Tabaco y Ron [Cartagena]

Tabaco y Ron 38146 38- a, Cra. 8, Cartagena de Indias, Provincia de Cartagena, Bolívar, Colombia

From our first day in Cartagena, we explored each cobblestone street and square to familiarize ourselves with the port city. The heat from the tropical climate was intensified immensely by the humidity. Sightseeing included ducking into the colorful buildings, cathedrals and parks to escape the sun. During the siesta hours we found a quaint establishment called Tabaco y Ron, which became our daily hideaway to relax and unwind around 3:30 or 4:00ish. A few family members enjoyed cigars, as they have authentic Cuban Habano’s for the connoisseur. It was a cool place to escape from the sweltering heat while enjoying a light snack, a refreshing drink and listening to music. The artwork on the walls were painted by local artist. The portraits were most creative, there are two paintings I want to purchase upon my return trip in May 2023.

Travel stylishly,

The Colors of Cartagena

A 16th century port city filled to be experienced everywhere you turn. Cartagena is on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, and we walked the Old Walled Town each day with its European squares, cobblestone streets and colorful colonial buildings. The tropical climate and high humidity levels gave reason for us to stop sightseeing each day by late afternoon to relax and have cocktails at Tabaco y Ron. A quaint establishment to enjoy a light snack, cigars if you so choose and a cool drink.
