Rent a Segway in Cartagena and see the old city your way
Segways are a unique mode of personal transportation that responds to the rider’s position atop the two-wheeled machine. Invented by Dean Kamen in 2001, Segways allow riders to simply lean in the direction they want to go. The powerful battery drives the two wheels over relatively smooth terrain and even up steep inclines.
While many people think Segways are simply novelty items, they can be a wonderful way to make your Cartagena vacation even better. Imagine how fun it would be to roll around this historic city on one of these innovative transporters.
Why Segways Cartagena?
Cartagena, Colombia is hot—like tropical. With an average annual temperature in the mid to upper 80’s it’s the perfect place to take in the sun, relax with a cool beverage and a little ceviche on the patio, and enjoy the lazy Caribbean lifestyle. But if you want to get around the city—say on a sightseeing tour—that heat can make walking a chore. Segways take all the exertion out of seeing the city from the street. Just lean forward and you’re on your way.
A Segway allows you to experience the city first-hand without exhausting yourself in the heat. You see the brightly painted buildings, smell the spices and exotic scents of cooking food, and feel the warm sea breeze on your face as you glide effortlessly through historic Cartagena.
Segways Cartagena (one of the most trusted Segway rental agencies in the city) offers a variety of tour packages that make it easy to see many of the most beautiful and historic sites in the city. These tours are the perfect way to check multiple sightseeing locations off your list in a single day. Plus there are plenty of photo stops for those one-of-a-kind picture-perfect memories.
