Cartagena Colombia - A Day in the Life

A friend, and one of our aspiring expats, was originally considering relocating to Cartagena before we sort of convinced him to consider Costa Rica.

Actually, he didn't really need much convincing.  When we started our escape project, he was set on moving to Colombia. He was, however, still a part of our weekly discussion group and so listened to the retirement research about Costa Rica.  On his last visit to Cartagena he decided that he did not want to live there and felt that retirement living conditions would be better in Costa Rica.

So, that's all it took!

"A Day in the Life" are photos taken on his last visit to Cartagena.

Cartagena de Indias ("Cartagena of the Indies"), is a city on the northern coast of Colombia in the Caribbean Coast Region and capital of the BolĂ­var Department. The port city had a population of 892,545 as of the 2005 census.

It is the fifth-largest city in Colombia and the second largest in the region, after Barranquilla. The Cartagena urban area is also the fifth-largest urban area in the country.

Economic activities include maritime and petrochemicals industry, as well as tourism.
