Overview
This tour is part of our H.E.A.R.T. Experiences at Impulse Travel - Cartagena has much more to offer besides San Felipe Castle, Rosario Islands, and Torre del Reloj. Bazurto Market is definitively one of Cartagena’s hidden gems; not a very common touristic destination, and much more than a common fruit & vegetable Colombian Market. This place has everything you could ever need; from vegetables, fish, meat, fruit, clothing, and even an Art market. This tour is for adventurous souls that want to take a peek into the lives of the real inhabitants of Cartagena.

  • Cartagena
    Upon your arrival, you will notice an enormous economy that grows close to the market, in this way boundaries are not clear because Bazurto goes beyond the limits of a normal farmers' market. Accordingly, your first stop will not be for legumes but at a Pikó Builder's place. A Pikó is the Sound System of a music genre called Champeta, that transforms African 70's Highlife music into the contemporary Caribbean party music. At this stop, you will enjoy a beer while you learn about Champeta and its four different subgenres straight from an expert who will give you a proper introduction with his Pikó and his enormous CD collection. After choosing your favorite subgenre and CD souvenir, you will move on to try local fruits and juices. Some will be totally unknown for you so you will be served a small bite of each fruit to try and a juice made out of your preferred one.
  • Mercado Bazurto
    Continuing through commercial passages you will see clothes, backpacks, and pretty much anything you can imagine. You will stop at a Calligraphy/Lettering workshop where you will meet "El Runner" a local graphic artist and expert recognized for making Champeta concert flyers, business signs, and pretty much anything related to letters and vibrant colors. He will show you how he makes his letters while he makes a custom sign for the group. You will then move on to stop at a Herbsman's stand where you will get to see a wide range of magical potions used for any problem or desire. You will learn about and see some interesting examples before choosing one to try yourself! Finally, you will have your lunch at the plaza and will try some of the local tasty recipes served.
