Step back in time in Cartagena amidst the scenic northern coast of Colombia.

Stroll down narrow cobblestone streets of this seaport town and explore the famous walled colonial city, brimming with cafés, restaurants and shops. Wander the Bocagrande, the picturesque avenue bordering the beach, or delight in a visit to the 16th-century Cathedral with its majestic exterior. Tour Cartagena's oldest church, Iglesia de Santo Domingo, or behold the fascinating exhibits in the Palacio de la Inquisicíon. Stand in the shadows of the 17th-century Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, an ancient hillside fortress built to protect the city against pirates, or revel in the spectacular seaside views from the Convento de la Popa, a 400-year old monastery.

Bocagrande and El Laguito, on the peninsula facing the Caribbean Sea, are home to a plethora of upscale hotels, trendy restaurants and fine boutiques.
Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Cartagena is the largest seaport and most popular resort town in Colombia.
Beneath the famous Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas is a series of tunnels created to carry supplies that were also to be used as a means of escape had the fort been overtaken by pirates. It never was.
Cartagena is located on Colombia's northern coast along the Caribbean Sea.
Cartagena was founded in 1533.
