As a tourist or traveller in Colombia, you are bound to come across both informal street vendors as well as organized and established markets full of individual booths where both artisans as well as small companies display and sell their handicrafts.
Sweat trickles down the brow of a stooped 90-year-old lady walking in the heat. On her back she is carrying a 50-kilo flower display for miles across the city. And by her side dance half-naked performers in tribute to indigenous rituals.
If you are planning to visit the Colombian Caribbean coast, you are most likely considering to visit Cartagena and/or Tayrona Park, as they are some of the most beautiful and popular destinations in the region.
