Cartagena de Indias offers a fascinating mix of attractions—Spanish colonial architecture, beautiful beaches, the idyllic Islas del Rosario and enchanting evenings spent in picturesque plazas.
Founded in 1533, Cartagena de Indias is considered a UNESCO World Heritage site because of its historically rich and impressive civil, religious and military architecture, built by the Spanish during the 15th and 16th centuries and considered the most significant of its kind in America. This is Cartagena; a beautiful, friendly and welcoming city. A city that never forgets its past full of viceroys, pirates, marquis, captains, gold and slave traders, noble women and witches, inquisitors and heretics…and yet is proud to show its splendor to the world. Thanks to a prime location, it’s the most desirable destination in the Caribbean, with quiet beaches, all-inclusive hotels and all the basic services you need. The city is the perfect blend of architecture, nature and enchanting people.
