Stay Healthy in CartagenaHow to Stay Healthy in Cartagena

It goes without saying that Colombians like a little junk in their trunk. So it should come as no  surprise that their cuisine somehow manages to make wholesome fresh fruit and vegetables into an oily, sugary paradise - or nightmare, if you are reading this right now in frustrated desperation.

It's sure hard to clock up the miles on your running app in a tropical climae that practically forces you to hail down a cab.

Feeling sluggish is not the ticket to enjoying Cartagena to the max. So if the idea of another deep-fried empanada sends you running for the hills, get stuck into a guilt-free guide that won't add to your waistline.

If you need any help counting your calories contact our City Concierge for some top tips to stay in shape in the city.

Sir Mix-a-Lot won't be happy, but your gut will be.
