San Pedro de Majagua

Cartagena itself does not have nice bathing spots at the sea. So it is recommendable go on day tours to the close islands, do island hopping or just stay for some nights on an island. I just wanted to flee from the tiny streets filled with tourists, the honking noises from the cabs and the…
