Romantic Sunset Sailing

Have you ever dreamed of sailing into the sunset with your lover by your side, gazing at a sky glowing five different shades of orange, pink and blue? Yes, we know, it sounds like a cheesy early-2000s rom-com or a Disney-approved “happily ever after” but we at Hi Cartagena can truly make your dreams come true.  

 

With sunset sailing tours in Colombia’s most romantic city, Cartagena de Indias, we can help to tailor the perfect plan; whether your goal is to charm your new beau or reignite the spark with the love of your life, Cartagena’s bay is the perfect backdrop to your love story.

 

Many people who come to visit the pearl of the Caribbean rarely leave the walled city – which is understandable, of course, as the UNESCO-protected cobbled streets possess a certain charm that make it unlike many other places in the world. However, the super-modern high rise buildings of Bocagrande, Lagito and Castillogrande are also a great place to stay, and make a gorgeous skyline from afar, representing the “modern Cartagena” with their Miami-esque style. The juxtaposition of the old and the new is what makes our Cartagena so special and without a doubt the best place to admire it is from a catamaran with a glass of champagne in your hand. 

 

We took out two lucky couples for a romantic tour on one of our best and shiniest boats. We loved seeing their reaction to the sheer beauty of the night. Everything fell into place – the drinks were perfectly cold, the breeze just enough to whip away the humidity of the day, the sun put on a show worthy of an Oscar, and the couples ended the night more in love with each other than ever. They say you should try everything at least once – well, sunset sailing is something we’d try again without a shadow of a doubt. Welcome to paradise!

Museum of Modern Art

Located in the walled city on Plaza de San Pedro Claver, next to a church of the same name, the Museum of Modern Art is small but hugely significant to local culture. With a focus on broadening regional art appreciation and conservation, the museum has a wide and unique variety of modern paintings and sculptures and is an essential stop for anyone interested in learning about the Caribbean influence on Colombian art.

Established in 1959, the museum is located in two historic, 17th century brownstones, originally constructed to hold the first customs-house for the Port of Cartagena.

The museum regularly hosts exhibitions and showings from local talent across many mediums; these can be found on the second level. The museum’s permanent collection is displayed on the first level and is comprised primarily of a selection of Latin American paintings from the 1950’s. Visitors can appreciate incredible works by talented local artists such as Alejandro Obregon and Enrique Grau.
