Cartagena is a vibrant and beautiful city in Columbia. It has become a hot tourist spot. The weather is tropical and is hot and muggy. The natives in Cartagena are selling everything from beautiful woven bags, jewelry, straw hats and other native goodies. Pack summer resort type clothing, think casual. Strapless and loose-fitting cotton dresses are everywhere. Cartagena women and visitors love to wear bathing suit bra tops, off the shoulder blouses and light weight cotton halter tops or tees with short shorts and pants. Big floppy straw hats and fedora style hats are popular. Sandals, flip-flops, flats and sport shoes work with everything here. One pair of shoes should be comfortable enough for sightseeing. Be sure to bring a bathing suit, beach or pool wrap and sun screen. No need to bring fancy clothes unless you are attending a special event like a wedding. Pack only clothing you plan to wear depending how long you will be there. It is possible to have some laundry done at your hotel (very reasonable). Tip: leave expensive jewelry at home but bring a Spanish dictionary. Bon Viaggio!
