    What to Expect
    Make your way to Cartagena's city center, where you'll meet your guide and tour group. The day's first stop is Getsemaní, one of the city's most traditional neighborhoods. Continue to the bustling Bazurto market to taste some regional delicacies and fresh fruit from a street food vendor. 
    In La Boquilla, take a canoe ride through the mangrove swamp, stopping at a local beach for a meal including a seafood platter, plantains, salad, and a beverage. Then, view a community project in the unassuming San Francisco neighborhood. 
    End your tour after 5 hours with a better understanding of the lesser-known side of Cartagena.
