What you'll do

"This experience got 3 stars of 3 by Frommer's Travel Guide" Let's meet at Exito Sandiego supermarket at 10 am . We will go then to the public market by bus where I am sure you will be in love with this amazing community . I will introduce you to my wonderful friends in the marketplace who have become more of an extension of my family. This experience changed my life everyday by seeing all the hard work of people to support their families. My hope is that stories your will hear, could change your life too. We will also learn about local rhythm ( champeta) and dance so please don't be shy and let's have fun. We will eat some delicacies from the world renowned Cecilia's Restaurant. This restaurant was visited by Anthony Bourdain ate in 2008. We will try the local soda, beer and sample delicious fruits. We will then come to visit my family's house just 5 minutes away. The table will be set with an amazing lunch cooked by my aunt. We will eat in an amazing local's home environment. You will be part of my family for 1 hour. I will introduce you to Mr. Birth, my uncle. We will talk about the local's life and you can take pics of the birds and Lola my pet. This is not a tour, this is more than an experience, this is an adventure of how to discover to be a local in Cartagena. I am happy my job is my hobbie, It would be amazing if you can enjoy this hobbie with me.

Maria Isabel

Hola I am María, a local who loves Cartagena. After visiting 10 countries and living in USA for 6 months I realized how wonderful is my culture so I quit my job ( Quality Consultant for healthcare) and I started my project of my life "Discover Cartagena by Locals", a travel agency that designs local cultural experiences of our city for you to enjoy. I have given literally all my heart, love and effort into this project to give the MOST unique experiences you can have here. With the Caribbean culture in my blood, I am a friendly, fun, and outgoing person, willing to share a piece of my culture with each traveler, while helping my community at the same time. I will be happy to show you MY CARTAGENA, and share a laugh together. You will receive a FREE BIG HUG and by the end of our time together, you will become my new local friend.

More tips

The public market is a noisy place, where the smell can be strong sometimes, so if that its not something important for you, then join this experience. I advice to wear comfortable and close shoes.
