Population: 1 Million

Location: Caribbean Coast of Colombia
Weather: Tropical wet and dry climate, Avarage temperature is 27.8°C various all year long by just +-1 degree
My To-Do Tips: Climb the city walls for a perfect shot of both faces of the city, check out “Grecia Café y Suvlaki” at Cl. 36 #6-106, Cartagena – they are awesome!
My personal experience
After 2 hours of riding the collectivo from Palomino back to Santa Marta, 5 hours in the bus and one more in the city bus to old town i arrived with my travel buddy from Swiss in Cartagena. Cartegena is a very vibrant Million-people city at the caribik sea with a crazy mix between a gorgious old town, Skyline that looks like Miami and even for columbia extrem chaotic outer districts in africa style. Special for Cartagena is, that the whole old-town is surrounded by the old citywall. I liked Cartagena much:
