I took a flight from San José (Costa Rica) to Cartagena in Colombia. The city is founded in 1533 and used to be the main Spanish port in the Caribbean. Cartagena's walled old town has beautiful squares and it didn't get boring to wander the cobbled streets.
I stayed in Getsemani, the outer walled town, with its vibrant streetlife and international restaurants. In the evenings I enjoyed my beers on the Plaza Trinidad among the locals. One of these nights I caught up with the Scottish couple I knew from Punta del Diablo (Uruguay) four months earlier.
