Recently, Colombia was chosen as the number one trending destination for tourism in 2020 in a ranking by the United States Tour Operators Association.
According to figures from Colombia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Tourism, more than 3 million travelers visited Colombia between January and October 2019, an estimated 2.7% increase from 2018.
One of Colombia’s main attractions is its capital city: Colombia.
Cartagena is a port city on the country’s Caribbean coast. Close to the sea is the famous walled Old Town, founded in the 16th century, which features cobblestone streets and colorful colonial buildings.
Among the many things to do, see, and eat in Colombia, you should pay a visit to the Getsemani neighborhood.
Here is where you will find some of Cartagena’s incredible street art, as well as plenty of boutique shops, cafes, restaurants, and cheap bars.
Another stop during your stay is, of course, the beach. It’s one of the main Cartagena tourist attractions. The easiest option is visiting the Bocagrande area of the city, although it’s not the most picture-friendly beaches.
For the best beach in close proximity, your best bet is to take a day-trip to Playa Blanca.
