City Guides

Cartagena is so much more than its rich colonial history and stunning Caribbean beaches. This vibrant, Caribbean port is a cultural melting pot, luring in an all-star cast of constantly changing cultural heavyweights flown in for a giddy selection of festivals, parties and celebrations throughout the year.

Cartagena may only have two seasons - hot and hotter - but the city's cultural climate changes from week to week depending on which tribe is in town.

So pick your clan carefully for a perfect Cartagena vacation. From hip film-makers to high-brow writers and architects, it pays to check out This Is Cartagena's cultural calendar before planning when to visit.

From vibrant festivals and pop-up parties, to cultural gatherings, concerts, exhibitions and exciting sporting events, you’ll find something that’s guaranteed to put a smile on that dial.
