Local Area

Cartagena is a port city on the Caribbean coast of Colombia.  It is the undisputed queen of the Caribbean coast, a historic city of beautifully preserved beauty that lies within 13 km of impressive centuries-old colonial stone walls. The old town of Cartagena is a World Heritage Site by Unesco, a labyrinth of cobbled streets, balconies covered with bougainvillea and massive churches that project their shadows through leafy squares.

With a tropical climate, the city is also a popular beach destination. You can arrive by boat to Isla de Barú, with white sand beaches and palm trees, and the Rosario Islands, known for their coral reefs.

But the tourist attractions of Cartagena go beyond beaches and historic streets. The city has an excellent gastronomic offer. Framed by a beautiful bay, Cartagena de Indias is one of the most beautiful and best preserved cities in America, a treasure that becomes one of the most visited tourist destinations in Colombia.
