DMC Colombia Vaova Travel

The proud jewel of the Colombian Caribbean.

This UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, usually placed among the top tier of the most beautiful cities in South America by publications like World Travel Awards and Travel + Leisure, holds a cultural tradition with deep roots in its African heritage, which is palpable in the customs and history of the local people and contrasts with the colonial architecture built during the Spanish conquest. The paced lifestyle and delightful humid weather in Cartagena complement the splendor of its colonial structures and streets, always framed by the waters of the Caribbean sea, which influences the sources of income, gastronomy, and travel experiences of this destination. 

Cartagena, famous for being a platform for international cultural events, is not a city that offers a single must-see landmark. Instead, it has many sides of its culture to share, from monuments like the Walled City and the San Felipe Castle to natural havens like the Rosario Islands, mangroves, and coral reefs. There are also trendy areas like Getsemaní, which is the ideal spot to explore the local nightlife. And working-class districts like Bazurto and La Boquilla, significantly different from more tourist-friendly neighborhoods, provide the opportunity to truly immerse in this city’s cuisine, music, and other meaningful customs like a local.
