1. Cartagena: Bazuro Local Food Market Walking tour

Bazurto, is one of those places that invite you to immerse yourself in the true local culture. This market has over 40 years of history and among its narrow streets that form a maze, it is worth getting lost. We will begin our experience touring its corners and tasting recipes that only locals are able to create. Between the noise and shouts of vendors we will enter to the real Cartagena, the one that few know and enjoy. In this experience we will interact with the vendors of this market place that for a lifetime have been dedicated to the sale of fruits, vegetables and fish. Taste the soda and the local beer because with the heat of this place it is important cooling off. Here we will learn from our local rhythm, the champeta (the sound of the Colombian Caribbean neighborhoods that made the Super Bowl 2020 dance through Shakira’s movements) we will know the reason for its name and the impact of its sound on the different social classes. We will visit Cecilia’s restaurant, the famous cook who fell in love with Anthony Bourdain with her recipes and Runner, the most famous poster designer.

BOOK THIS EXPERIENCE IF YOU ARE IN CARTAGENA! Believe me it is one of the highlight of our trip. Giovanni and Angelica were awesome hosts. It was not the usual touristy stuff, it was a personal experience outside the box. First Giovanni oriented us on how the tour will be, so it somewhat prepared us since it was a physical activity - and I am mostly sedentary 😅 But I was able to bike up the bridges! 😊 The areas where he brought us were not the usual place for tours and what enriched the experience more were Giovanni’s stories and explanations. It felt like we are traveling through Cartagena’s history. And the FOOD… the food was the BEST we had in Cartagena - and mind you we ate at a 3 Michelin star resto and it will not be at par with our Lunch at Bazurto. I don’t know how I can even describe it, did I just say BEST? 😄

We had a fabulous time living like Cartagena locals with Jesus leading the tour. Everything happened exactly as promised in the tour description - plus some! Folks who desire to go outside the walled city and learn more about local life should definitely take this tour. Jesus was everything we could ask for in a guide - great attitude, thoughtful explanations, and a wonderful shepherd through the huge Bazuro market. Thank you for a wonderful few hours during our stay in Cartagena!

The guide gave us exciting insights into the life and culture of the people in Cartagena in good English. An impressive tour that we can highly recommend.

The guide Jesus was amazing, very knowledgeable and we had a great time being local cartageans for the tour!

One of the best tours I've experienced! Great insights into the daily life of Cartagena.
