Colombia has always combined the best bits of South America in one stunning country. As a visitor, you will be spoiled by its riches. You can trek through parts of the Amazon rainforest or visit Colombia’s spectacular national parks, which remain largely untouched by humans. Or why not trying hiking in the northern Andes and admire the epic mountain views? If you prefer the beach, Colombia has some of the most serene and diverse coastlines in the world.
On the coast of the Caribbean Sea and close to the neighbouring country of Panama you will find Cartagena, one of the biggest cities in all of Columbia. Founded in 1533, it soon became one of the major trading ports in Spain’s South American empire.
Cartagena has the best of both worlds: a rich and vibrant culture that reverberates through the city and lots of fun free-time activities on offer. Luckily for you, our language school here not only offers high-quality Spanish tuition but also an extensive cultural programme that helps you make the most of your time in Cartagena. Read on to find out more about what’s on offer and what awaits you in what the locals call the ‘Magic City’ of Colombia.
