Located on the northern coast of Colombia, Cartagena is easily its home country’s highest drawing tourist city. This former sanctuary for escaped African-American slaves is popular year-round, thanks to its beautiful beaches and lively attitude. December is an especially busy time, as religious festivals close schools, prompting a huge influx of visitors. Many of the vacationers and tourists alike can be spotted enjoying a ride on the Chiva Bus. This popular way to both party and take in the sights comes complete with upbeat Caribbean music, drinks, and a positive vibe that keep the bus rocking its way throughout the city.
Playa Blanca is perhaps the most popular of Cartagena’s major beaches, and it too perpetuates the festive attitude so sought after by fun-loving visitors. Like many beaches in Cartagena, Playa Blanca also comes complete with beautiful coral reefs and plenty of beachside activities. Divided into two sections, (a semi-walled off traditional section called Ciudad Amurallada and a strip of beachfront hotels known as Castillogrande) whether you are looking to party, or just enjoy the atmosphere, Cartagena is one of South America’s most fun-filled vacation destinations.
