Welcome to Cartagena

This oceanside town is more than just a beach destination

Strategically located between two rivers, the Magdalena and the Sinú, Cartagena was once the main port for Spanish trade beginning in the mid-16th century. These days, it’s a popular tourist destination, especially for history lovers — simply speaking of Cartagena brings to mind the entirety of Colombia’s colonial history. Our day tours in Cartagena, like the Cartagena Walking Tour or the Cartagena City Tour, will bring you to all of the main points of interest within and outside the city and give you the chance to discover the history of Colombia. Or, get out into the Caribbean and enjoy a beach day on our Shared Rosario Islands Tour. Our half-day and full-day tours are completely private (except for 3 shared tours) and have flexible itineraries, so you can see what you came to see!

Want to know more about Cartagena?

We’ve got you covered

As the main port of the Indies and a Spanish colony, Cartagena was targeted by both pirates and the British Crown. However, when Great Britain failed to besiege Cartagena, Spain gained strength as a European superpower. Cartagena was also used as a main slave port for the Americas, introducing a great amount of African influence to the city’s culture. Its main attractions include the Castle of San Felipe de Barajas, Palace of the Inquisition, Rosario Islands, Las Bóvedas (The Vaults), and the Church of San Pedro Claver, all of which we visit on our day tours. Let this magical city take you back in time to show you the Cartagena of yore.
