Travel Blogs from Cartagena
We took a door to door minibus to Cartenga. Little did we realise that the first hour would be spent driving around Santa Martha.
We arrived at our hostel "media luna". To be honest it wasn't much to look at, a refurb was badly needed.
When we were checking in I got talking to two guys who had a boat leaving in three days time …
We left lovely Tagenga in a surprisingly nice air-con free minibus and arrived four hours later in one of the Caribbean's most beautiful cities, Cartagena.
We stayed in the backpacker area called Getsemeni, which is where we got a real feel for the local life. Men were playing dominoes and drinking beer on street corners.
After just over a month in Costa Rica, and a month in Panama, we arrived safely via sailboat (Gitana III) in Cartagena.
Cartagena is a gorgeous city. It is full of color, and culture. The street food is amazing! Don't miss out on the Brocheta (which is basically shish kabob) on the grill. There are many small restaurants that have great …
Ich bin noch immer kaum in Weihnachtsstimmung, das Wetter macht es mir auch nicht leicht. Mal sehen ob das heute noch besser wird. Jedenfalls erstmal Fruehstueck in einer Baeckerei, extrem billig. Dann mache ich mich auf die Suche nach einem Boot nach Panama. Am 7. Jaenner gibt es gleich 2, ich kann mich aber nicht fuer eins entscheiden. Abwarten …
Um 12:30 wache ich auf. Schnelle Dusche, Wäscherei und ein Stück Pizza. Dann buche ich eine Tour zum Schlamm-Vulkan. Milton kommt auch mit, als um 13:30 der Bus fährt.

Luna's Castle is located right in the heart of Casco Viejo, which is the old city of Panama. We arrived, looking to get some info on a sailing trip to Colombia, and were greeted by the skipper of one of the boats right after we arrived. The hostel is 3 stories high, and has a bar down in the basement level. It's a cool bar, but plays very loud music pretty late at night, so if you're staying there, and want some quite, I would recommend getting a room up on the top floor. Ours was right above the bar, so the thud of bass was rather constant all night...Cool place, one of the liveliest we visited so far. If you're looking for a sailing boat to Colombia, this is a great place to find one. They have tons of info!
