4 star rating: Recommended October 2015

because I was slow walking, I could have used more time. I walked and gawked there was so much beauty and sights to take in. It was indeed a magical place.

This was very cool because you had the freedom to roam and listen to the history of Gabo's experience in Cartagena. I would have preferred if they had an option of someone to show you around and explain it themselves or guide you where to be and let you listen and be there to answer any questions especially if you speak Spanish as well. It was nice though. I learned alot about Gabriel Garcia Marquez that I never knew and it did make me appreciate Cartagena more and view it in a different light and admiration.
