Cartagena, The best of both worls

Hello everyone.
These are some photos of Cartagena (Colombia's 6th city), as you will see Cartagena has both colonial and modern zones that makes it a very speciall city.

*The photos are worth it.

Colonial Zone









































































Bocagrande, Castillogrande y Laguito Neighberhoods







































City Views

¿Panamá?...not, Bocagrande







Zona Norte:a very fast developing zone.


















Barú:a beach near Cartagena





*The photos were taken by me.

Decíles de donde sacaste las fotos antes de que te cierren la trensa. Es una de las nuevas reglas.

Cartagena has never looked so good. Certainly the best photos I've seen of the city, thanks for posting them!

Self taken picture threads now go in the Urban Showcase section, not the Cityscapes one.

I visited when I was 5....... so of course I don't remember much of it. Though the city looks cool, typical carribean latin american city, you shouldn't be afraid to show the less sparkling parts of the city though

I'm not, but why would i show poor places if many people dont know the good places. By the way, I've never seen Paris's poor zones so you shoudnt be afraid of showing them either .

Great pictures! I love the combination of old low rise buildings with tall sleek new skyscrapers. It has great contrast. Thanks for sharing them with us.

It all depends on what you wish for this thread.

Do you want to give foreigners an occasion to discover this city.
Or do you want to give a false image like they do in tourism ads. Pretend the city is something it is not, at least partially.


I think it is good to show the totality of your city, not only because I personally find this much more interesting, but also because only showing one side is a form of propaganda, it's just bullshit in the end.

Of course some people only want to see the nice and shiny.

But those who only want to see that are not worth loosing time over, they are generally those who afterwards engage in mass tourism, not caring about local cultures, staying in massive resort towns.


PS: I never hesitate to show all sides of Paris, good and bad

First of all Cartagena is not my city. And, as I didnt go to Cartagena's poor places because like all tourists I like to go to the good zones, I didnt take photos of them.

Besides I bet that if I put poor zones photos anybody will see all the pics, in fact...this are photos of the best zones in Cartagena and nobody replies.

If you want to see my city's (Medellin) poor zones you can go here. I'm not afraid of showing them:

If you want to see the rich zones you can go here. I'm not afraid of showing them either.
