Day 4: Fly and Discover Cartagena (B)
You will be picked up at the airport by our prepared private transportation service and taken to your hotel. You can relax during your approximately 15-20 minutes drive to your hotel. The reason the city is designed like a fortress is that it was the principal shipping port of gold from the New World back to Spain. The stone ramparts helped protect it from countless pirate attacks, including from the most famous of all: Sir Francis Drake. On top of this history, you will visit myriad plazas, the church and the monastery of San Pedro Claver, the Basilica Minor cathedral, and you’ll stroll along narrow cobbled streets lined with colonial houses featuring bougainvilia-draped balconies.
Visit the modern neighborhoods of Bocagrande and Manga. You will see the contrast between modern architecture and the beauty of the old houses from the twentieth century. Then, you will visit the Castle where the Spaniards sought to protect the city from the attacks of the English in the seventeenth century, “El Castillo De San Felipe de Barajas”.
