Cartagena, Columbia

Good morning!

Good morning!

After breakfast (terrific cappuccinos!) we divided in to four groups for day. Perhaps the most adventurous drove to the Volcan de Totumo to jump into the 65 foot tall volcano and soak in the volcanic mud known for its skin-enhancing properties. Another group took a city tour including horse drawn carriage, with stops at the Gold Museum, the San Pedro Claver Church, and the Santa Catalina Cathedral. Lastly, a boat ride out of the surprisingly modern and developed harbor (shades of Miami?) and then a 45 minute ride out to the Rosario island archipelago for a quick dip, shop, beer, and snorkel. We are all enamored with Cartagena, and celebrate the city and the country with a sunset cocktail cruise complete with pirates and live music! Another terrific day.

Beautiful "old city" Cartagena.
