We offer the real connection with the Cartagena culture outside the walls, the history of Cartagena de Indias after the Spanish crown and how its society has developed. We will start by taking a regular bus to go to the public market, once we reach the market the sounds, sights and flavors will host our visit. We will try as many things as we can such as Guarapo, the local soft drink, Costenita, the local beer and we will also learn a lot about the African influence on the culture of Cartagena through food and music, you should know that Cartagena has its own music genre , the champeta, led by the drum and the guitars is almost a religion that we are sure to present to you.
