28. – 30. Mar 2019
Having arrived in Cartagena, we took the bus to the city center where Dora Hostel was located. Feeling a bit exhausted because of the stressful check-in for the flight (we tied both backpacks together to count as one and the airline staff was VERY strict and annoying), we chilled in the hammock for a bit before taking part in a free walking tour through the old town.
That night, we discovered this amazing city in the dark and had some drinks with Maten from Israel whom we had met at the airport earlier.
The next morning, we strolled through the city again before going to Playa Blanca, a nice beach about an hour away, where we got on a boat that took us out in order to swim with glowing plankton in the ocean. What a magical spectacle! 🙂
Having had our favorite hot dogs at plaza de la Trinidad again but no drinks, we were able to get up early the next morning and get on a tour to volcano El Totumo where we took a mud bath in the crater – a truly unique experience and, as it is said, a blast for the skin. Afterwards we felt like 10 years younger. 😉 Then, we went to a nice hotel to get lunch and take a swim in the ocean and the pool. What a great day! It ended in the bus to Santa Marta…
