City Trolley Tours are a great way to get to know Cartagena, and especially nice for little ones who get tired of walking a lot. All they have to do is sit and enjoy the ride and exciting views! This is a really good strategy for keeping everyone happy while learning about the history of Cartagena.
Located within the Islas de Rosario, the Oceanaire is on the island of San Martin de Pajarales. It's a definite winner with the kids: They will experience local marine life including dolphins, sharks, and turtles in open environments, along with shows that are sure to excite.
The Rafael Nuñez house, located outside the old downtown in Cabrero, was built in 1858. After Rafael married his wife Soledad, a woman from one of the most important families in Cartagena, a second level was added. The house is now a museum, and it is a nice, quiet place for the family to visit and stroll around while learning about one of the most favored presidents of Colombia.
The Palacio de la Inquisición is at the top of the list of historical places to visit in Cartagena, with or without kids. But if you're coming with the family, be sure to check out the chilren's activities at the history museum located on the second floor.
Zenu was an indigenous community that lived around the Sinu and Magdalena Rivers and — like other communities — created pieces of art with gold. This Pre-Columbian art all but disappeared when the Spanish came and conquered the land, but some has been collected here at the Zenu Gold Museum, which belongs to the Republic Bank. It's an intriguing look into the past and has interactive elements that will interest the kids.
Isla Baru is the perfect place to visit on your family vacation. The kids can perhaps learn to swim, practice their existing skills, or just play in the sand while spending quality time with family, creating strong bonds in this relaxing seaside location.
Here you will encounter the military and naval history of Cartagena. If your kids love the sea and the boats that sail upon it, this museum is just the place for them.
At the Caribe Plaza mall, you can watch a movie, grab something to eat, or shop for some toys or games to keep the kids entertained.
A great way for you and your family to spend time together while comfortably seeing the sights and learning about history of Cartagena.
Bocagrande Beach is close to the city, and has lots of choices of places to eat with the family, during the day or at night. The beach is great for kids as there are lots of water sports and activities for them to enjoy. I can remember, when I was a little girl, taking my first ride on a 'gusanito' boat at this beach.
