  • First at all let´s  lay our cards on the table. This tour is outside the old city. The public market in Cartagena is not a fancy place. It can be dirty  sometimes and with a peculiar smell. So if you are the kind of traveler who loves adventure, experience a real culture and discover real people. This experience was designed for you.

    We will start taking the public transportation to the Public Market then our local guide will explain to you the Bazurto Market´s routine. The hustle and bustle of the daily life of vendors and locals as they flee in the heat of the Caribbean, to the boisterous sounds of champeta music.  The fascinating routine of the market envelops and bewitches with its magic. By this experience you will discover the fascination of the passages of the whole market, a labyrinth in which without a doubt, you will not want to miss!. 

    Then, we will visit  " Brussels" neighborhood, but not Belgium. In this neighborhood, we will have the pleasure of visiting a local family and sharing with them their experiences and anecdotes of what it is to grow a lifetime in this popular neighborhood,. We will share the exquisiteness of a homemade lunch with a variety of juices and exotic fruits!
