  • Good place for history buffs, I guess. But not much to see. Just a plaza, a statue and some buildings.

  • It's a beautiful building in the old city in Cartagena
  • I've been to Playa Blanca and Playa Tranquila with some friends from Spain, I'm sorry I went... maybe it's the worst place in the world... we've never seen so much dirt, disorder, disrespect, motorcycles and boats on top of bathers, leaving that smell of gasoline in Water. What a shame I've been through. Shacks, stalls, plastic, dogs, ABSOLUTE DISGUST. Authority???
