Cartagena Tours and Day Trips. Explore the city like a local on a city tours, boat tours, skip the line at major attractions

Cartagena is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Nestled in a bay on the Caribbean coast, Cartagena became the principal South American trading port in the 18th century, and is now internationally renowned – for the historical centre that won the city UNESCO World Heritage status, and for the incredible tranquility and natural paradises of the nearby Rosario Islands. 

As one of the safest cities in the country, it’s no wonder Cartagena has become a popular stop on any Colombia tour. We know the city like the back of our hands and our expert team can help you find the best Cartagena day trips and activities. 

Adventure Awaits

If you do one thing in Cartagena, take a boat tour – there’s an option for everyone! Go for a sunset catamaran around the bay, take a trip to a party island, go snorkeling in hidden bays get up close to nature on a tour of the mangroves, or find a beach for whatever vibe you crave.  

Make sure to take some time to explore on land too. The city is perfect to explore by bike, if you want to see the neighbourhoods around the bay, then walk the walls at sunset.  For the most unusual experience we know, take a bath in the mud volcano, El Totumo! Bask in the healing mud, have your photo taken, and wash yourself off in the nearby Manzanillo del Mar Lake.
