Walking tour in Cartagena

Mathilde Gallindo

Short tour, off the beaten tourist track of Cartagena, where Fabio guides me, who was born and raised both here and in Turbaco. He made me try some egg arepas, which were REALLY good. We continued the culinary tour to the town of Turbaco, about 45 minutes from Cartagena. We ate grilled chicken, REALLY delicious, the size of which we chose depending on how many people we had to share, accompanied by potatoes, cassava and an aioli sauce that was even better than the one that accompanied the egg arepas. The journey is also worth the detour, we pass through many neighborhoods in the south of Cartagena, which Fabio described to me as we traveled through the Transcaribbean, until we reach the road where the collectivos take us to Turbaco. Once there you can take a motorbike ride to the central square which has bars, restaurants and of course, music and a good atmosphere. Great tour, great guide, muchas gracias Fabio!!!!
