Cartagena Street Food Tour
With a diverse cultural heritage that traces its roots through Africa and Spain, Cartagena’s cuisine is a rich melting pot of flavours that can be explored, sampled and savoured on an afternoon’s walking tour of the city.
Within Cartagena’s grand city walls lies a labyrinth of cobblestone alleyways lined with restaurants, cafes and street vendors, all offering a taste of the varied Colombian cuisines that make dining in the city a highlight of any trip. The rich array of flavours, styles and cuisines found throughout the city bring to life Cartagena’s history, from the Spanish influence of the conquistadors to the dishes of the African slaves and migrants of the 19th century.
On this afternoon’s tour you’ll explore these flavours as you walk through the historic heart of the city, stopping off at various points to taste snacks and drinks prepared by local chefs. This is a chance to discover the city’s rich history, both gastronomic and cultural.
As you will be walking for around two miles, we would suggest wearing comfortable shoes and bringing a light lunch.
