When arriving by boat from Panama to Colombia, you will most likely end up in Cartagena where you might have to spend a few days to get your paperwork ready for the bike. 3 nights should be enough to get to know the city. The old town is a touristic attraction these days surrounded by big fortress like walls which were built back in the day to protect it from pirates. Before the walls were built, the city had been taken down and rebuilt a few times due to insurgents. Cartagena is a huge city these days with sky scrapers and over 1 million inhabitants but one of the only places worth visiting is the old town.

Here are some pictures
