Cartagena

Cartagena is one of Colombia’s biggest cities. Its location on the Atlantic coast of the country gives it plenty of beautiful beaches, but Cartagena is so much more. Its 16th century walled Old Town is a treasure trove of colonial architecture and cobblestone streets that date back to the Spanish rule of the area.

Santa Marta

Another city located on the Caribbean Sea is Santa Marta, which is known as the gateway to Tayrona Natural Park. This biodiverse area is home to a treasure trove of bird and animal species as well as a cool party scene that is centered on the Rodadero Beach area.
