It's crowded and bustling but a thrill to get away from the tourists and see how real people in Cartagena live. The sheer amount of food blew us away. The music and rhythm are amazing. Wear closed shoes and just immerse yourself in the mayhem....More

Vibrant, authentic, sprawling market which is worth a wander. Visitors who complain about it being dirty have either not spent much time in developing countries or they have delicate sensibilities.

We've been to local markets all over the world--we love 'em--and this ranks up there with the "best." It's a given that these places are earthy--most countries eat ALL of their animals, not just the choice parts as in the U.S. You are likely to...More

Yes, we were there last month and used Cartagena Connections and they were fabulous. I would ask for Jan (John in German). We was excellent, knew all the nooks and crannies, what to eat, and spoke great english.
