Cartagena Highlights

Beautiful Coast

Cartagena is one of the most beautiful cities in South America. It is located on the Caribbean coast and, as such, is encircled by a series of extraordinary beaches and islands.

Delicious Food

Cartagena is home to some of the best restaurants and food in South America. Street corners are filled with local bakeries, fresh fruit, and seafood abound.

Perfect Weather

Who would’ve ever guessed that Chicago is cold in January! Meanwhile, Cartagena is perfect with an average temperature between 75 - 87 degrees Fahrenheit!

Salsa Dancing

Cartagena has some of the most iconic salsa clubs in the world! Packed with live music and festive moods you will quickly understand why salsa is such a popular dance.

Same Time Zone

Cartagena’s proximity to the United States and reliance on the same time zone (CST) as Chicago make it an ideal destination for remote workers.

Very Friendly City

Colombia is consistently ranked one of the friendliest countries! This means, it'll be easier than ever to get to know the locals and immerse yourself in the culture!

Close to Everything

Cartagena is a city on the beach so you'll be surrounded by cafes, bars, and restaurants. If you ever feel like escaping the city, you can take a quick boat ride to the sun-soaked Rosario Islands where you can snorkel in some of the clearest water in the world!
