What you'll do

Lets get involved in to the warrior people culture who through the Market gain the life for himselfs and their families daily. The Bazurto market is a special place where many culturals breaks like the word champeta were born, this experience is not about places, is about people who have been in the market for more than 30 years and they will teach us how is to live in Cartagena from the Bazurto Market. We'll meet at MALL PLAZA EL CASTILLO, talking about how Cartagena has advanced as a city, we'll going to the Bazurto market walking and talking about the cartagena people culture, we'll try tipical juices of the coast, we'll study and dance Champeta music, it's history and how important it's in the culture of Cartagena, also we'll talk about salsa, vallenato and dancehall too all this music very important at Bazurtos and Cartagena, we'll meet about the neighborhoods around and important icons of the Bazurto Market and we'll see how happy are they making a living daily in the market, we'll eat tipical dishes of Cartagena made by Carbon like Anthony Bourdain right next to the Cecilia's pots, best chef of Bazurto and the most important, we'll be happy! While we do all this 60% of what you pay will be invested in the same people who are part of the Bazurto market community, following the win-win model, buying for you differents things and contributing to the economic activation through the consumption of foreign visitors to it. This experience beyond the market is about the people and culture of Cartagena.

Hello! I'm Danny, a young student of Business managment, born and raised in la Maria neighborhood, just in a side of Bazurto Market, home of Champeta music and the biggest sound system of Champeta, the king of Rocha. Over the years I have visited different cities of the country looking for new experiences and rubbing with new cultures, in all those trips I could identify that we are different but equal in all Colombia. We are a warrior race and we are always looking for ways to get ahead, I am an example since I have learned English on my own and this opened the doors to socially responsible tourism, where for almost 1 year I have worked showing people that our culture It is pure tasty and push
