Q&A

  • Q: What is the best way to tour Cartagena without having to take a tour bus?
  • A: Taking a tour of this beautiful, but extremely vivacious, city is a must during your stop in Cartagena, Colombia. Touring the city in a horse-drawn carriage lets you discover the city in a more private setting (just you, the driver and a horse). This city is a sight to behold. Think deep blue houses, hot pink buildings, and yellow churches. You’ll feel right in the middle of a fantasy land. Another way to explore Cartagena is a more local version of a group tour in a colorfully painted chiva, an open-sided old school bus. With music blasting and a tour guide pointing out some of the most interesting aspect of the town, a chiva tour is a party all on its own – never mind the party going on within the city limits. Warning: This area will be very busy on weekends as it the party destination for many locals trying to get out of the capital of Colombia, Bogota.
