Travel Tips from people who've been to Cartagena
uuuh, cartagena! i got stuck there for 2 week during a boat transfer. weather got bad. cartagena is cool to be visited  4 couple of days, but not 2 week while raining.
cartegena was founded by asurbanipal, the son of the famous cartagan warior hanibal who came to the gates of rome with elephants. people from the original city of cartaga in north africa fled from a hord of visigots that have destroyed the ancient city cartaga. so they sailed acros the sea and landed in spain. there are a lot of ruins and sights today across the city. the town itself is 2/3 closed due to the fact it is a spanish marine base. so u have ruins and u-boats. a lot of arabs live in the town so it is fun to explore other cultures.
spanish people in general r very friendly and speak bad english.
stoping in cartagena is not a must, but u will mako no mistake if u spend a day or 2 here

Cartagena es una ciudad situada en el sureste español, con más de tres mil años de historia. Por sus calles han paseado griegos, carthagineses, romanos... Ha sido cantón y una de las últimas ciudades en resistir durante la Guerra Civil Española. Posee un patrimonio histórico impresionante, es imprescindible visitar el Museo y Teatro romano, pasear por la bahía en barco o descubrir las baterías de costa que se encuentran abandonadas a su alrededor.

what a blast, 24h trip on train to get there..hell was that loooong.. while my fam were hanging in the bed, i was in the bar all time, cause i couldn't get any sleep... was to exciting and couldn't await to finally arrive.. but cartagena, small town, kind of dirty and absolutely no touristic place.. the beach was nice, not a dream and not too busy but full of home families and kids..everyone knows each other..interesting.
