Cartagena as single white man

To whom it may concern:


Would you recommend traveling to Cartagena as single white man?


I understand there are many street hustlers. But is there a danger of violence.


Thank You,
Tim M

Cartagena is the safest city in Colombia.

Would you recommend traveling to Cartagena as single white man?

Cartagena has some of the most sincere women in the world. very beautiful. If you looking to meet nice girls then go
with Foreign Affair ( http://www.loveme.com/ ) they have a fantastic reputation for getting guys marriage in Cartagena.

Note if you are just looking to have fun, do not stay in a hotel. They do not let guest in unless you pay $50.
Hotel Carbi is the worst. All inclusive hotels will not let any guests in at all. If you stay in an apartment make sure to ask if guest can visit.
We recommend http://www.CartagenaApartments.net

Cartagena is the safest city in Colombia.
Compare crime around the world see: http://www.cartagenatravelguide.com/top_50_contries_for_total_crimes.shtml


There are many street hustlers, but most of them just try and hook you up with a scamming prostitutes.
They introduces what they call nice girls over and over to each guy the can, but they are really scamming prostitutes.
They also run a scam for translation and English lessons. They will get you to use them for translation then you are paying dinner drinks cab fare and more.
They offer you to teach English lessons to the girl you met, but the split the money with the women, and they have dozens of men paying for English lesson for he same girl
As long as you just tell them you don't need anything you will be fine.

cartagena

listen, Cartagena is like any other Caribean town, kind of funky,humid and run down. As a gringo you are a natura taget for hustlers, take it in good humour and dont be fazed , you will be fine.People are fdreindly and relaxed and the hustling is half-hearted at best, if you want full-on hassle try North africa !!

but how do you avoid it

I understand that as a white guy you are going to stand out in a place like colombia and the husters are gooing to zero in on you. And you say to laugh it off and accept it or whaterver, but what happens when I get back to my hotel and my wallet and ID and money are gone? How do they hustle you?

Am I going to get pickpocketed, or is it like a scam / con type of thing?
