A trip to Old Cartagena is like stepping back in time. The Old city is vibrant, colorful and alive with many unique artisan shops. Water fountains, open air plazas and horse drawn carriages all add to its old world ambiance. The weather can be hot and muggy with regular 90% humidity - so dress appropriately and avoid the mid-day sun. Taxi's are bountiful and dirt cheap. The city has come along way in regards to improved security and tourist services. English is limited, as most tourists tend to be from else where in South America. Day trips to the white sands and turquoise waters of the Rosario Islands are also available.
Getting There: Direct flights in the winter months connect major North American cities with the Rafael Núñez International Airport. Connecting flights within Colombia via Bogota and Medellin are also possible.
