Cartagena Tours And Experiences

Situated in a little bay in the Caribbean sea, Cartagena all started as a quiet fishing village before transforming into the principal South American trading port in the 18th century, and then becoming internationally known for its Cartagena tours that exhibits the city’s natural beauty.

The city itself is divided into three neighborhoods: San Pedro boasting cathedrals, Andalusian palaces, the San Diego merchants’ quarter, and Getsemani, commonly called the “popular” quarter. Dubbed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, Cartagena remains an eminent example of architecture in the New World. As one of the safest cities in the country, it’s no wonder why Cartagena is hugely-popular port of call for cruise ships from all around the world.

We know the city like the back of our hands and our team of experts can provide you with the best Cartagena day trips and activities offered. Our Hi Cartagena tour guides eat, sleep, and live the city, guaranteeing that your adventures run smoothly without a hitch.

Adventure Awaits

One of the most popular activities in the city are Cartagena boat tours! You can rent for just a few hours or go all day, depending on your needs. Aside from taking your rental boat out for an island party or an intriguing, up-close mangrove tour, Cartagena offers numerous other aquatic and outdoor excursions like snorkeling on a Rosario Islands day trip or taking the most beautiful bike tour Cartagena has: a historic route trailing from the Caribbean Sea to the lovely neighborhoods of El Laguito, Castillo Grande, Manga, and Getsemani. Are you a fan of outdoor adventure? Take a bath in El Totumo, the coolest mud volcano Cartagena has to offer! Bask in the healing mud, have your photo taken, and wash yourself off in the nearby Manzanillo del Mar Lake.

Take A Private Cartagena City Tour

If you’re historically-minded, what you want is a private city tour. Cartagena is rich with street art, gorgeous architecture, and important landmarks. Make sure to bring your camera, because we’ll take you to some incredible places like the ancient tunnels under San Felipe Castle or places on your bucket list like the Boca Grande beach or an ever-popular wild bird sanctuary. Cartagena private tours are scheduled at the time you want and travel at your pace.
