Today vendors and shops, as well as a plethora of shopping and dining areas, seem to be endless and offer much in the way of entertainment and fun.
The beaches are wonderful and boast of beautiful sand and sun to make the chill of winter a distant memory. Enjoy some of the local refreshments and soak up the sun. A word to the wise is to make sure you pack plenty of sunscreen and be cautious especially at midday. Cartagena is near to the equator and the sun is very strong in this region.
The nighttime cools off from a temperature standpoint but heats up as the locals and tourists alike dance the night away in the many bars and nightclubs found throughout the city. The people of Cartagena take real pride in their dance and music and it is easy to get swept away by the wonderful Latin vibe. Cartagena is truly a wonderful vacation destination.
