CARTAGENA Del Mundo | Ciudad Cosmopólita









Desde el New York Times de Estados Unidos hasta el Telegraph del Reino Unido, desde el
Expo Yosu 2012 en Corea del Sur hasta el Deustche Welle de Alemania, y en muchos eventos de talla mundial como el Hay Festival y la Cumbre de las Américas, Cartagena es la protagonista. Nuestro Corralito de Piedra es junto a Bogotá la ciudad más mencionada y recomendada de Colombia en el mundo, al igual que de las más reconocidas, por su turismo, su belleza colonial y caribeña y sus importantes eventos y reuniones.

Hace un tiempo había pensado en hacer este thread, en donde recopilar esas noticias, videos, imágenes y demás multimedia que venga de otros paises del mundo. Por mi parte me encanta conocer cómo nos ven en Europa, Norteamérica, Asía y en el resto de países de Latinoamérica.

En el siguiente post iré incluyendo los aportes clasificados por los países de origen.

Comencemos con los aportes :happy:

En esta oportunidad el diario más importante del mundo, The New York Times nos muestra la descripción de un fin de semana en Cartagena


36 Hours in Cartagena, Colombia



Scott Dalton for The New York Times
A carriage ride around the old city. More Photos »

By ERIC RAYMAN

Published: May 25, 2008

WITH its cocaine days in the past, the Colombian seaport of Cartagena has emerged as the belle of the ball. This tropical city on the Caribbean is pulsating like a salsa party, drawing well-heeled Latin Americans and European socialites to its restored colonial mansions, fancy fusion restaurants and Old World-style plazas. Other rhythms can be heard, too. Guitar players stroll through the cobblestone alleyways. Beauty pageants and dance festivals keep the city swinging after dark. And techno dance clubs keep Cartagena’s revelers up till dawn. But this stunningly beautiful city also has its quiet side. White sand beaches and crystal-clear water are just a short hop away.

A Weekend in Cartagena, Colombia




Map
Cartagena, Colombia


Friday

4 p.m.

1) STORMING THE WALLS

Cartagena is a city for walking, and its historic walled district feels like a Moroccan medina, with 300-year-old Spanish colonial buildings huddled along brick streets. The palette is saturated with deep blue, dusty rose, burnt orange and ochre. Cool sea breezes and plenty of shade make the old city feel quite comfortable even in the 90-degree heat. To get your bearings, wave down one of the horse-powered taxis (www.paseosencoche.com). The 15-minute ride across the old city, a Unesco World Heritage site, costs 30,000 pesos (about $17 at 1,800 pesos to the dollar). The coachman will point out sites as you clip-clop along and, at sunset, will light the candles in the headlamps.

6 p.m.

2) ROMANCING THE STONES

The 400-year-old stone walls encircling the city are surprisingly intact and stretch for more than two miles. Walk west along the wide plaza on top of the wall; the Caribbean is on your right, and the lovingly restored medieval streets on your left. For a sunset cocktail, stroll over to Café del Mar (Baluarte de Santo Domingo; 575-664-65-13; www.cafedelmarcolombia.com), grab an outdoor stool near the rusty cannons that once guarded the city, and order a Colombian piña colada (14,000 pesos).

8 p.m.

3) BON APPÉTIT

Cartagena features a rich culinary palate, combining flavors and ingredients from the Caribbean, Europe, Africa and even Asia. For a sumptuous but atypical meal, go around the corner from Gabriel García Márquez’s home to El Santísimo (Calle del Santísimo No. 8-19; 575-664-33-16; www.restauranteelsantisimo.com), where French-trained chefs prepare classic Colombian dishes with modern sauces served in a brick courtyard with dripping vines, soft breezes and candlelight. A favorite is prawns in a tamarind coconut sauce (45,000 pesos). Don’t skip dessert or, as the menu calls it, “the Sins of the Nun.” That would apply to La Envidia, a decadent mango mousse with a tangy grape sauce (18,000 pesos).

Saturday

9 a.m.

4) TOURING AT DAWN

There are few reasons to leave the old city, but one of them is to climb the massive Castillo de San Felipe (www.fortificacionesdecartagena.com), a huge fort built over the 17th and 18th centuries by the Spanish (or, more precisely, their slaves) to defend the port’s terrestrial flank. Start early before the sun broils everything. The fortress contains an ant farm of hidden tunnels that you can explore with or without a guide and that adventurous kids will love. A taxi from the old city is about 5,000 pesos; admission, 13,000 pesos.

