I searched in the Web , in the English version of wikipedia you can find the movie for "Romancing the stone". One US women is looking for her kidnapped sister and will take in Colombia a bus ride to Cartagena but she failed the bus and take another direction...

It looks like it is right next to the hotel where I stayed.
It is a beautiful city with great history, castle, architecture, and of course, sun, beach and emerald.

About Cartagena

Actually if there ever was an argument for it, tall buildings don't make Cartagena, but they certainly add to it.

A UNESCO world heritage site, Cartagena was the most fortified city in South America. It founded by the Spanish in 1533 and was one of the major exit points of Colombian gold & precious stones for europe. The city has been attacked and beseiged by the British (inc Sir Francis Drake), the Spanish (after declaring independence), and was finally made a part of Colombia.

The preservation of the walls, the amazingly vibrant and colourful old quarter (within the walls), and the giant fortress have all contributed to putting the city on the UNESCO world heritage list. Cartagena is the one place, that despite Colombias problems, has had a stream of cruise ships for decades, one that has grown dramatically- last year something like 140 cruise ships stopped there.

It really is an amazing place to visit, and I am glad the see that the new part of the city is continuing to develop in a beautiful and modern way.



Here is an article that Conde Nast published about Cartagena about a year ago: http://www.concierge.com/cntraveler/articles/detail?articleId=10622
