Aromas and Flavors of Cartagena Cruise
Cruise Cartagena Bay on a beautifully appointed boat, where spectacular views are only the beginning. Guests are treated to a coffee tasting activity led by a local expert that will turn you into an ambassador of the Colombian coffee culture. Then, dig into a culinary experience hosted by a local chef that demonstrates the preparation of typical local dishes. A tasting of Cartagena's popular delicacies follows. The cruise brings passengers to the Old City, where you'll disembark to enjoy the sights.

Cartagena Old Town - Walking Tour
Connected by a series of bridges, Cartagena is divided by 17th-century walls into an 'historic old city' and a cosmopolitan 'modern city.' Acclaimed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old City is the birthplace of Cartagena and is famous for its cobblestone lanes, leafy plazas, and well-tended Spanish colonial buildings draped with bougainvillea. Its beauty is enhanced by old church domes, the clock tower (a symbol of the city) and the city ocean views. A guided walk includes Plaza de Bolivar, Plaza San Pedro, the city's cathedral and other points of interest.

What you will see along the way:
As you cruise through the sparkling waters of Cartagena Bay, you'll enjoy the stunning skyline and colonial city views from the deck of the comfortable Sibarita Master boat.
Once on shore, explore the old city and such highlights as Plaza de Bolivar, Plaza San Pedro, the city's cathedral and the main points of interest in the walled city.
Shopping:
Enjoy a little free time to shop for classic Colombian souvenirs, from colorful woven hammocks and handbags to small Fernando Botero statues and copies of the iconic works of Gabriel García Márquez, whose writings portray old Cartagena.
