Trip Planner: South America / Colombia / Bolivar Department / Cartagena District / Cartagena / Plaza Santo Domingo

You can wander the square's many stalls selling local arts, crafts, and souvenirs, or grab something to eat at the numerous outdoor restaurant tables. Afterwards, kick back with a coffee or a drink and enjoy the plaza's bustling activity.
