Cartagena was one of the first cities founded by the early Spaniards in their search and conquest of South America. First beginning to settle in 1533, this strategic location called for a fortress, and the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas was started in 1639. Difficult to believe but, it was not completed for 150 more years. The fortress walls surrounded what is now known as the Ciudad Murallada, or the walled old town, where beautiful churches, homes, business and plazas share their colonial heritage.
Cartagena over the years has changed from a defensive position to Colombia's most popular seaside destination. Within these walls and in the newer areas of Bocagrande and El Laguito, resort hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs cater to the business or leisure visitor.
Cartagena is a must see travel location for both backpackers and vacationers going to Colombia. Accommodations are abundant and range anywhere from cheap hostels to luxury beachfront hotels.
Make sure you venture out and see the different neighborhoods of this large port city. There is so much history to be seen from yesteryear to the living history of today. This is a transforming city, holding tight to a rich history, culture, and heritage.
There are beaches to visit in Cartagena, but the water isn’t clean as your used to in a more developed country. You do have to consider it’s a port city. As you enjoy the boat ride out to the Islands of Rosario towards Playa Blanca, you will see the water clarity change before you eyes.
