OFFICIAL VIDEO: Cartagena, Colombia
At LatinFlyer.com and the companion blog, LatinFlyerBlog.com, we’re working to create a reliable source not just of reviews, insider information and photos, but also of videos that can give you an even more complete picture of each destination we cover.
The tourism office for Cartagena, Colombia, has produced this video highlighting some of the city’s main attractions as well as its facilities for meetings and conventions, and while it’s certainly not an unbiased source, it’s got some beautiful visuals and gives a good general feel for the destination.
Be sure to sign up for the automatic (and free) update notices on this blog (and also at LatinFlyer.com) — I’ll soon be posting some home-made videos from Cartagena from my own recent visit — including general views of this lovely historic city, a tour of the Palace of the Inquisition (lots of nasty torture devices) and the bizarre shark feeding that takes place in a small aquarium on one of the nearby islands. And for my earlier roundups of some of the best new boutique hotels in the city, as well as great dining ideas (including excellent restaurants and the tempting giant hot dogs), just click here. (And if you have your own personal favorites for Cartagena, please leave a comment right here, or on the new LatinFlyer.com forum!)
