CARTAGENA DE INDIAS, GPS GUIDED RESTAURANTS GUIDE:
The flavors of the food you can eat at Cartagena de Indias are as magic as the history of this beautiful port city located in the Colombian Caribbean coastline.
GPS mycity has just released a GPS guided tour with some of the most important Cartagena restaurants of all times.
At the tour you will have a complete knowledge of the gastronomy that can be enjoyed while staying at Cartagena de Indias.
From the local sea and typical food to the Arab food influenced by the Lebanese that immigrated to Colombia at the beginning of the 20th century. Remember that Cartagena de Indias is a very prominent port city since 1533 when it was founded by the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Heredia.
Cartagena is now one of the top destinations of the Caribbean due to the beaches, the history and the old city that seems like a timeless movie set. Very fine restaurants are also part of the touristic offer of this wonderful destination.
When coming to Cartagena you now have a complete guide to take you to best eateries of town. In this GPS guided tour you will know the restaurants that have defined the gastronomic scene that is now another attraction for the tourism that comes to this coastal city of Colombia.
Now that tourists from all around the world are getting to know Cartagena and telling the world the good times they enjoy, more and more are coming to know a really magical city that will surprise the newcomers. “When you come once to Cartagena, you keep on coming back again and again” says a Canadian tourist that was enjoying the view of sunset at the murallas (walls).
When coming make sure you have an arepa´e´huevo , that’s an egg arepa (arepa is a corn flour in form of a dish). It is a gastronomical feature that belongs to this area and that is offered in many places. Also I suggest the shrimp cocktails in Cartagenero style that you can find around the city center.
Look for the chambaculeras, they are those pinturesque dressed black ladies that offer fruits on their bateas (trays) that usually carry over their heads. Try the patilla (watermelon) or the piña (pineapple) or maybe you will go for the green or red mangoe.
Eating in this marvelous city is an experience that will give the restaurant goers the privilege not only to be delighted with the food, but also by the history that represents each of the restaurants, its original plates and recipes, the locations where they are at and the hand of the owners that in some cases are families that immigrated to Cartagena from other countries and regions.
This blog is part of a series of tourism and restaurant guides of Cartagena and Colombia that Top Colombia Tips keeps on publishing.
