Zumba in Cartagena
Sports in Cartagena, Colombia - How to stay fit when you travel to Cartagena, Colombia
Staying in shape in Cartagena is essential and while there are myriad options, without question the MUST-DO holiday exercise experience is the latin-inspired fitness class that is ZUMBA.
Taking place in the thick of Getsemani from around
8pm every Sunday evening, the two hour-long class is just the
antidote for a toxic weekend.
The classes, led by the irresistibly energetic Ervelyne, incorporate a blend of easy-to-follow steps and contagious latin music, that provide a cardio workout that leaves you sweaty and exhilarated.
People of all abilities and fitness levels are welcome, with the only requirement being a willingness to have fun and a readiness to make a bit of a fool of yourself.
Wear comfortable clothing and footwear, bring water and pay what you can afford (a 2000COP donation would be great) for Ervelyne's high-energy attitude. After you've killed all those calories, you may even want to stay and enjoy a guilt-free pizza or a beer with the inquisitive locals.
Zumba Classes are also held 6pm Wednesday and Friday evenings in Ciudad Movil.
