Colombia In 18 Days! Part IV — Cartagena

exhausted after a long journey from San Gil to Cartagena

After our rafting adventure near San Gil and our sightseeing in Barichara our adventure continued in mesmerizing Cartagena. I don’t think that you could find many people who’ve visited Colombia that would not conclude that Cartagena is an essential place to see in Colombia. In Cartagena we saw a Spanish fortress, the colonial Old Town, the beach at Bocagrande, enjoyed incredible nightlife, and visited a nearby mud volcano!

Be sure to watch the video at the bottom of this article to see more photos from Cartagena and to see what it was like to be inside a mud volcano!

One of the best experiences in Cartagena is free! Just walking around inside the walled city is free. There are a number of sculptures, shops, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in the colonial Old Town.
