The beautiful and remarkable side of our authentic Afro Cartagenera culture!
Cartagena is a city full of colors and smiling people that share a history of African heritage, and cultural transformations. Let us guide you through our Colombian Afro Caribbean history in the most colorful historic center, the walled city of the country!
This is a unique and rewarding experience to understand our rich Afro-Colombian culture and living heritage, an opportunity to explore the traditions, music, and cuisine of this vibrant community. Visit the most significant sites and landmarks within the walled city while learning about a collective past that has shaped our Caribbean present. It’s important to talk at first about the slavery to understand the stories of resistance, freedom and rebirth of the current local culture.
Gain a deeper understanding starting with the “independence cry”, meet the one and only black president of Colombia, and be delighted with the afro style through music, dance, gastronomy, and even fashion.
Let's take an immersive and enriching experience that is sure to leave a lasting impression, one that is not in books but on the streets and its people that will welcome you to the amazing Cartagena de Indias!
