Bolivar Department

(3.8/5 based on 46,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, museums
Northwestern Colombia may be known for its production of livestock, sugarcane, and coffee, but tourism in Bolivar Department thrives largely thanks to the area's short but lively Caribbean coastline. Regional capital Cartagena serves as the starting point of many Bolivar Department tours, drawing history and architecture buffs with its World Heritage-listed old town. The gateway for exploring the rest of the country, charming Cartagena is also an ideal place for discovering the modern side of Colombia, complete with hip cafes, innovative restaurants, and luxury residential blocks. Away from this urban center, holidays in Bolivar Department allow tourists to discover a series of smaller settlements, tiny time capsules of South America's colonial past. Make Bolivar Department central to your Colombia travel plans using our Colombia holiday planner.
