Cartagena to Rincon Del Mar

Riding a Royal Enfield Classic 350 is an experience that every motorcycle enthusiast must have. This iconic motorcycle brand is known for its classic designs and powerful performance, making it the perfect choice for a long-distance road trip. In this blog post, I want to share my experience of riding a Royal Enfield Classic 350 from Cartagena to Rincon del Mar, stopping off to enjoy roadside markets and restaurants along the way.

The journey started in the vibrant city of Cartagena, located on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Cartagena is a beautiful city that has preserved its colonial architecture and culture. It was the perfect starting point for our road trip, as we could explore the city before hitting the road. We spent a couple of days in Cartagena, enjoying the beaches, the colorful streets, and the delicious food.

On the day of the road trip, we woke up early to get our Royal Enfield Classic 350s.

The Classic 350 is a beautiful motorcycle that combines vintage styling with modern technology. It has a 346cc engine that produces 20 horsepower, which is more than enough for cruising on the highway. The Classic 350 is also very comfortable to ride, with a relaxed seating position and a plush seat.

Our first stop was at a roadside market that we had spotted on our way out of the city. The market was bustling with activity, with vendors selling everything from fresh fruit to handmade crafts. We parked our motorcycles and started exploring the market. We tasted some of the local fruits, like mango and pineapple, and bought some souvenirs to take back home. The market was a great introduction to the local culture, and we felt energized and excited to continue our journey.

The road to Rincon del Mar was a mix of highways and small country roads. The highways were smooth and fast, while the country roads were bumpy and slow. But the Classic 350 handled everything with ease, and we enjoyed the ride immensely. We stopped at a few restaurants along the way, trying out the local cuisine. The seafood was especially delicious, with fresh fish and shrimp cooked to perfection.

As we got closer to Rincon del Mar, the scenery changed dramatically. We left behind the hustle and bustle of the city and entered a peaceful, rural landscape. We saw cows grazing in the fields, palm trees swaying in the breeze, and small villages with colorful houses. It was a refreshing change of pace, and we felt like we were truly experiencing the local way of life.

When we arrived in Rincon del Mar, we were greeted by a beautiful beach with turquoise waters and white sand. Rincon del Mar is a small fishing village that has managed to preserve its natural beauty and charm. We parked our motorcycles and went for a swim, enjoying the refreshing water and the warm sun. We also had lunch at a local restaurant, where we tried some of the best ceviche we had ever tasted.

The ride back to Cartagena was just as enjoyable, as we took our time and explored some of the smaller roads we had missed on the way there. We stopped at another roadside market, where we bought some more souvenirs and tried some local sweets. The sun was setting as we entered the city, and we felt a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.

Riding a Royal Enfield Classic 350 from Cartagena to Rincon del Mar was an unforgettable experience. We had the opportunity to explore the local culture, try out delicious food, and enjoy some of the most beautiful landscapes Colombia has to offer. The Classic 350 was the perfect motorcycle for the trip, as it combined style, comfort, and performance. If you ever get the chance to ride a Royal Enfield Classic 350, I highly recommend it.

A couple photos of us getting our Motos washed after the long ride. The cost for the full detail was about 20mil which comes out to be about $5 USD for both bikes. Plus we bought every cold cokes to enjoy for all their hard work.
