Founded in 1533, Cartagena is a perfectly preserved colonial destination. The Old Town of Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage site featuring colonial architecture, historical landmarks and 13km rugged stone walls. Step into a world of history and romance in this city filled with cobbled streets, colorful balconies and ancient churches in plazas lined with open-air cafes. Leave the sightseeing trips behind and simply stroll through the streets, soaking up the mix of Colombian and Caribbean culture all around you, from Santo Domingo Church to the Museum of Modern Art.
Visit the oldest fortress in the New World - Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas. Explore the unique gold museum and the Inquisition Palace in the heart of Cartagena. Or relax in traditional Colombian cafes with strong drinks and live salsa dancing as ocean breezes cool down balmy evenings. Jump back into the 21st century in Bocagrande on the island's southern peninsula; the area is brimming with trendy shops, bars, restaurants and art galleries.
With daily average temperatures of around 80°F and the tranquil Caribbean Sea on all sides, there's more than just sightseeing, shopping and nightlife on offer in Cartagena; try some sunbathing and water sports along the coast.
