Cartagena de Indias

The city is a special destination, always alive, and the venue for important cultural events – like that memorable concert – that highlight its colors. In this case, it was fuchsia, the symbol of the extensive schedule of shows and festivals that welcome visitors: The International Music Festival, the Film and TV Festivals, the Bolero and Caribbean Son Festivals, the Cartagena Jazz Festival, the Independence Feasts, and the Feasts of the Virgen de La Candelaria. The heroic city is music and culture throughout the whole year.

News takes place without interruption. Thanks to its cultural offer, Cartagena is now on the tourism horizon of many Colombians and foreigners who want to participate in the city’s various festivals and activities Luis Ernesto Arajo, Executive President of the Cartagena de Indias Tourist Board.

Authorities and tourism operators work full time because there are always plenty of visitors to the events at the sea, on the beach, at world-class hotels, or in the old city center. Stories always surround the bulwarks and the old emblematic ramparts.

In reality, Cartagena de Indias is yellow, white, red, fuchsia, blue, brown, orange, violet and green; its attractions, likewise, have been grouped by colors. As in a childs game, travelers must paint themselves with every color to fully experience this world heritage site.

Many people not only visited the heroic city; they decided to stay and build a space for their dreams. Painters, singers, actors, and writers ceased to be visitors and became hosts and authors of the history that is written every day in Cartagena de Indias for its charm, its events, and its news.
