Quick Facts

Cartagena, Columbia is known as one of the most romantic and impressive towns in the western hemisphere. It is the Venice of Columbia and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a large Caribbean beach resort city on the northern coast of Columbia and not only has great beaches but also plenty of colonial history and charm.

Getting There & Other Transportation

Cartagena’s airport, Rafael Núñez Airport is located a mere 3 km outside of historic Old Town. After your flight arrives at the airport, your best bet is to take a taxi, however a less expensive route is by bus.

The best way to explore the contrasting modern and old parts of the city is by foot. If you plan to take a taxi, you can hail one down from the curbside. Be sure to ask how much the ride will cost before entering the taxi.
