Overview

Cartagena de Indias is one of the most visited cities in the Americas: tourists flock to the ‘Jewel of the Indies’ to enjoy Cartagena’s Caribbean climate, beautiful historic Walled City, unique blends of cultures and nearby beaches. It’s a magical city that any lover of travel should try to visit at least once in their lifetime. The port town was used by the Spanish to send riches back to Europe, and was routinely targeted by pirates. Until of course, they built the walls.
