An important port on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, Cartagena’s year round warm weather makes it popular beach destination. A Spanish colonial city, part of Cartagena is still surrounded by its original stone fortification wall. Further evidence of Spanish occupation can be seen at Castillo San Felipe de Barajas, a fort built on a hill overlooking the city and the ocean, meant to help protect Cartagena and the goods in its port from pirates. Las Bovedas, a former prison built in the 18th century, is today home to a lively market, with stalls selling craft items and souvenirs. The Plaza Santo Domingo features a variety of restaurants, bars and shops and is a popular destination for visitors.
Flights to Cartagena are available via Rafael Nunez International Airport (CTG).
