Enjoy an Evening at Café del Mar in Cartagena
There are numerous Cartagena Bars and Cafes located all around the city, but the best bar around is undoubtedly the famous Café del Mar. It is located in the old town part of Cartagena near the waterfront of Avenida Santander. Café del Mar is situated right on top of the historical city walls, and reveals a breathtaking view of the Caribbean. It is one of the most renowned places in Cartagena, and has hosted important events like Miss Columbia, the Cartagena Film Festival and the MTV Columbia awards.
The magnificent views to the Caribbean and to the old city, as well as the modern interior, are more than enough for creating a unique atmosphere in Café del Mar. This is the best place to enjoy a drink with the accompaniment of chill-out, house and lounge music, while watching the beautiful sunset. However, the bar has a negative side--and this is the service. It is very slow, and many (if not all) of the waiters do not speak English. This is a serious problem that stops the bar from becoming the number one bar in Cartagena.
Café del Mar serves some of the best cocktails in the city. Try their Mojito or Margarita, and you will see that you have never tasted anything like this before. In addition, you can order some food to complement the drinks. You can choose from seafood, Caribbean cuisine and veggie dishes. The food is not the absolute best, but still very tasty.
