About the tour

Simply put: One of the coolest districts in the world. On this experience you'll be greeted by the vibrant depictions of Caribbean life that have some to characterize Cartagena. You'll see art splayed out on the crumbling stucco walls of authentic Spanish Colonial buildings. What makes Getsemani so special and attractive is the charm of its streets, its people and its daily life, and the mood and vibrance of its spirit.
