    This has undoubtedly been the best trip we had during our stay in Cartagena. The Plan was full of many stories about the life of Gabriel García Márquez. The places visited were relevant points of his life that inspired many of his works, I was fascinated by everything I lived. If you are a lover of Gabo's works, I recommend it.
