Cartagena Video, part 1 – The LatinFlyer.com Video
If you checked this blog a few days ago, you’ve already seen the “official” tourism video produced by the tourism office in Cartagena. Now it’s my turn. Here’s my own personal version of a city tour of Cartagena de Indias, based on my recent visit. During Part 1 of the video, I’ll tell you a bit about the history of this landmark port city on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, then highlight some of the main attractions and even show a bit of the live dance and music performances you can enjoy while there.
In upcoming videos, I’ll include dining, shopping, hotels, torture devices (at the Inquisition Museum) and even some bizarre shark feeding at the nearby Rosarios Islands.
If you have any special memories or recommendations, or questions for your upcoming visit, please send them along. (And if you’re addicted to keeping up on the absolute latest news and talk about travel to Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean, follow me on Twitter!)
