Portal de los Dulces - Market Cartagena - Colombia

Strange Caribbean sweets can be found throughout the day and evening along the Portal de los Dulces arcade. Here, stalls display glass jars stuffed with chocolates, flavored rock candy, coconut delights, dried fruits and other treats like muñecas de leche (“milk dolls”) or bolas de panela (brown sugarloaf balls) that will make your sweet tooth ache. Some may not look appetizing, but, if you’re in Cartagena, you should give at least one treat a try. The Festival de los Dulces falls in March in the Plaza and features an even stickier assortment of sweets.
