• Getsemani

    The district of Getsemani, famous for its eccentric culture and bohemian inhabitants, is the perfect place to visit and stay in during your trip to Cartagena. Locals are accustomed to living alongside travelers from around the world and take great pride in sharing information, culture, and ideas with everyone they meet. It has been recently described by Forbes magazine as "one of the coolest neighborhoods in Cartagena". The Plaza de la Trinidad is the epicenter of this district. There you can enjoy something as simple as an egg arepa or as extravagant as a four-course meal. Getsemaní is a world apart, colorful and full of tradition, and it has quickly become the favorite place to travel for backpackers and young travelers who are looking for something less glamorous and more bohemian. Sophisticated restaurants offering international cuisine contrast with the street stalls of hot dogs, egg arepas and shops where you can get cold beer at very low prices. Walking around, you’ll get to see the well-preserved architecture of the colonial houses with their somewhat weathered facades adorned with breathtaking murals and eye-catching graffiti. Getsemani has a variety of commercial services for all your traveling needs, including clothing and grocery stores, repair shops and bicycle rentals.
