A City of Culture, Food and Color: Our Site Visit to Cartagena, Colombia
I’m am beyond excited to share with all of you our recent site visit to Cartagena, Colombia. Our travel team, Bill Glockner, Maribel Venegas and I (Nikki Nixon, Hirsch Director of Marketing)traveled to Cartagena in May to experience the beauty of this city and plan our amazing customer trip happening in May 2020. For any of you who are wondering, is this a destination I want to go to? What is Cartagena all about? You’ll want to read on and hear why Cartagena is a destination you don’t want to miss out on. Leading up to our recent site visit, my only knowledge of Cartagena is what I was able find on Google and what I heard from friends and family who have visited. I know that Cartagena is rated as one of the top 10 destinations in the world to visit providing a good balance of history, food, and culture, however, I still had many questions and needed to experience it for myself.
In a nut shell, Cartagena lived up to everything I imagined it to be and so much more. It’s a safe, beautiful and magical city. I fully understand why this colonial city is one of the most popular destinations for tourists to visit. Its narrow colonial streets, ancient walls, grand plazas, and Spanish-style houses with their giant doors and wooden terraces, phenomenal restaurants, incredible nightlife, make this city a place everyone will want to go back to again and again. Here are a few of my favorite experiences in Cartagena. This is just a taste of what’s in store for you when you join us next year.
