Discover Cartagena's past and present on this combination land and sea tour.

Your day begins aboard a sleek catamaran for an incredible journey along the azure waters of Cartagena Bay. A waterside perspective showcases how the city was fortified, and your guide will explain why this stronghold was so important to maritime traffic on the Spanish Main. You'll sail smoothly and serenely into the heart of Cartagena's historic district, skipping all the traffic.

Step onto dry land to discover the most extensive urban fortification in South America -- a system of zones dividing the city into three neighborhoods. The San Pedro district features the cathedral and many Andalusian-style palaces; the San Diego district is where merchants and the middle-class colonists lived; and Gethsemani was the 'popular quarter' for the masses. Walk with your guide through the heart of the historic district. You're surrounded by incredible colonial architecture more than 500 years old and still going strong.

Explore the Emerald Museum -- a witness to wealth -- among other impressive architectural sites. You will also enjoy a short and sweet visit to the Chocolate Museum (Chocomuseo), where the entire process of chocolate-making, from pod to package, is explained.

Then, re-board the catamaran and sail back into port.
