Cartagena de Indias Flights Guide
Colombia’s jewel city, which sits pleasantly enthralled in its historical dress on the northern Caribbean coast, is also one of the gems of the entire continent. Having seen the turmoil of invasion again and again by pirates and privateers, Cartagena is today a lasting reminder of a past long-gone.
Cartagena, the first Spanish colony in the Americas, was the main economic hub of Colombia’s gold trade in colonial times. As such, it was consistently attacked. The ramparts that grew around the old town and elsewhere attest to the human capacity for defense. The walls are still standing completely intact, and walking along them provides wonderful views of the sea and the tight corridors of the old town streets. Down in the streets the city is alive with vendors selling fruit drinks and coffee. There are churches galore to explore, including the cathedral, and the churches San Pedro Calaver and Santo Domingo. The Palacio de la Inquisicion is well worth a visit. Dotted throughout the district are pleasant parks and plazas. Opposite the historic district is the Castillo de San Felipe, a massive rampart that sits commandingly over the historic town, reminding it of its past.
Rafael Nunez International Airport is the city’s principle airport. It receives flights from EasyFly, Spirit, Copa, LAN, Viva Colombia, JetBlue, CanJet, Avianca and several others.
