I am planning a trip to Colombia, and thinking of doing Cartagena from 11-16 November. I looked online and it seems that there is a festival/beauty contest on those dates. How big is this event, and is it something worth doing or avoiding? I could do Medellin on those dates and do Cartegena after that.
Any feedback is appreciated.
It is the Miss Columbia contest which is a big event in Cartagena as well as all of Columbia. Its a particular big deal this year because the 2014 Miss Universe is Pauline Vega who is from Columbia. She was also Miss Columbia in 2013. Many Columbians feels that their women are the most beautiful in the year. Was this helpful?
