Caribbean Cartagena is the glittering jewel in Colombia´s crown. This old pirate city´s stories can be read right off the centuries-old walls. All this history doesn’t affect Cartagena´s legendary nightlife, which will keep the enchanted visitor up until the sunrise glints off the ocean before you.

 

Getting there

Several buses run between Bogotá and Cartagena (US$45, 20h) and more to Medellin (US$40, 13h). The local airport – Rafael Nunez airport – is 1.5km from the city and is easily reachable using public transport.

What to do in Cartagena

The first step on your itinerary should be to forget an itinerary. Cartagena is best experienced without an agenda – just a stroll around the historic centre will leave you more than satisfied. In the historic centre you should see the Torre del Reloj, one of the city’s most important landmarks, as well as the Iglesia de la Tercera Orden. Two museums of note are the Museo de Arte Moderno and the Art Gallery and Museum, which hosts a range of Latin American art.  It is possible to go scuba diving along Cartagena’s coast.

Cartagena Weather

October and November are the wettest months, and the temperature increases slightly in this time. Apart form these periods, the climate is typically around 28°C, with a refreshing breeze to cool you down.
