Top 4 Cartagena Tours
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the port city of Cartagena sits on the Caribbean Coast. Cartagena was the first Spanish colony on the American mainland. This historic port city features Spanish era fortress walls and San Felipe castle, used as protection against pirates. Sit on the walls in the evening, and you’ll feel like an extra in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. There are a multitude of things to do in Cartagena and the walled city is compact enough to explore on foot. Walk past flowering balconies, pleasant plazas and visit historic convents and museums. Take a trip by boat to the Rosario Islands and relax on the beaches and swim in the Caribbean Sea. Cartagena travel has it all.
