City of Heroes
The site of the continent's first Spanish colony, Cartagena retains much of its colonial flavor thanks to a World Heritage-listed old town, encircled by old walls and protected by imposing fortresses. While most Cartagena tours either start or end in the history-infused old town, the city's outer districts reveal a different side of this modern coastal city. Away from its colonial core, Cartagena remains a working-class town with a busy port and a modern skyline. Long overlooked by foreign travelers, Cartagena holidays draw a growing number of visitors interested in discovering an urban center where colonial architecture stands shoulder to shoulder with modern tourist attractions. Plan your holiday in Cartagena and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Colombia trip itinerary planner.
