Here’s where to eat, drink, stay, and shop in Cartagena, Colombia.
After designing and sourcing our Colombia collection, Chrissie knows a thing or two about Cartagena. A colonial-era port city on the Caribbean coast, Cartagena is home to charming cobblestone streets and just a stone’s throw from turquoise waters and sugar-sand beaches.
Stay: Fashion designer Silvia Tcherassi’s hotel in the heart of the old city. Rooms are luxe and airy with unbelievable views of both city and sea.
Eat: La Cevicheria is a must-visit during any stay in Cartagena. This Bourdain-approved spot serves up incredibly fresh ceviche alongside frosty cervezas (beers).
Drink: Have you ever done happy hour in a converted convent above a historic crypt? Hit up El Coro Lounge Bar for cocktails and tapas to check that one off your bucket list.
Shop: We can’t leave Colombia without shopping bags in tow. Colombia Artesanal stocks a range of gorgeous (and colorful!) handicrafts, while El Cofre Del Caballero has the best selection of vibrant locally made artwork in town.
Honor: Support local artisans by donning a handmade bracelet or clutch from our Colombia Collection. Each item was made using handicraft traditions passed down through generations.
