Cartagena, Colombia

Now, Cartagena is a relaxed holiday city of cobbled streets, colourful colonial buildings and outdoor cafes exuding live music and well-heeled coffee drinkers. Stylish shops are filled with artisan handicrafts and emerald jewelry; restaurants serve a cosmopolitan blend of fresh seafood and international cuisines. There's plenty of culture when you're looking for it, but, for most locals and visitors, daytime life is relaxed and languid, while the cooler nighttime turns the city into one vibrant and beautiful party.
