Day 9: BAZURTO MARKET & SALSA LESSON
Today it is time to discover the real face of Cartagena. You are expected at 10:30 for a tour that will bring you to the Bazurto market or ´People Market´ of Cartagena. This special, and also a bit messy, place is very animated and full of colors, interesting food, smells, and energies of the many vendors who sell their products at this market. You will get a real impression of the typical warmth of the people living at Colombia´s coast.
It might feel a bit unorganized at the beginning but it is the ultimate chance to see the real face of Cartagena and its people. In this guided tour of 3,5 hour in English you will be introduced to typical dishes, ingredients, and fruits and vegetables from the region. Additionally, you will meet charming locals and have the chance to take unique pictures.
In the afternoon you can relax in the hotel and mentally prepare yourself for a salsa lesson. The dance school is located in the historic center of Cartagena and at walking distance of the hotel.
