Cartagena, Colombia cruises

The walled old town of Cartagena, named after the Spanish city, is a World Heritage Site presenting quaint colonial buildings. Meanwhile the magnificent cathedral and palace dominate the city skyline.

Cartagena was under Spanish rule for 275 years until 1810. It now brims with colonial history, brightly painted facades, charming balconies and delightful plazas awash with flowers.

The port of Cartagena is situated approximately 3.5km from the old city. A beautiful aviary adds a unique dimension to this wonderful port. Home to a variety of exotic animals including flamingos, parrots, and red howler monkeys, the aviary makes quite the impression with new arrivals.
