The Holy Week is the perfect excuse to escape to a paradisiacal destination ... Which better than Cartagena?

For Colombians, this is an essential date to take a break from the daily routine and the ideal moment to spend time with the family and, why not make new foreign friends?

At Boats4u we bring you the most entertaining plans to enjoy an unforgettable week:
  1. Walk along the Great Wall
  2. The wall that surrounds the old town is one of Cartagena's best features. This colonial wall was built to keep pirates away in the 16th century.

  3. Explore the historic center
  4. The Center is the pulsating heart of Cartagena. It has beautiful narrow streets, vibrant colorful houses, and statues, monuments and beautiful squares that are worth visiting in their entirety.

  5. Visit the churches and cathedrals
  6. There are so many beautiful churches and cathedrals in Cartagena! Some of the best places to visit are Santa Catalina Cathedral, Parish Office, and San Pedro Claver Parish.

  7. Head over the clock tower
  8. In Plaza De La Paz, you will find the famous Clock Tower Gate that was once the main entrance through the wall into the city. This monument has an interesting history that is worth knowing.

  9. Get to know the San Felipe de Barajas Castle
  10. The fortress is on the outskirts of the walled city and was built thousands of years ago to protect the city. To date, it is one of the most beautiful and representative monuments of La Heroica.

  11. Visit the museums of the city
  12. If you have some free time and want to know the history of the area, there are some museums in the Historic Center that you can visit. We especially recommend the Gold Museum and the Palace of the Inquisition.

  13. Take a gastronomic tour
  14. Delight in Colombian-style dishes with a Caribbean touch and all the flavor of the sea. Regardless of where you are staying, you can visit from the most luxurious restaurants in the historic center or enjoy a good fish next to the beach. You decide, but do not miss the taste of Cartagena.

  15. Cartagena is a party
  16. The city is full of interesting places to have a good time. And although it is not necessary to be in clubs and parties to enjoy the nightlife in Gethsemane, this area is known mainly for its lively nightlife.

    We especially recommend visiting Cholon Island. This is a beach located at an hour from Cartagena that stands out for making the best parties in the region.

  17. Be the king of your own party!
  18. Nothing like being in charge of the rules of the game. Rent a yacht or boat in Cartagena and make this the perfect place for your dream party.

  19. Travel the nearby islands to Cartagena
  20. Islas del Rosario, Baru, Tierrabomba, Tintipan, Mucura and Cholon (mentioned above) ... these are the most incredible beaches of La Heroica. Remember that you can get to them by boat from Cartagena, in the Great Port of the city.
