Just 20 minutes outside of downtown Cartagena's "Old City" lies a well-hidden but must-see spot: This energetic, colorful, and unique market feels less touristy than El Centro, but that's the point! And folks, hard at work selling their merchandise, are always happy to see new faces pop by! Here you can buy a big bag of passion fruit, redsnapper, a bowl of fried rice with local crab, and pretty much anything else your heart desires! Anthony Bourdain came and filmed here - he was impressed and you will be, too. it's full of pungent smells, loud sounds, and a handful of 'unique' foods: like the ¨PONCHE¨ or capybara for sale. No pressure to eat! Join us for a fun excursion you wouldn't normally find with a tour bus.
