One of Latin America’s most photogenic cities..

Surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, Cartagena is a historic jewel of Colombia’s Caribbean coast. An hour’s boat ride will get you to the Rosario Islands. The local beaches in Cartagena are somewhat grimy and tourists often opt for a daytime excursion. Lay out on a sunbed overlooking the sea and snooze to the sound of the waves softly crashing on the beach. For a more active afternoon, try scuba diving and snorkeling offshore. Spend the rest of the day nibbling on fresh seafood and fruit.

Cartagena continues to be one of the safest cities in Colombia. The Caribbean coastal city of Cartagena in Colombia has a vibrant street scene – an addictive place that can be hard to escape. Tourists can enjoy walking around the old city admiring the colorful buildings and buying juice or fruit from the many street vendors. Enjoy one of the continent’s greatest cultural treasures.
