My Colombian adventure is really takign flight.
Avianca’s next stop, Cartagena. Come along with me, Let’s Roam Colombia. In a word, the
walled city of Cartagena, Colombia is enchanting. The wall — created in the 16th century and
fortified many times throughout the Colonial era, did a fine job of keep intruders out
and allowing the city within to grow rich with palaces, convents and monasteries. And
now the very same wall is now what lures romantics from all corners of the world in. Inside the wall, you can’t help but fall in
love. But why? Is it the colorful and cultural mix of people who live and work together?
Is it the perfect balance of old and new, where convents are restored to modern boutique
hotels, and fine dining mixes with age-old recipes? Is it the relaxed way of life, where
the click clack of the carriage rides keep the day ticking on. Where a bike can get you
everywhere you want to go. Local Cartageneros no a thing or two about the romance here in
Cartagena, so Gerardo, what do you think the secret is? The wall, of Cartagena, well, nothing can
be more romantic than that! Since I was kid I always went there to make out with my girlfriend,
and people still do it. It’s been a tradition. That wall, where people flock just as the
sun sets, for that magic hour, those views, that ocean breeze. So whatever brings you
here, I dare you to visit and not fall in love!
