Kick off your Colombia adventure with some Caribbean flavor in Cartagena de Indias, a charismatic seaside city that blends colonial and contemporary elements. Founded in 1533 and named after the port of Cartagena in Spain, it was a major center of early Spanish settlement in the Americas. Cartagena's walled Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its well-preserved collection of forts, squares, churches and cobblestone lanes. Explore colonial landmarks including a fortified castle, wander a grid of walkable streets lined with multicolored mansions and bustling plazas, and survey the city's best vistas from a hilltop convent. Experience Cartagena's colorful culture and architecture on a walk through the Getsemani neighborhood where vibrant street murals are helping to revitalize the area as a hip destination for the arts and salsa dancing. Cartagena’s urban intrigue is a perfect complement to your Colombia nature immersion, and an ideal introduction to this country’s surprising diversity.
