With most American workers having limited vacation time, I believe you have to take advantage of all opportunities given to travel. So of course taking a trip while on maternity leave was a must for me.

When deciding where to stay in Cartagena we were contemplating between Boca Grande and the Walled City. Let’s just say I was very happy we chose the later. Boca Grande was okay, just not my scene for this trip. There are tons of casinos but to me, there didn’t seem to be much else other than nightlife.
