Cartagena is a tourist place but I never felt it overcrowded. It is a safe place worth to visit. You can walk around the beach, the bay and the wall city during day and nighttime and you feel safe.

If you are eating in the old city (ciudad murallada), be prepared to pay a lot of money. There are some really good restaurants. If you want to go to a hole in the wall, eat the food that locals eat, go to Bocagrande. But be careful to not head into tourist traps. You should be paying around 5USD for a lunch that a local would eat.
