Cartagena Travel Guide
  Travel tips

A storied history, diverse ecosystem and inviting culture are just part of the charm of Cartagena, an extraordinary city located in the Caribbean region of Colombia. Situated on the northern coast, this port town was founded in 1533, and once served a key role in the settlement and expansion of the Spanish empire. The ancient walls and extensive fortifications erected around the city throughout this time are still a major attraction to this day, and led to Cartagena's designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.
