TOURISM OFFICE VIDEO: Cartagena, Colombia

At and, 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 view of a variety of destinations.
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 place.
Be sure to sign up for the automatic (and free) update notices in the right-hand column — 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 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 visit or click here. And if you have your own personal favorites for Cartagena, please share them here and on the new forum on the main site!
