Reasons to Visit


With its colourful Colonial heart, perfectly preserved city walls and endless blue skies, Cartagena is one of the crown jewels of the Caribbean and amongst the most beautiful cities of Latin America. Stroll the cobbled streets, past leafy squares and wooden balconies draped in exotic flowers, catching glimpses of picture-perfect courtyards bursting with lush foliage. Juicy tropical fruits and freshly brewed coffee tempt as you head towards the source of the soft Caribbean sea breeze and one of the city's many golden beaches. Sunset tinges the yellow buildings a deeper shade of golden amber as, throughout the city, bartenders begin to unpack their bars, soon to be filled by the sound of lively conversation and infectious salsa music long into the night.
