Venture into the real Cartagena with a tour of the Bazurto food market. Swirling with flavors from Africa, Spain and indigenous Colombian cultures, tourists often avoid this heaving market scene. It’s hectic, grimy, and a bit overwhelming. They’re missing out. Feel safe exploring this authentic look at Cartagena’s rich culture with the help of a local guide to maneuver the chaos and sample exotic Colombian fruits and foods found nowhere else.
This market takes you out of the charming old city and into the depths of local life in Cartagena. The Mercado de Bazurto is dirty, rowdy and huge. It is filled with intriguing items ranging from knock-off brand name sports gear to some of the most fresh and exotic Colombian ingredients not found in the supermarkets. Being wary of thieves and locals, tourists don’t tend to venture into this market often or alone. But if you are an adventure-seeking traveller, this market is worth a visit for the cultural experience alone.
We will pick you up from your accommodation to guide you around the City and introduce you to the local gastronomy as well as its influence throughout the years on Cartagena’s idiosyncrasy.
Your accommodation in the Old City or Bocagrande.
