Cartagena Tours

A tour of Cartagena is necessary when on a trip to Colombia. This UNESCO World Heritage Site beautifully sits on the Caribbean Coast and offers travelers a wide range of activities. One of the best things to do in Cartagena is to explore the first Spanish colony on the American continent. Visit its historic old town from the Spanish colonial era surrounded by walls. The walled city is compact enough to explore on foot. Walk past flowering balconies, pleasant plazas, and visit historic convents and museums. After a city tour of Cartagena, relax on beautiful white-sand beaches and swim in the Caribbean’s crystal waters. Take a trip by boat to the Rosario Islands and relax on some of the best beaches in Colombia. You can also combine Cartagena Colombia tours with a trip to Colombia’s coffee country.

Cartagena Travel FAQ’s

Thinking about a Cartagena trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests.

Is Cartagena safe?

Absolutely, Cartagena travel is safe. The historic center of Cartagena is safe for tourists and this is a very popular destination on any tour of Colombia. In common with many cities, it is best not to carry around valuables or expensive jewellery though. The same applies to Cartagena’s beaches.

How far are the Rosario Islands from Cartagena?

It takes about 45 minutes to an hour to get from Cartagena to the Rosario Island in a speedboat. It is easy to visit the islands on a day trip, or to stay overnight.

Are there beaches in Cartagena?

Yes there are, though the walled city is the most famous attraction rather than the beaches. The area around Bocagrande has the city’s most well known beaches and there are some just to the north of the city too. Also, it is possible to take boat trips to the Rosario Islands.
