Welcome to sultry Cartagena

Once the richest city in the Americas, Cartagena's gilded past can still be read in its ornate landmarks. Little wonder that it is today a UNESCO World Heritage city, resplendent with Spanish colonial architecture that will have you reaching for your camera at every opportunity. Sitting on Colombia's Caribbean coast, Cartagena is also famed for its association with the legendary novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez. With serene white sand beaches, an atmospheric old town bedecked by cobbled streets and thick city walls, and colorful local markets – not to mention restaurant tables spilling onto beautiful squares, and the sounds of Latin music around every corner – Cartagena is a city ripe for discovery.

Things to do

Museums and marine life

Cartagena abounds with historic sites. The Palacio de la Inquisition offers a glimpse into some of Cartagena's darkest chapters of history, while the Museo del Oro Zenu offers up some of its most glittering treasures. Don't miss a trip to Castillo de San Felipe, a fortress dating back to the 17th century that provides some stunning views over the city and the sea. If you're staying at your Cartagena vacation rental with kids, you should make a beeline for the aquarium on the island of San Martin de Pajarales, where you can come face to face with majestic marine life, including dolphins and turtles.

Activities

Wander Cartagena's old town

From your Cartagena vacation rental, the best way to get your bearings is on a trolley bus tour, but exploring the districts of the old, walled city can be easily and pleasurably done on foot. A considerable amount of gentrification has happened in recent years, with luxury hotels, upscale restaurants, bodegas, and bars flourishing in the area. Head to Getsemani to enjoy authentic nightlife, with Latin rhythms, coffeeshops, bars, and street food to be found around Trinidad Square. Or, book an excursion to the Islas de Rosario archipelago for a day trip to laze on its beautiful beaches.

Weather

Soaking up the climate in Cartagena

Anyone familiar with the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez will know of Caragena's characteristic steamy climate. Summers here are warm and wet, with the driest season being the early months of the year. The siesta is welcome in this sultry town – make the most of the museums in the morning, relax in the early afternoon, then venture out from your Cartagena vacation rental to enjoy the shops, bars, and restaurants late into the evening.

Natural features

Hit the beach in Cartagena

Cartagena's Bocagrande beachfront is lined with bars and cafes where you can enjoy an oceanfront coffee in stylish surroundings. Or, for a more relaxed beach experience, the nearby Rosario islands have sparkling, sandy coves, and clear turquoise waters perfect for learning to snorkel or scuba, and are easily reached by boat. For a trip with a difference, outside town on the road to Barranquila, you'll find the Volcan del Totumo, Columbia's smallest volcano. Here, you can enjoy a mud bath in its crater before washing off in the nearby lagoon.
