Cartagena, Colombia is one of the most sought after destinations this year for Black travelers. Luckily, Copa Airlines just reduced its fares on routes from Chicago to Cartagena. The lowest price found is only $242 roundtrip.

This deal is valid for travel starting in September with dates into March of 2020. These are not direct flights, but the layover is very short for a price like this. You can use a travel search engine like Skyscanner to find the dates that work best for you.

Reminiscent of the Caribbean, Cartagena is a city full of lively sights and vibrant colors that have attracted visitors for centuries. The city, with its historical walls and some of the best weather around, offers something special for every kind of traveler.

Cartagena is quickly becoming a must-see among Black travelers. As a former port for the slave trade, Cartagena is rich in African culture and influence. Start your trip around Old Town to take in the rich colonial architecture, and here you’ll also find your share of cathedrals and buildings complete with cute, picture-perfect balconies.

For all of my foodies out there, check out Quintal. It’s an old building that has been converted into a food lover’s paradise. It houses everything from fast food spots, cafes, to gourmet food markets, and you can even check out some of the English speaking Colombian cooking classes. We also have a complete Cartagena city guide that will tell you everything that is not to be missed in the gorgeous destination. Get your copy here.
