Favorite thing: La Manga is an area of Cartagena that I liked very much. It's located on an island connected to the getsemani area via a bridge and it is outside the old city walls. It dates back to the beginning of the 20th century... it's neither old nor too modern, life.size i would say, and there's not too much traffic except at rush hours.
Fondest memory: La Manga ia an architectural delight... any houses there are very beautiful and some of them really first class. Quite a few houses are built in an unexpected Moorish or arab style, possibly reflecting the homelands of the people who had built them. I spent a happy hot afternoon searching for them.
Favorite thing: Cartagena has a nice mix of old and new. The old colonial town still has a strong presence in the city. If I were to visit one area of Cartagena, i'd say the impressive old colonial town will have to be the place... just stroll for a day or two and visit some of the attractions in the area.