11 a.m.

5) JUICY FRUIT

Take a fruit break. Palenque women peddle a rainbow of ripe fruit along the streets of El Centro, nearly all of it in nature’s protective wrappers: bananas, mangos, papayas, guamas, ciruelas, coconuts and guayabas. Try a níspero, a kiwi-shaped fruit with the texture of pear and the heavenly taste of chocolate, caramelized sugar and blackberry.

Noon

6) ART AND INQUISITION

Three must-see museums are within a block of one another and can be seen in under 30 minutes each. The Museo de Arte Moderno (Plaza San Pedro Claver; 575-664-58-15) showcases the fantastical works of Colombian artists like Dario Morales. The Gold Museum (Plaza de Bolívar; 575-660-07-78) is housed in a Baroque mansion and exhibits jewelry that eluded the Conquistadors. And, for those with strong constitutions, head across the plaza to the Palacio de la Inquisición (Plaza de Bolívar; 575-664-73-81), where rusted instruments of torture document the Roman Catholic Church’s efforts to root out heresy in the New World.

1:30 p.m.

7) WHAT’S IN A NAME?

The working-class neighborhood of Getsemaní has two popular restaurants said to be feuding over the rights to a name: La Casa de Socorro and La Cocina de Socorro. La Cocina is the fancier of the two. Locals seem to prefer La Casa (Calle Larga 8E-112, Getsemaní; 575-664-46-58), a diner that serves big portions of traditional Colombian seafood like shrimp and crab claws with coconut rice and red snapper with fried plantains. Lunch is about 50,000 pesos.

5 p.m.

8) TRY THESE ON

Native crafts like hammocks, clay figurines and colorfully painted wooden masks are available everywhere. For more unusual items, head to the stores along Calle Santo Domingo and Calle San Juan de Dios. Even if you’re not female and size 4, check out Colombia’s leading fashion designer, Silvia Tcherassi (Calle San Juan de Dios 31-11; 575- 664-94-10; www.silviatcherassi.com). The Abaco bookstore (Calle de la Iglesia 3-86; 575-664-83-38; www.abacolibros.com) stocks photography books featuring local architecture and artisans. And the Galería Cano (Centro Calle 334-11; 575-664-70-78) sells high-quality reproductions of pre-Columbian jewelry.

7 p.m.

9) WEDDING CRASHERS

Arguably the best time to visit one of the city’s magnificent cathedrals is at sundown, the wedding hour. And one of the most romantic is the 16th-century Church of San Pedro Claver (Plaza San Pedro Claver; 575-664-72-56). Guests start arriving around 6 p.m., dressed in white linen or formal wear (corbata negra). Follow them into the cavernous nave, lighted by candles and decorated with bouquets of fragrant white flowers. The strains of “Dona Nobis Pacem” resonate along the vaulted ceiling from the choir in the balcony while the bride and groom exchange their vows.

9 p.m.

10) REVOLUTION STOPS HERE

Beg or steal your way into La Vitrola (Calle Baloco No. 2-01; 575-660-07-11), a stylish restaurant that has become the gathering place of sophisticated Colombians. The atmosphere is 1940s Cuban, with sepia photographs of the owners’ friends, high ceiling fans and mahogany wine racks. On a recent night, three senior military officers in full uniform were at one table; a fashionable couple was at another, smoking cigarettes. The food is Nueva Colombiana, with specials like onion soup with pimento, cheese and crema de leche (11,000 pesos) and a baked grouper in a mango and passion fruit sauce (38,500 pesos).

11 p.m.

11) CARTAGENA SOCIAL CLUB

Cartagena is a musical city. In the late evening, a sea breeze freshens the air and the rhythm of trotting horses blends with the laughter and singing of friends gathered in bars, clubs and public squares. Take a table outside Donde Fidel (Plaza de los Coches 32-09) and order a Club Colombia beer. Then again, to hear live music, there’s no reason to leave La Vitrola, where on most nights a talented combo performs merengue, salsa and Cuban music. Sit at the bar and sip an aguardiente, the anise-flavored drink that’s a national favorite.

Sunday

9 a.m.

12) BACK TO NATURE

Slip back into nature at La Ciénega, a mangrove forest that teems with wildlife. Tours on a wooden canoe are available through Turinco (575-665-70-23; www.turincoctg.com, 30,000 pesos) and meet near the Hotel Las Américas (575-656-72-22; www.hotellasamericas.com.co). You’ll see kingfishers, herons and pelicans on one side of your boat and Cancún-style high rises from the other. Cross the road to La Boquilla, a popular beach along the sea. Find an umbrella, a hammock and a cool coconut lemonade.

