THE STUNNING CITY RULED BY TOURIST GROUPS AT DAY AND HOOKERS WITH DRUG DEALERS AT NIGHT
It’s absolutely beautiful colonial town with the hookers and cocaine on every corner. If you’re not brave enough, better explore old town at day and don’t leave your casa at night.
The only place to stay is the walled Centro Historico. Beautiful old Casas, narrow streets, cozy bars and restaurants. I don’t even start talking about the colors - absolutely stunning. You don’t wanna leave it or go to the modern peninsula. Get ready your wallet - prices are not what one would expect - maybe slightly lower than European / American price level, but definitely not the third world costs.
Cartagena is a tourist destination not only for us, for Colombians as well (obviously the filthy rich ones). It seems that the most popular way to relax is getting a hooker. You must see the Clocktower square at night - I haven’t seen soooo many hookers in one place ever. You would basically need to get into the crowd of them to pick one.
Men escorts are ruling the Grindr. I guarantee you will hear the sad story of some Venezuelan boy who came to earn some money to Colombia. He will say he’s 21-23, but honestly, I would bet he is not even legal age. And that’s not only on Grindr - my friend was offered extra services by an Uber driver. When he asked for the definition of ‘extra services’ - d1ckpic was there to explain.
We all know it’s the origin of most of the world’s cocaine. Yes you will be offered - but please be extremely cautious - police often fake arrest people who do not have any drugs on them and ask for a bribe. I met one Dutch guy who still had handcuff marks on his wrists. Worse things would happen if they caught you having some.
I’ve read people stating that it’s gay destination - bullshi1t!! There’s just one super tiny bar and one third world level club. And they never get packed - locals don’t have money and foreigners get disappointed with the venues. But you can always buy the underage boy from Grindr and bring him there (please don’t!!).
