这一次,我们决定以不同的方式撰写同性恋旅行杂志。我们没有将所有的城市、地方、活动和亮点放在一篇长文章中,而是将我们在哥伦比亚访问的不同地方分别放在几份期刊上,从卡塔赫纳开始,然后是 Bogotá 还有Medellín。我们认为这对读者来说是一种更好的方法,可以获得关于你所需要的南美国家的更精确、更详细的同性恋旅行信息。 但是,让我们向您展示我们在 同性恋友好的哥伦比亚 通过一个 几个男人’s的眼睛。

Journal of our Gay-friendly trip to Cartagena

We landed in Cartagena Airport CTG after an 11-hour flight to Bogotá and a short 45-minutes connecting flight to Cartagena. It just had stopped raining, and the sun created a welcoming rainbow over the countryside. It took a while until we could get to our luggage although the passport control (no visa needed for Germany and Netherlands) went really smooth. It was hot and humid in Cartagena but with this special summer and vacation flair. During the short drive to our hotel about 15 minutes outside of Cartagena, we saw uncountable scooters crossing our car’s way. The first steps outside our hotel towards the Caribbean Sea said just one thing: Have a great vacation in 哥伦比亚!

Part 1: Cartagena – Luxurious beach days

For the first 3 days of our trip, we stayed at the Melia Cartagena Karmairi, luxurious hotel on the Caribbean coast. It lays behind the adults-only The Level but still very close to the beach. That makes it perfect for a romantic sunset in the pool. The Melia Cartagena Karmairi has a more modern feel and is located directly behind The Level. With our all-inclusive wristband and not much else around, it was the perfect place to get a little color while enjoying beach time and swimming in the warm Caribbean Sea.

The best way to get over our jet lag was to treat ourselves to a Spa day including a sauna, whirlpool, and a message. For the second evening, we got an invitation to get on board a Katamaran for a Saturday sunset tour around Cartagena’s harbor organized by María del Puerto. Together with a group of lovely locals, we danced into the night with Colombian, Caribbean, and Latin songs (check our Instagram Story highlight Colombia for the dance!).

Mud Volcano – Getting dirty in Colombia

Fitting to Halloween, we did a day trip to Santa Catalina north of Cartagena to visit the 托图莫泥火山 which is, according to local lore, the devil’s work. After a priest sprinkled holy water on the fire of the active volcano, the lava turned into mud. This muddy highlight not far from Cartagena turned into a tourist highlight attracting many LGBTQ+ travelers as well. Our day started with a bus trip to the volcano where we had to get naked. Dressed only in a speedo, we climbed up the slippery stairs to the top of the volcano and jumped into the gray and warm mud.

Part 2: Cartagena – Colonial City Center Life

We had a blast during our first days in 哥伦比亚! The Caribbean atmosphere, the great food with fresh fruits and local ingredients, the Mud volcano, the mangrove boat tour, and the colorful houses of the walled old town of Cartagena. And it’s not only the Caribbean but also a gay-friendly part of Colombia with a gay bar and many welcoming LGBTQ+ Colombians. We even had the chance to wave our rainbow flag over the city wall of Cartagena while riding a historical Spanish canon. After our beach days, we stayed in the heart of the old town in short walking distance to the city’s highlights. Delicious food, a rooftop pool with a view, dinner under the stars with live music – Welcome to Colombian paradise.

一起,我们可以达成一切!嗯,几乎所有的东西。但不幸的是,我们没有;在卡塔赫纳美丽的安戈斯托大街上,我没能抓住一把著名的雨伞。这座加勒比海城市就在海边,每个角落都美丽如画。在哥伦比亚的第一个目的地的最后三天,我们花了很多时间探索殖民地的老城 卡塔赫纳 它被历史悠久的城墙所包围。尤其是那些五颜六色的房子、非凡的街头艺术和可爱的哥伦比亚人创造了一种恰到好处的快乐感。

我们唯一想提及的是,我们真的不喜欢许多当地人,他们试图向我们出售水、纪念品,或者只是想在每个角落为我们唱歌跳舞,期望能赚到钱。达恩作为一个姜黄色胡须的男人,被选为多次;受害者;为年轻的,跳舞,唱歌的街头艺人。当然,如果你喜欢这种假日关注,你会发现自己在天堂。如果您没有;t、 你必须清楚地说出来,但你可以期待一些无害的咕哝在一起的西班牙语诅咒。

We were super excited to see all the birds we had read so much about. Our highlight birds: The Hairy Eagle (the largest and most powerful raptor found in the rainforest) and, of course, the super noisy Flamingos! Probably the loudest but definitely on the most beautiful creatures of the Aviario Nacional de Colombia. Don’t forget to bring sun lotion, mosquito repellent, and drinking water. It was super hot there but the birds are worth every drop of sweat. And maybe you are lucky enough to find some beautiful and special feathers along your way!

Don’t forget to bring: Water (only beverage allowed), sun lotion, sun hat, mosquito repellent


Gay Cartagena Travel: Just the beginning of our South America adventures

It has been a wonderful time in Cartagena, and we learned a lot about the surrounding nature. Since we got this question a lot: Yes, it really felt safe for us being in 哥伦比亚 as an openly gay couple traveling together. We are especially happy about our choice to travel with Sam from Out in Colombia who took care of everything including being our translator in a few situations. (No we don’t speak Spanish. Yet. But like so much, it’s on the list)! Please don’t hesitate to ask us any questions about your trip to Cartagena, and we will give our best to find the answer, or at least, to point you in the right direction. But now we are off to our second destination: Colombia’s capital city Bogotá!

Do you want to know and see more of us gay couple travel bloggers? Stay tuned on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook! See you around in Colombia, South America, and on one of our next gay pride trips around the world!
