How many days to be in Cartagena?

If you are planning a trip to Cartagena de Indias, it is important to take into account how many days you will be in the city in order to make the most of your stay.

In general, we recommend a stay of at least 3 days in Cartagena, since this city has a lot to offer and you will need enough time to enjoy its main attractions.

If you only have 2 days, you can still see the main tourist attractions of the city, such as the Wall of San Felipe, the Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, and Playa de la Boquilla, but you will miss out on some of Cartagena’s more subtle charms.

On the other hand, if you have 4 or more days in the city, you will have time to visit less crowded places, such as the Isla de Barú or the Corales del Rosario National Park. You can also enjoy the lively nightlife of Cartagena and visit some of the most popular restaurants and bars in the city.

In summary, if you want to enjoy your trip to Cartagena de Indias to the fullest, we recommend a stay of at least 3 days. In this way, you will be able to see the main tourist attractions and enjoy the city without stressing about time.
