New in Colombia: Agritourism and Cartagena Cruises

Colombia continues to see exciting developments as the months go by and this summer has been no different. Today we explore two of the most exciting developments to come out of the country's booming tourism industry.

The coastal city of Cartagena has been Colombia's main cruise port for some time and is also the nation's most popular holiday destination - deservedly so. Those stopping off find a city with a rich history retold by the Spanish buildings encircled inside the walled town. Explorers will also find soft beaches leading onto the sea and top-notch diving reefs as well as a host of excellent bars, restaurants and shops to help recharge the batteries.

Now, Cartagena has started to see a surge of activity as it establishes itself as a hub for regional cruises. An increasing number of operators are choosing the city as the start and end points of their cruises, with the figure now at around 30 - and growing! All of this is to no surprise for those who have seen the city before, who will surely support the argument that this is an excellent destination for both short and long stays. A clean city filled with friendly and helpful locals all makes for an embracing welcome that will make you miss the city when you eventually depart.

Colombia has also seen a surge in another specific type of visit, though this one is a bit more niche as agritourism draws in visitors for a unique and fulfilling experience. Agritourism typically involves tourists staying on ranches and farms and to get stuck in with the locals. Made popular in America, these holidays are very much nature-based, including activities such as horse riding and animal feeding.

agritourism

The aim of agritourism is to improve the quality of life of the local, rural families by bringing money into the area whilst also providing visitors with a unique insight into the lives of those who live there. Guides teach about the biodiversity of the region and the unique farming methods used there. You'll see the communities of Santa Barbara, Mochuelo and Pasquilla as you take part in traditional activities and ultimately help to make and eventually sample authentic produce. Nearby nature trails and lessons in keeping animals help to ensure that agritourism experiences are packed to the rafters with enjoyment and quality.
