The city sits atop the Caribbean sea with great views for you to admire all the natural scenery. Besides all the history, Cartagena also boasts some of the greatest literary histories as well, with great authors like that of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and his famous novel “Love in the Time of Cholera.”
Enjoy the climate

After visiting the beaches and immersing yourself in the 16th-century history at the Old Town, you can finish your vacation by stepping into the mini-version of the Copacabana and heading to the Bocagrande. A strip of high-rises and boutique hotels, the shore is lined with chic beachfront cafes and lounges with the music of Café del Mar, cocktails and the sunset in the background.
