With so much to see, do and explore in this vibrant country, walking holidays in Columbia never disappoint. On the country’s Caribbean coast sits the beautiful city of Cartagena. During your time here, you’ll learn all about the intriguing history of this picturesque city, before enjoying local cuisine inspired by African, European and Indigenous flavours. You can experience all of this and more as part of The Caribbean & Latin America holiday, which combines Colombia walking with visits to several desirable destinations in this region.
As one of the best-preserved colonial cities in the Americas, Cartegena has plenty of incredible architecture, as well as a thriving food scene to keep you busy for days on end, from the Old Town to the New Town and the colonial area. Take a walk around the 17th-century Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, to gaze at the large walls and grand entrance of this epic stone fortress.
During your guided holiday, our itinerary takes you to visit the Ciudad Vieja, the Church of San Pedro Claver and the handicraft zone of Las Bóvedas. We will also visit the La Popa Monastery, which offers 360o degree views over the city and a stunning view of the Caribbean sea. In between sightseeing, you can enjoy wandering around the narrow streets of the Old Town, admiring the lush plant life hanging from the colourful colonial houses. Discover more about this historical city on our Islands In The Caribbean holiday.
