vibe and have authentic interactions away from the crowded city attractions.
