Savor the distinctive flavors of Cartagena and learn more about its cultural and culinary customs when you join a local chef, on an intimate cooking experience. Your adventure begins in the old-city center. Your guide accompanies you to the local marketplace, where a cornucopia of seasonable vegetables, fruits and fabulous fresh fish greet you. At each stall, you'll taste local specialties, interact with the vendors and shop for ingredients needed for your cooking experience. Continue on to 'Posada Jamaica,' a neighborhood restaurant where you'll enjoy a refreshing sangria. Meet a local Chef, who will prepare and cook his specialty, paella, an authentic Spanish rice dish topped with vegetables and seafood. You'll be enthralled by this true master at work. After learning the secrets behind this special dish, enjoy it for lunch. Conclude with a café Asiático, an alcoholic coffee beverage. Return to port after this satisfying day.
