What you'll do

THIS IS A PLAN to be a local for a couple of hours with your new friend Maria or Liz. As much you will eat, as much you will learn about my culture. You will learn about the stories behind every receipe and every spot. Let´s meet at "Exito San Diego Supermarket". From there we will walk to the first spot where we will eat "fritos" and some local juices. Then we will try some " arepas", "chinese empanadas", Patacón with cheese, local sweets. This is an experience to be able to eat like a local and have fun like one. I will teach you the conection of these receipes and the life in neighborhoods, and for sure I will introduce to you all my friends.
You will try 8 receipes, local juices, local soda, some local sweets and exotic fruits.

Hola

I am María, a local who loves Cartagena. After visiting 10 countries and living in USA for 6 months I realized how wonderful is my culture so I quit my job ( Quality Consultant for healthcare) and I started my project of my life "Discover Cartagena by Locals", a travel agency that designs local cultural experiences of our city for you to enjoy. I have given literally all my heart, love and effort into this project to give the MOST unique experiences you can have here. With the Caribbean culture in my blood, I am a friendly, fun, and outgoing person, willing to share a piece of my culture with each traveler, while helping my community at the same time.
I will be happy to show you MY CARTAGENA, and share a laugh together. You will receive a FREE BIG HUG and by the end of our time together, you will become my new local friend.

Maria was amazing. She was so knowledgeable about the history of Colombia and about the food. The food was amazing. We couldn’t decide which stop we liked best. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone and everyone. Worth every penny. Not only was she wonderful during the tour but she sent us recommendations on what to do and see during our visit.

Liz is absolutely amazing for this tour. She took us to so many authentic local spots for local delicacies that I’d otherwise never dare to try by myself. Cartagena’s famous Fritos is such a big part of its culture, and Liz has this amazingly infectious energy that brings out the most amazing part of the city- the friendliness, passion, food, and sunshine. We were all so full by the end of this trip- definitely come hungry. Highly recommend this to anyone. 10/10
