CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA - 5 nights from $559 double occ, LAND ONLY
The walled city of Cartagena , a UNESCO World Heritage site, is one of the most stunningly beautiful small cities in the Americas. Spanish colonial two story homes were built with balconies filled with cascading bougainvilleas, painted different colors. Every street is a kaleidoscope of color . The city was walled to keep the pirate, whom we honor as Sir Francis Drake, from looting the city of the gold the Spaniards were shipping back to Spain . The home with the most beautiful balcony does not have to pay property taxes for an entire year. Very motivating. Small cobblestone streets, old world charm, beautiful beaches nearby, and islands off the coast to explore.
