The City of Cartagena is as impressive today as it was when the Spanish Empire used it to funnel gold and emeralds from The New World. Its massive wall took 208 years to complete and is a reminder of when pirates and privateers prowled the Caribbean looking for gold-laden prizes. This vibrant and colorful City is also known for its rich culture dating back to Colonial times. Cartagena de Indias or "Corralito de Piedas" as the locals like to call it, was founded in the 15th Century and has grown to be an ultimate vacation Caribbean destination.

Cartagena's character is given by its beautiful plazas, fruit vendors and street skilled artisans that help its visitors to become instant photographers taking amazing photos of Cartagena Colombia. The entire Old City is a work of art, and therefore, in 1984 was deservedly included in the UNESCO list of Patrimonies of the World.

Near Cartagena de Indias you will find the clear blue waters of "Baru" and the "Rosario Islands"; two destinations we highly recommend you add to the visit.

This city has literally been an international travel destination for centuries. Today it brings a veritable who's who from all over the world including wealthy Colombian movers and shakers, Hollywood A-List celebrities, and the shooting stars of the global gastronomy scene. But Cartagena isn't just for the elite. More and more travelers are falling in love with this Caribbean escape with every week-long vacation or month-long holiday. The problem is not figuring out why to visit Cartagena it's what to see and do in Cartagena while you're here.

We have put together things to do and see in Cartagena compiled by people in-the-know--people who were born here, people who fell in love with the city, people who wouldn't trade a week in Cartagena for any other Caribbean vacation!
