Highlights of the Caribbean Coast and Islands

The list of things to do and see on Colombia’s Caribbean Coast and Islands is impressive. Just some of the spectacular sites and activities awaiting you are:

• Cartagena.  This is the quintessential colonial port in which narrow lanes and white washed buildings shield almost 500 years of history. This history includes everything from the slave trade and the Inquisition witch hunts, to the Wars of Independence.

• The six-day Lost City trek to Teyuna, the Ciudad Perdida.  This mystic city lies deep in the jungles of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.

• Carnaval.  In Barranquilla is South America’s second biggest pre-Lent party.  More down-home affairs are located in all the coastal towns.

• Baseball.  Head out to the ballpark and munch down on fritos and beer while taking in the most popular sport on Colombia’s Caribbean coast.

• Vallenato music festival in Valledupar. Every April, the citizens of Vallento's hometown host a large festival in its honor.

• Scuba diving. From the San Andrés Islands to Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona, divers can explore coral reef as well as old Spanish galleons.
