The city of Cartagena de Indias, the fifth largest in Colombia, feels like it belongs to a different era. Once an important port on the silver and gold trade route, Cartagena was extremely wealthy and well fortified, and has the architecture to show for it. This historic legacy is the reason why, today, it's a UNESCO world heritage site, and why it's so popular with visitors.
The city undoubtedly has a fairytale quality to it, boasting an atmospheric, walled old town of cobbled streets, and the best places to stay in Cartagena offer visitors a fantastic glimpse into this historic Spanish settlement. For example in the old middle class district of San Diego you'll find many of Cartagena's most beautiful colonial townhouses, many of which have been converted into excellent hotels.These charming boutiques may not always have a lot of guest rooms, but the delight of staying in this area is well worth your seeking them out. We have listed the best of them below.
While it feels like an exotic destination, Cartagena is also a great place to simply chill. One of the best things to do here to get a feel for the place and its inhabitants is to stroll the sea wall, and follow up with some mojitos and indulge in some people watching in one of the many bars and cafes that line the port. If you have kids in tow, and for a different experience, visit Oceanario with marine life, including turtles and sharks, on show in the beautiful waters - it's a great excursion for visitors of all ages.
