Cartagena: Walled City, San Felipe, La Popa Tour & Tastings

1. Cartagena: Walled City, San Felipe, La Popa Tour & Tastings

Whether you are short on time or you are wanting a complete Cartagena experience with no corners unturned, this private full-day tour is made so you can experience the city in the most complete way possible. Enjoy a local meal and visit sights such as San Felipe Castle and the Gold Museum. Start the day by meeting your local guide, who will pick you directly up from your hotel or address. Then, head first to the historic San Felipe Castle, the city’s old fortress built by Spaniards. Walk through the castle and let your guide bring back to life adventure stories of conquerors, treasures, and pirates, while you learn more about how Colombia became so mixed due to African, indigenous, and Spanish roots. Visit afterward the Walled City of Cartagena and stroll around the colonial and colorful houses as you get to know more about the main squares and bastions that traced the city’s path to independence. Visit Santo Domingo’s square and church, the Cathedral of Santa Catalina de Alejandría, and the Gold Museum. It wouldn’t be the perfect tour of Cartagena without tasting Colombia’s flavors, so you’ll have typical coconut sweets, fried arepa with egg, a traditional snack famous in the Caribbean Coast, and the raspao, a snow cone with a sugary, flavored syrup on top. If choosing the longer 8-hour tour option, you will finish your tour by going to the Convent of La Popa (Convent of the Stern), a viewpoint located at the top of a hill where the city, its sea, and one of its islands can be seen and photographed. Cartagena is not only the touristic capital of Colombia but one of the most memorable cities that holds Colombia’s history, making it a place for culture, tradition, and diversity, with many historic places and unique corners to discover.
