Bazurto Market Adventure Tour in Cartagena
"I had two guides for this trip who were both sweet and kind and caring. It was like having friends take you to the market. They met me at my hotel exactly on time and we were off on our adventure. Although I will admit the food was my favourite part, this is so much more than a market tour. I learned so much about day to day life of Cartagenans. This is something you could do by yourself but, I would have missed SO much if it had not been for my guides, they showed me things I never would have found on my own, and enriched the experience with information only a local can provide."..."

"This was a great trip! Well worth the money to be picked up at your hotel, travel with a private group from place to place on a boat with music that’s not super super choppy, and to have guides take you from place to place. Jesus was great and very fun! We lucked out and had great weather and very few waves on the trip out to Rosario islands and back. All around an awesome experience, especially given that we weren’t familiar with the area. Bring your own drinks and snacks if you want! It was good to have a place to keep our things while we snorkled and hung out of the beach. Would 100% repeat"..."
