Cartagena, the most important port in all of Latin America and the place we chose to spend our Christmas celebrations. Three blissful nights in the spectacular boutique hotel Bantú in The Walled City and several previous nights in the edgier Getsemani neighbourhood and backpacker famous Calle Media Luna. Baileys by the rooftop pool on Christmas Day as the festivities echoed the rooftops around us. The city itself during Navidad is drenched in glistening fairy lights and soaked in general Christmas spirit, Cartagena was definitely the place to be for Christmas. There is no doubt about that.
