  • I'm Colombian and I love Cartagena, El Castillo de San Felipe is spectacular, I recommend for those who like to know the history of the place the audio guides, they are excellent to learn how it was built and because of the infrastructure.

  • A very interesting visit. Recommend rent audio guides and take it to the own time. You have very nice views of the city and its history is impressive. We recommend to go early, because the greater part of the tour is outdoors and in more sunshine hours it can seem very overwhelming.

  • A beautiful place full of history. You lack a bit of signage to guide to the tourist during the journey