THE BASICS

Spirit Air has started a new service to Cartagena from La Guardia, connecting in Fort Lauderdale, with fares starting at $513 for travel next month. Avianca Airlines flies from Kennedy Airport to Cartagena, with a connection in Bogotá, starting at about $530. A taxi to the old city is 10,000 pesos, about $5.60, at 1,800 pesos to the dollar.
The old city is bookended by a pair of medieval convents that have been turned into luxury hotels. Their monk architects knew how to design for comfort. The Sofitel Santa Clara (575-664-60-70; www.sofitelsantaclara.com), has 119 rooms, a spa and pool built around a colonial courtyard with tropical gardens. Rooms start at 555,000 pesos.
The other is the Charleston Santa Teresa (Plaza Santa Teresa, 575-664-94-94; www.hoteles-charleston.com). Once home to a Carmelite order, the hotel occupies a full city block and is built around a large courtyard with gardens of royal palms and tropical foliage. There is also a rooftop pool with spectacular views. Rooms start at 689,000 pesos.
For more modest budgets, the Casa La Fe on the Fernández Madrid Park (575-664-03-06; www.casalafe.com) has 14 comfortable rooms equipped with Wi-Fi, starting at 200,000 pesos. A breakfast of freshly squeezed tropical juice and eggs is included.

More Photos:

To get your bearings, wave down one of the horse-powered taxis — there's no better way to become oriented. The coachman will point out sites as you clip-clop along and, at sunset, will light the candles in the headlamps.




Arguably the best time to visit the city's magnificent cathedrals is at sundown. Here, night revelers converse beside a Fernando Botero statue in the Plaza Santo Domingo, the site of the oldest church in Cartagena.




While the rest of the world was looking the other way, the port town of Cartagena cultivated its own taste. Menus are sprinkled with bright vegetables and pungent spices, like cumin and coriander. With the Caribbean warming its shores, fish is abundant and the house specialty is always freshly caught something, rubbed with the fiery flavors so celebrated in this corner of the world.




A horse-drawn carriage makes it way through the streets during daylight hours.




The 400-year-old stone walls encircling the city are surprisingly intact and stretch for more than two miles. Walk west along the wide plaza on top of the wall; the Caribbean is on your right and the lovingly restored medieval streets on your left. For a sunset cocktail, stroll over to Cafe del Mar.

There are few reasons to leave the old city, but one of them is to climb the Castillo de San Felipe, a huge fort built between 1639 and 1747 by the Spanish (or, more precisely, their slaves) to defend the terrestrial flank of the city.




Three must-see museums are within a block of each other and can be seen in under 30 minutes each. The Gold Museum, left, is housed in a baroque mansion and exhibits jewelry that eluded the Conquistadors.




For those with strong constitutions, head to the Palacio de la Inquisición, where rusted instruments of torture document the church's efforts to root out heresy in the New World. The souls of some 800 heretics were cleansed and their bodies pierced, burned or drowned.

The Huffingtong Post de Estados Unidos nos muestra esta curiosa foto de Hillary Clinton tomando en un bar de Cartagena.

Hillary Clinton Dances In Colombia (PHOTO)

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was photographed mid-dance move over the weekend, having a good time at the same club in Cartegena, Colombia at which she was earlier seen drinking a beer.


Clinton was in Colombia for the Summit of the Americas conference, and Reuters reports that Clinton enjoyed the break from her diplomatic duties.
"A US State Department official, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed Clinton went dancing at the bar. Asked if she had fun, the official replied: 'A lot.'"​
Clinton has showed off her dance moves abroad before. In 2009, she gave a little shimmy in both Kenya and South Africa.

HUMMMM... Y pensar que por esa rumbita casi se le arma rollo ya que a parte ser criticada por andar farreando mientras se encuentra de mision diplomatica lo hizo en un sitio llamado Havana... Como odia el gobierno americano al regimen cubano y por ende todo lo que este relacionado con esta bella isla que al final; como tal no tiene nada que ver con las diferencias politicas de un personaje en particular...

A mí por el contrario me pareció genial que esa señora pasara su buen rato por acá, eso demuestra la alegría y la hospitalidad del colombiano.

