Cartagena has much more to offer besides the San Felipe Castle, the Rosario Islands, and the Clock Tower or Torre del Reloj. Another place you should definitely visit is the Bazurto Market, one of Cartagena’s hidden gems; not a very common touristic destination, but that’s just what makes this “underground” experience worthwhile.

The Bazurto Market has everything you could ever need, it is a traditional vegetable, fish, meat, fruit, clothing and even art market and it is as much a symbol of Cartagena as the formerly mentioned ones. This tour is only for adventurous souls that want to take a peek into the lives of the real inhabitants of Cartagena.

You will be amazed by the market’s complexity once you step into it and allow yourself to get lost in this adventurous labyrinth made out of multiple food stands. At every corner, you’ll have the opportunity to taste some food and drinks. If you want you can buy your ingredients here and afterwards prepare a traditional Colombian meal, or just enjoy the magical atmosphere of this place vibrant with color and life.

After we visit the herb market, the music market, and the arts and crafts section of the market, we will get to the market’s cafeteria where we will have lunch.

The market, just as everything else, is a place with many good things and other that aren’t as good, but taken as a whole, these things are what add up to the entire essence of the scene and make of it an unforgettable experience; it would truly be a shame to skip this amazing market. The market may have the smell of freshly caught fish and the messy look of a hectic business, but it is, by no mistake, a buoyant and enchanting place. An authentic Bazurto market is a place where all you will see is big smiles and people gladly willing to help you. Don’t miss this jewel and discover the real Cartagena!
