VISIT A LOCAL MARKET

The more curious and adventurous have the option to visit the largest market of Cartagena, Bazurto, with the chef and pick-up the ingredients for the cooking class. The market is a vibrant and very exciting place, however it is also smelly, loud and crowded. It is an incredibly unique experience, but not recommended for the faint-hearted!

DURATION
2 hours before the cooking class, in order to pickup the freshest ingredients.
