    Cartagena Street Food Tour

    The locals love their food fried and covered in sauce. If you’re familiar with the frito, you’ll know it’s one of Cartagena’s signature street snacks – crispy, golden-fried pockets of corn flour typically filled with ground beef and other delicious ingredients and covered in sour cream, guacamole and hot sauce. 

    Other street food delights include a plethora of fruits you have probably never seen before, lip-smacking ceviches and of course manna from heaven, fresh coconut water straight from the trees.

    We wanted to book the Bizarre Food Tour but it was unavailable for the day we wanted so This Is Cartagena arranged for an itinerary that gave us what we were looking for.

    We booked this tour based on the great reviews on trip advisor and because we wanted an overview of the many different types of street food we could eat for the rest of our stay in Cartagena!

    Organized a last minute private tour combining the city and street food. Our guide was excellent and flexible. We got to see and eat everything we wanted via private car and walking. Highly recommend to do in Cartagena!

    I did the Street food Tour with Cynthia and it was so worth it!! We spent 4 hours walking around Cartagena trying out all sorts of dishes, from street food to juices, arepas and a trip to the Bazurto Market for fresh seafood.
