Two Location Break: Old City and Rosario Islands

Looking to fully experience the magic of Cartagena? How about diving into the fascinating blend of the Old Spanish colonial world, with its wealth of amazing restaurants in the enchanting Old City, and the sun-soaked serenity of the Rosario Islands?

The Historic Charm of Old City, Cartagena

The Old City of Cartagena is a treasure trove of Spanish colonial history, architectural marvels, and vibrant cultural experiences. Wandering through its cobbled streets, you’ll discover impressive fortifications, colorful buildings, and charming plazas, each telling tales of the city’s rich past. This area is not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site but also a food lover’s paradise, offering a plethora of dining options ranging from traditional eateries to high-end restaurants, each serving delectable culinary creations.

The Sun-Soaked Serenity of Rosario Islands

Just an hour boat ride away from Cartagena, the Rosario Islands await with their crystal-clear waters, abundant sunshine, and tranquil beaches. This tropical paradise is renowned for its stunning coral reefs, diverse marine life, and pristine sandy beaches, offering an idyllic escape from the bustling city life. With abundant sunshine almost throughout the year, it’s a haven for sun worshippers and beach lovers alike.

Combine the Historic and the Tranquil

A balanced blend of city exploration and island relaxation can offer the most enriching experience. A good rule of thumb, especially if you are pressed for time, is to spend two-thirds of your time immersing in the historical wonders of the Old City and one-third rejuvenating in the serene Rosario Islands.
