The best way to experience Cartagena is by foot. Cartagena has a long history, complete with pirates, rum, legend and lore; to make the sights you see more meaningful, visit a museum and the forts to get a sense of the fascinating events that have taken place in this Caribbean city. Walk through the plazas and along Las Murallas, the cityâ€™s famed wall, to enjoy the sea breezes. On a particularly lazy day, go to the beach. And for the snap-happy, be prepared to take lots of photographs of the colorful buildings.
