Best Places to Visit in Cartagena

Cartagena, a gem on Colombia's Caribbean coast, is a city where the past and present merge to create a vibrant tapestry of color, culture, and history. With its colonial architecture, cobblestone streets, and the warmth of its people, Cartagena invites travelers to explore its many wonders. And for those looking to dive deeper into this enchanting city, Happytripz offers excursions that promise to enrich your experience.

The Walled City of Cartagena

At the heart of Cartagena lies the Walled City, or Ciudad Amurallada, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Stroll through the maze of narrow lanes, and you'll find yourself enchanted by the well-preserved colonial buildings and lively plazas. Don't miss the chance to watch the sunset from the top of the centuries-old walls, a view that will stay with you long after you've returned home. For a guided tour that brings the history of these ramparts to life, consider joining a Happytripz excursion.

Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas

Another must-visit landmark is the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, a fortress that stands as a testament to Spanish colonial military engineering. Climb to the top for a panoramic view of the city, and explore the network of tunnels within. The stories of battles and sieges are bound to captivate history buffs and casual visitors alike.

Getsemaní Neighborhood

For a taste of local life, head to the vibrant neighborhood of Getsemaní. Once a hub for the working class and artists, it's now a cultural hotspot where street art, music, and dance come alive. At night, the plazas fill with performers and food vendors, offering a feast for the senses. Happytripz can guide you through the colorful streets, ensuring you experience the best of Getsemaní's nightlife.

Caribbean Beaches

No visit to Cartagena is complete without a day spent on its idyllic beaches. Playa Blanca, on the nearby Barú Island, is a slice of paradise with its white sands and crystal-clear waters. For a hassle-free trip to this beach haven, join a Happytripz tour that includes transportation and a beachside lunch.
