Cartagena has a cultural treasure every traveler should know. Discover why when it comes to heritage, the answer is Colombia.

Cartagena as its inhabitants call it, ‘La Heroica’ (the Heroic City)— is known around the world as a must-go to destination in Latin America. But the city offers more than the usual touristic plans: it also shows the world the cultural diversity of its people. These are five plans one can’t miss in Cultural Cartagena.

During the afternoons, Cartagena’s Historical Center turns into one amazing show for all of those who gather around it. Whether because of the colorful brush strokes that are drawn in the sky at sunset, or its colonial atmosphere, or because of the talent display by urban artists, such as the dance groups that take the squares and parks and turn them into stages where the public enjoys with the traditions and folklore from the Caribbean.

Cumbia, Puya, Mapalé, Fandango, Porro, bagpipe rhythms, as well as some other representative dances, start performing as soon as the sun starts to hide on the horizon. The Plaza de La Paz and The Park de Bolívar become the perfect place for dancers to show the best moves of different local dances, while tourists, most of them foreign, enjoy with every step.
