Bocagrande is a very tourist and commercial district of Cartagena de Indias. It can be defined as an open-door shopping center since this is where the largest number of international brand stores are located. When you see it from above, the neighborhood of Bocagrande draws an inverted letter L that starts at the naval base. It has two long stretches of coastline. On one side, the sea beats strong, wetting the street with its waves. On the other, the Caribbean is serene and placid.
