Cartagena: Traditional Market Tour and Tasting

Cartagena: Traditional Market Tour and Tasting


Discover our Cartagena Traditional Market Tour and Tasting with a local official guide. We will browse around shops selling traditional products and local specialties of the Santa Florentina marketplace, work of Lorenzo Ros inaugurated in 1953.

We will start this accessible tour at the Monumento a los Heroes de Cavite. The local guide will discover to you the history and beautiful architecture of the old city as we make our way to the marketplace. You will stroll among stalls overflowing with fruits and vegetables, immersing yourself in the atmosphere of a traditional market. We will see why the area around Cartagena is referred to as the “orchard of Europe.”

During the tour, we will enjoy the market’s selection of cheeses, cold cuts, smoked and fresh fish, and spices. The guide will take you to their favorite stalls to sample some selected seasonal products. Then, you will understand the magic of this kind of marketplace, where you will find great quality products with an affordable price. As a tip, we will recommend that you buy some local food or a souvenir to take with you and remember our Cartagena Traditional Market Tour and Tasting experience.

Afterwards, we will visit the historical center. Here you can admire the beautiful examples of modernist architecture of the early twentieth century. And finally, you will have free time before we return to the ship on time.
