Bazurto Market & Cooking Class
Cartagena’s culture, people and history can be discovered through its food and spending a morning or afternoon exploring the markets and taking a cooking class in the home of a local family is an ideal way to get under the skin of the city.
Your day begins with a traditional dish from Bazurto local market which will give you a flavour of the delights to come as you explore the stalls and shops piled high with exotic fruits, vegetables, grains and fish. This lively and colourful market is a fascinating insight into the daily lives of Cartagena’s population and a chance to mingle with the local people as they chat with friends, inspect the day’s catch and load up with ingredients for the day’s meals.
After soaking in the vibrant atmosphere of the market you’ll meet one of the local chefs and be taken to a family home in the historic heart of the city. Here, after a traditional welcome drink, you’ll join in with the preparation of a starter and main meal, which you can enjoy with a non-alcoholic drink and a dessert. A chance to experience the daily life and visit the home of a local family, this experience will also send you off with a deeper understanding of Cartagena’s cuisines and people.
The market can be busy and bustling and we would suggest wearing comfortable closed shoes.
