Cartagena, the capital of the Bolívar department, has a raw beauty and historical significance. Cartagena de Indias is the undisputed queen of the Caribbean coast, a fairytale city of romance, legends and superbly preserved beauty lying within an impressive 13km of centuries-old colonial stonewalls.

Cartagena’s old town is a Unesco World Heritage Site – a maze of cobbled alleys, balconies covered in bougainvillea, and massive churches casting their shadows across plazas. Without a doubt, Cartagena’s old city is its principal attraction, particularly the inner walled town consisting of the historical districts of El Centro and San Diego. Both sections of the old town are packed with perfectly preserved colonial churches, monasteries, plazas, palaces and mansions with balconies and shady patios. Stroll through the old town day and night. Strolling the streets here is to step into the pages of a novel by Gabriel García Márquez. Soak up the sensual atmosphere, pausing to ward off the brutal heat and humidity in one of the city’s many open-air cafes. This is a living, working town that just happens to look a lot like it did centuries ago.

Cartagena is also a major port and the gateway to offshore destinations like the northern section of Parque Nacional Natural (PNN) Corales del Rosario y San Bernardo and sleepy down-shore towns like Mompox.
