5 Things to Do Off the Beaten Path in Cartagena

Angie Arias

When you visit Cartagena de Indias, your first stop will most likely be the historic center, also known as the Walled City. While the Walled City may be a highlight of Cartagena, it is also the area most crowded with tourists. If you are looking for ways to experience Cartagena like a local and escape the tourist crowds, you’ll need to explore beyond the walls of the center.

Here are 5 things to do off the beaten tourist path in Cartagena to help you get started:

1. Stroll Along the Bay in Castillogrande

Castillogrande is an upscale residential neighborhood located just 10 minutes from the Walled City. It sits directly on Cartagena’s bay and features a long pedestrian walkway along the water. In the early morning and evening, residents of the neighborhood clamber onto the well-maintained walkway to enjoy a jog, bike ride, or stroll with a great view. This is an excellent place to connect with local life in a way that most tourists never experience. Grab a seat on a bench and watch the people and boats come and go.
