Colombia: Cartagena

Visit Us

Romantic and evocative Cartagena de Indias is without doubt one of the most captivating cities on the continent. The colonial heart of this Caribbean treasure, embraced by 17m. thick walls, oozes a swashbuckling history. Since its founding at the time of the Spanish Empire the city was subsequently attacked by waves of pirates and national fleets; the forts and cannons erected to protect it are still in place. Nowadays it is a cultured city, where gentle harmonies filter through the walls of music academies, language schools attract international students, artists flock to capture the sensual delights of flower-decked balconies and boutique hotels, salsa bars and literary cafés spill out onto the streets.

Our insider tips for Cartagena

Hannah

Hannah Donaldson

A sunset ride through the cobbled streets of the old city in a horse and carriage. It may seem a bit cheesy, but in a city which so readily evokes the past; it’s a great way to indulge in a little fantasy…

Feeling the sun-sparkling spray on your face on a (sometimes bumpy) speedboat ride out to the Rosario Islands, where whispering coconut palms genuflect to classic white coral sands.
