Cartagena Vacation Kids

A Cartagena vacation with kids blends relaxation with historic culture and cuisine! With ancient significance, pristine shorelines to lounge on, and delicious restaurants, make it a one-stop-shop for your next excursion! Plan a trip here to split time between the ancient landmarks of the walled city, like Convent of Popa, and the golden sand of its adjacent beaches. To see a more colorful side to the city, be sure to also factor in time to visit street art neighborhoods like the beautiful Getsemani. Animal-loving children will also enjoy a trip to The Aviary to spot rare birds. (Be sure to stay for the special Spanish performance, which is a hit even if you can’t understand the language.) Or, take an afternoon stroll through Parque de Centenario, which is definitely worth weathering through the heat to see some iguanas up close!

Take a carriage ride through the cobblestone streets by night to see the city from a new vantage point. Or, traverse Castillo San Felipe’s underground caves, mysterious and educational to spook children into learning about Colombia’s steep history. Remember to also grab some ceviche from La Cevicheria when you get hungry! For a day trip, take a short journey to the Rosario Islands, where kids can snorkel with fish and explore tranquil beaches. Beauty will brim from every corner of its picturesque streets during your Cartagena vacation with kids!
