Baru Island Vacations

Baru Island is a popular destination for visitors to Cartagena, Colombia, a city with 950,000 residents. The area sits 7 miles (11 kilometers) to the southwest of Rafael Nunez International Airport, and only 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the city's central business district area.

To appreciate the many textures of Cartagena, spread your wings and discover surrounding areas like Isla Tierrabomba, Cartagena, and Getsemani.

Holiday makers in Baru Island, interested in finding out what makes the area tick, should make tracks to the cultural attractions nearby. There are plenty of excellent places visitors can pay a visit to for a morning including the Naval Museum Cartagena. Book seats for one or two of the magical live performances at Colon Theater.

When it’s time to take a break from the noisy streets of Cartagena, plan a trip to one of the many nearby green spaces. Stare out over the water and go for a long walk at one of the local beaches, for example Bocagrande Beach.

Cartagena has a number of interesting sights such as San Pedro, the San Felipe de Barajas Castle and Bolivar Square. To learn about the role of faith in Cartagena, pay a visit to the area’s most important religious sites, such as the San Pedro Claver Church and Convent and the Santo Domingo Church and Monastery. Learn more about Cartagena’s past by exploring some heritage sites, such as Inquisition Palace.

Spend a few hours high in the stands of Jaime Moron Stadium, cheering on the Real Cartagena. On weekends the stadium overflows with yellow and green, as crowds gather to support their home-grown heroes.

Finding somewhere handy to base yourself around Baru Island couldn’t be easier. If you're looking for great service and a comfortable bed, it’s hard to go past the Hilton Cartagena, the Hotel Caribe, and the popular Hampton By Hilton Cartagena.
