A fairy-tale city of romance, legends and sheer beauty, Cartagena of the Indies is an addictive place that can be hard to escape. This is the place to drop all sightseeing routines. Instead, just stroll through Cartagena's maze of cobbled alleys, where enormous balconies are shrouded in bougainvillea and massive churches cast their shadows across leafy plazas. In 1984 Cartagena's colonial walled city and fortress were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Take time out to walk through Cartagena's welcoming alleys and streets, relax at one of many open-air cafés, prime viewing spots to watch the parade of horse-drawn carriages, fashionable locals and mystified tourists. When the bustling city gets too much, you can always escape to the nearby islands. This vibrant city that should be on every traveler must-see list.