Este thread deberia llamarse Cartagena ciudad turistica o algo parecido
porque realmente la ciudad no es cosmopolita todavia.
Cosmopolita:

[Lugar] en el que convive gente de diferentes países: Nueva York es una ciudad muy cosmopolita.

De la RAE:

2. adj. Que es común a todos los países o a los más de ellos.

Bogotá y Cartagena son las cosmópolis colombianas por excelencia, aquí uno se encuentra gente de todo el mundo y no se maravilla, o sea ya hace parte de la costumbre de la ciudad. Deberías pasarte por acá estos días y te darás cuenta de lo que hablo.

Totalmente de acuerdo con Liux, por estos días (principio de año "temporada") mas que todo el año (porque es un fenómeno de siempre en Cartagena) se forra Cartagena de eventos de cualquier indole, talla Nal e Internal, sumado sus atractivos turísticos lo que promueve la visita masiva de extranjeros, propios y locales.

De Tatler, una revista del Reino Unido viene esta publicación sobre un hotel en Barú y que hace parte del Travel Guide del 2012:

Travel Guide 2012




AGUA BARU


All is quiet, swinging-chair bliss. Forget sand. And it’s not even about the water. It’s just absolutely the place to go to escape the world’s hubbub. Buzzing, cool Cartagena with all its cobbles and salsa and cups of sticky hot toffee is only 25 miles away on the hotel’s immaculate speedboat, but this is a waterside hilltop haven of restfulness – wooden, architectural, just stunning – where the most arduous activity is walking from the decked jetty to your own private villa. The whole place only sleeps a maximum of six, but it’s big enough that you never need see another guest (irksome, actually, since they’re often rather interesting writers and Hollywood actors for whom the 5HTP happy pills haven’t panned out). Nature is a big feature of Agua Barú – the ethos is smart, not sanitised, which is just as well as the hotel lies just next to the Rosario Islands National Park, a protected area of 30 emerald-treed, sandy-beached islets. Who knows how much they’ve spent here – the roof space is vast, with handcrafted pillars of intricate beauty. Decide your menu for the week, then it’s all brought across specially from the mainland: great-but-simple grilled fish, deep-fried plantain and coconut rice (people often come here for a light detox, consciously or unconsciously). Then just play backgammon in the breeze and drink in the silence as the plankton sparkles in the moonlight.

Romantic Wedding and Honeymoon Destination: Cartagena, Colombia

"I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Sofitel Santa Clara in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, for their annual wedding showcase. The event was absolutely stunning! Although tying the knot in Colombia might not be the easiest option for Americans, the hotel would be perfect for a civil ceremony or a super romantic honeymoon.

Event Spaces:

Catholicism is widely practiced throughout Colombia, and most traditional bodas (weddings) take place in a church or cathedral. The Sofitel Santa Clara has this covered, thanks to the fact the property is a 400 year-old converted convent. The main wedding venue is an impressive chapel with a dreamy, old-world feel: dramatic, high ceilings with exposed beams, large wooden doors, wall alcoves and romantic chandeliers. Whether you envision a large, grand affair or a small, intimate gathering, the space can be transformed to whatever your heart desires. For a non-traditional outdoor ceremony and reception, opt for the hotel’s terrace overlooking the ocean.

Style is at the heart of the Sofitel brand, and the hotel works with a team of top-notch vendors, from planners to caterers to cake designers. Here are some of the unique creations from the wedding showcase:

Personal Highlights:



Old City Tour
As a UNESCO World Heritage site, Cartagena in itself is a magical place. I got to experience this firsthand with a walking tour of the old city, led by Marelvy Peña-Hall, a Cartagena native and expert. She took us through the narrow streets and main plazas of the walled city, while giving us an extensive and fascinating history lesson.



Horse-drawn Carriage Rides

Sure, taxis are options for getting around the city but choose a honeymoon-worthy form of transportation at least once: a horse-drawn carriage. As night falls, the click-clacks of horse hooves on cobblestone echo throughout old city as carriages escort patrons to dinner and dancing. Some drivers will also give a city tour, but if you don’t speak Spanish inquire beforehand if the tour can be en inglés.



Café Havana
Although I am undoubtedly a gringa, I have a huge appreciation for Latin music and dancing. I fell in love with Café Havana, a little slice of Cuba in Cartagena. The place was packed with locals and tourists alike, all getting down to a live band. It’s a great post-dinner spot to shake your stuff, but I was happy to just sit and watch other people salsa and merengue."
