Eat:

Cartagena for amazing ceviche instead

1. La Cevicheria

Order a Small langostino, Ceviche pescado peruano, tortastadas with guacamole.

2. El Gobernador by Rausch

Amazing. The costa negra (Colombian-style black beef) with plantains and coconut rice was one of my favorite things I’ve ever had.

The costa negra!

3. Pasteleria Milo

For desserts and wifi.

4. Demente in Getsemani

…if you’re already in that neighborhood.
