Cartagena, Colombia

If you tell someone you’re planning on visiting Cartagena, make sure you tell ‘em which — Colombia’s fifth-largest city found its namesake in a town in Spain that’s over 2,000 years old. If you find yourself in Cartagena, Jr. — only about 500 years young — you’ll find a vibrant Colombian city with a range of neighborhoods like a bustling downtown, the traditional Getsemaní, and even the waterfront Bocagrande… an entire cultural center on a walkable peninsula featuring beaches, shopping and nightlife galore.

  • Like many old towns, Cartagena has an “Old Town” section — a walled historic neighborhood you shouldn’t miss.
  • Built by the Spanish for protection from pirates, Castillo de San Felipe today opens its doors warmly to visitors from all over.
  • To go upscale, head downsouth. Bocagrande is home to shops, restaurants, shops and art galleries.
