    Top Descriptions

    Cartagena is easily the most popular location along the Colombian Caribbean coast, and it’s not too difficult to see why. With a good array of facilities, a consistent (although oppressive) climate, and a wonderful assortment of colonial treats to rummage through, Cartagena is deserving of its title as the jewel of the Caribbean – provided you stay in the old town. Wander out of the walled city and the situation declines rather quickly, both in interest and in safety. There might not be too much to do beyond wandering through pretty old colonial lanes, but that alone will certainly keep you busy for a few days. – Daniel
