When we booked our excursion online for Cartagena, we knew nothing about the city.

Here are some additional photos of our visit to Cartagena. The picture above shows a panoramic scene of the city through a gun turret at the top of the fortress San Felipe.
Adjacent to the cruise ship port in Cartagena is a small zoo called the Port Oasis EcoPark. It features a lot of birds and a few animals as well, notably two giant anteaters. Admission is free. Here are some photos. This pair of giant anteaters seemed to like hanging out together.
