Bocagrande – Cartagena Colombia
Bocagrande is very close to the historical center, another of the most visited sites in the city. You can see tall buildings there which enjoy the coveted view of the sea, luxurious hotels, commercial centers, bars and restaurants with a wide selection of “fritos” (a local name for snacks), and typical coastal drinks and food. Among the most popular snacks, really stand out: “arepa con huevo”, a kind of flatbread made with corn flour and filled with an entire egg plus beef or chicken, and “carimañola”, made with manioc, cheese, eggs, and beef or chicken. There are also other typical and delicious foods which are mostly based on coconut and various kinds of seafood. Make sure you don’t leave Cartagena without drinking a tasty coconut lemonade or eating a plate of delicious coconut rice.
In the neighbourhood Bocagrande, just across the San Martin avenue, is the Bocagrande beach, which is the most visited beach in the city because of its proximity to other touristic sites.
