The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Taste Cartagena’s New Culinary Wave


4. Insider’s Tip

Guanabana (left) and lulo (right) are among the exotic tropical fruits available in Cartagena.  

Freshly squeezed fruit juice is a popular treat all around Cartagena, but you won't experience it if you don’t speak Spanish or are unfamiliar with exotic fruits. On the street or in juice bars, ask for lulo (a citrus fruit with a flavor often described as a combination of lime and rhubarb) or guanabana (a spiky, intimidating fruit with a flavor of pineapple and strawberry on the inside). Another local favorite pick-me-up is a limonada de coco, a mix of lemonade and coconut.
