Just an hour flight from Bogota is Cartagena, a port city on Colombia's Caribbean coast. Julia and I along with our good friends that were in town visiting, stayed at a hotel inside the walled Old Town with its picturesque colonial buildings, cobblestone streets, and fantastic restaurants. Drinking a limonada de coco is a must to keep cool as Cartagena can be hot and humid. The seafood is also a must. Just about every restaurant we visited had some fantastic seafood with my favorite being the Snapper in a curry sauce from the restaurant Carmen. We took an "adventurous" hour long boat ride to Isla Rosario for a little relaxation and beach fun. Definitely returning.
