Cartagena de Indias is a city on the shores of the Caribbean Sea founded in 1533. Its conserved colonial and republican architecture contributed to the fact that in 1984 Cartagena was declared Historical Patrimony of Humanity by UNESCO.
Walking through the cobblestone streets of Cartagena is like travelling back in time. Built by African and indigenous slaves, its walls, balconies, colorful houses and narrow stone roads recreate chapters of colonization in America. Faced with this landscape, on the other side of the city, modern Cartagena imposes itself framed by a beautiful bay of crystalline water.
Cartagena's tourist attractions go beyond beaches and historic streets. The city offers an exquisite and varied gastronomic proposal, where the mixture of European, African and indigenous flavors stand out. Furthermore, Cartagena annually hosts cultural events such as film and music festivals. You can also enjoy the lively nightlife to the beat of champeta, salsa and other Latin American rhythms.
