If you chose Cartagena as your next destination for your vacations, we recommend you to save some time to enjoy these amazing plans in this magical city.

On behalf of the team of Boats4U we recommend the following plans that you can’t miss during your stay at La Heroica:
  • Cultural tour:
  • In addition to delighting in the picturesque and colonial architecture of the city, both in the center and surroundings, you can learn more about the history of Cartagena, its conquest and therefore, you can culturally engage with each place and its inhabitants. We recommend you to visit the San Felipe de Barajas Castle, the Walled City, the Government Palace, the Pastelillo Fort, the Bóvedas, the Clock Tower, the Gold Museum, among others.

  • Visit the Bazurto Market:
  • This is the plan for those who wish to enjoy Cartagena's culture more naturally. Opposite to luxury, Bazurto market is the place where you can buy the best products while interacting directly with each citizen. Although, you should keep in mind that this is a noisy place, but that's what it makes it unique.

  • Tour the city in Chiva or party night route:
  • Partying in chiva is a native activity to Colombian culture. While you travel through the beautiful streets of Cartagena, you can dance and enjoy the rhythm of Colombian music such as vallenato or champeta, a couple of drinks and lots of dancing. Most chiva parties are organized in the center of the city, and for those who are traveling alone, these parties are an excellent way to meet new people.

  • Enjoy the gastronomy of Cartagena:
  • Not everything is luxury. Nothing like enjoying the typical dishes of the region: Arepa de Huevo, Ceviche, Chipichipi, fish in all its presentations, coconut rice, Butifarra, Carimañolas, coastal serum and other delicacies, that instead of describing you, we will take you to try them yourself and give them your score.

  • Dance salsa, champeta and other rhythms of the Caribbean coast:
  • Beaches of white sand, turquoise watersm and swaying palms; Playa Blanca is the type of beach you expect to find when visiting a Caribbean city. Like stepping on the desktop image attached to the work computer of a melancholic employee, Playa Blanca is dazzling but unfortunately invaded by tourism. Located just 45 minutes outside of Cartagena, most people head to Playa Blanca on a pre-packaged day trip that allows them to take a boat ride full of obstacles, snorkel and only 3 hours at Playa Blanca.

  • Don't forget your camera:
  • Yes, Colombia is magical realism. We assure you that you will want to photograph everything. From the colorful doors and colonial architecture of the city center, people, moments on the beach or the traditional "nights of Bocagrande" will have the perfect setting to capture the best images, either professionally or amateur.

  • Rent a boat and tour Rosario Islands:
  • Navigating the Caribbean Sea should be one of the first things you put on your to-do list in Cartagena, especially if you enjoy the experience of an exclusive boat just for you. The Rosario Islands are a splendid place where you visit the local aquarium, practice water sports, meet new people or simply rest on the sand.
For all the above, if you want to know more about chartering a boat in Cartagena, contact us, we have what you need to make these, the best vacations of your life.
