A week in Cartagena, mostly as solo female

Jump to last reply

My husband is probably going to Cartagena to work for a week. He has asked if I want to go too. On the one hand I would love to, but I am nervous.

I would be on my own during the day while he is working. Would there be enough for me to do there? How safe will it be as a solo, middle aged, not very fit female?
What about taking my DSLR camera? I am a hobby photographer and would love to get some great photos there but not if it means I risk getting mugged or something.

If I do go with him and we were to add a few more days on to the trip where would you suggest going?

Any ideas, suggestions, help most welcome.
