Count on an inspired stay at Conrad Cartagena, where guests can easily connect to this modern port town – known as the ‘Heroic City’ – and enjoy cultural experiences specially curated by the hotel.
Conveniently located along the coastline of the Caribbean Sea, the Conrad Cartagena is a scenic and exciting destination all its own. Visitors and locals alike enjoy the tropical weather, the long expanses of shoreline, and the charming cafés, shops and colonial architecture in the Old Town area. In 1984, the Port of Cartagena and several of the city’s fortresses and monuments were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Venture into town – just 40 minutes away – and explore the ‘Walled City.’ Walk the narrow streets and take in the beautiful houses, flower-filled balconies, old churches and gift shops. Families will love a horse-drawn carriage ride. Visit the San Felipe de Barajas Castle and learn about city history with an audio tour, or take a sightseeing tour on an open-air double-decker bus. Just one hour away by sailboat cruise is Islas del Rosario, a group of small islands where visitors can snorkel for coral, go scuba diving, or simply walk the popular Playa Blanca beach – perfect for a day trip.
Cartagena is known as one of the best gastronomic venues in the Caribbean, with plenty of fresh-caught seafood and cuisines such as Latin, Peruvian, Italian and Asian to choose from. Sip cocktails at a bar overlooking the sea, and stay to enjoy live music and salsa dancing.
Conrad Cartagena is pleased to curate adventures lasting 1, 3 or 5 hours – tailored especially to each guest.
Whether it’s relaxing beach time, tours of Spanish colonial architecture, street festivals or shopping trips, there’s a range of things to do in Cartagena for all ages, any time.
