SUNDAY’S SPECIAL SPOT – CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA

Sorry that this is a day late! I hope you enjoy it regardless

On the northern coast of Colombia, South America lies the city of Cartagena, once fortified for protection against pirates, it is now a thriving city based on industry, construction, commercialism and tourism. Although the city was found in 1533 C.E. by the Spanish, it has been home to numerous indigenous peoples as far back as 4000 B.C.E.

  1. It does look great doesn't it? Although Cartagena does have hotels and resorts, this photo is actually of the old fortress in the city. I am not aware if they have on its grounds any spas, massage centres, fitness clubs or the like. A Google search may help you there or checking on Trip Advisor. Sorry I can not help you more.
