As you may know I’m from Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Which pretty much means that most of the plans include the sun, the sea and a cold drink.
You could say that it’s like living in a never-ending summer.
If you’ve ever been to Cartagena or plan on visiting you should be aware of certain places that will make your visit more fun!

Here are some TIPS for a good day at the beach
- If you plan on getting a tan, use good tanning products. Don’t just go for the cheap ones. If you want a good long lasting tan it is important to use the correct one and to use it properly. I you plan on tanning while only using sunscreen it’s very likely your skin will end up red and the tan color you’ll get after will not last long. And BTW always remember to hydrate your skin after a long day at the beach if you don’t want to end up with you skin peeling off. I will totally recommend BananaBoats bronzer.
- Don’t forget to drink water, after all you are under the sun all day and you may dehydrate without realizing it. And in a city like Cartagena, YOU WILL NEED WATER.
- Always bring music with you. Its the best way to spend a day at the beach with your friends, Music makes everything more fun.
Oh and by the way, Don’t worry about finding a beach spot. There are plenty, Just take a look at the pic below. Wherever you go, you’ll find the sea!
And just because you can find water no matter in which directing you go, it also means you are able to see a perfect sunrise and a perfect sunset. That let me tell you, are extraordinary and will leave you speechless.
One of the great things about Cartagena is that as you can see in the picture, there is a very nice city life, but just by driving a couple miles from anywhere you are, you’ll find historic places and amazing street art. So yes, you might want to take your camera with you wherever you go, there are a million amazing spots for great pictures.
You will find colorful stands selling fresh fruits everywhere as well as selling juice of every since fruit you can imagine. That is one of the perks of being in the tropical part of the country.
Places like Cartagena are so diverse that you can literally experience many things by just being there for a day, there is amazing art as I said before, extraordinary music, great food, very nice people and it’s definitely the place where I would spend the rest of my life. And I’m not just saying this because I am from Cartagena, but because it has everything and living in Cartagena it’s like living on vacations. It has just the perfect environment to be surrounded by.
Of course, the whether can be a little tough from time to time, but it not something that won’t let you enjoy everyday.
I just love Cartagena so much and it’s true, there is no place like home ❤
