Cartegena, Columbia:
Fruit Market

By Marianne Schwab | Best Travel Deals Tips Blog

The most picturesque sites in the Caribbean beach city of Cartegena, Columbia, are not buildings or statues, but its colorful citizens. I snapped this photo of two fruit sellers dressed in vibrant colors and perfectly balancing bowls of fruit on their heads outside of a large market that totally caters to tourists. The day in Cartegena was part of a cruise ship shore excursion on a wonderful 10-day Western Caribbean cruise on board the MSC Poesia.

These fruit ladies are a common fixture in many areas of the city, especially in and around Cartagena's piazzas. These women will graciously pose for a photo with you, but expect to pay them a dollar or two for a "posing fee." They are business women, after all.

Book Your Trip

Booking travel online should be quick and easy…not to mention affordable and that's why I like Expedia. Did you know that you can save up to $525 when you book your flight and hotel together at Expedia.com? For the best deals, book 60 days or more before you travel because usually the further out you plan, the better the package rate.
