Create an itinerary including Plaza de Bolivar
Seek welcome respite from the hot afternoon sun at Plaza de Bolivar, a shady oasis in the center of Cartagena. The historic tree-lined square, which for centuries sat at the heart of Cartagena life, serves as an unrivalled spot for people-watching. Take a seat on a park bench and relax as local life whirrs by. You're bound to see plenty of talented street artists who drop by to perform their act, dip their hat, then move on to find a fresh crowd. Grab some local street food at one of the stalls surrounding the square while you wait. Plaza de Bolivar is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.
