Hotels and Resorts in Cartagena

Set on the untouched Caribbean coast, you'd be hard-pressed to find evidence of the conflict for which President Juan Manuel Santos won a Nobel Peace Prize for ending. Instead, what you'll be overwhelmed with are the same romantic scenes of a colonial walled city that inspired Love in the Time of Cholera, which earned the region another Nobel Prize. You'll become enamored of a destination that's essentially an open-air museum—as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and haven for beach-lovers. You might lose yourself among the skyscrapers of Bocagrande, in its shops, restaurants, nightclubs, and art galleries, not even knowing that gray sands and gentle waters lie only blocks away. Or wander from one historic fortress to another when there are 16 still standing to choose from, admiring Andalusian architecture between them all.

Any way you fall for this destination, the "Pride of Colombia" will more than earn its nickname during your visit …and perhaps even more so on your inevitable return.
