I noticed Cartagena listed as someone's least favorite port. ?Why? My husband has seen documentaries on it and is anxious to go there. He is an adventure racer, marathon canoer etc., looking for outdoor adventures. Any suggestions for tours etc. It is on our full Panama itinerary in November.
I thoroughly enjoyed my port stop in Cartagena, and can't wait to go back. We arranged a sightseeing trip of the city highlights on a van with a small group after exiting the cruise terminal. The old city was a photographer's dream. Be prepared to sweat while standing still. The humidty was quite high during my visit in Nov., although the driver assured us it wasn't even "hot" that day!! I do think it's a port where you need to exercise caution when venturing out on your own.
