Summary of the Cartagena Colombia Golf Trip
Day 1 – Cartagena – Arrival – Karibana Golf Course – Departure
Planned destinations for the Cartagena Colombia Golf Trip
In terms of tourism, Cartagena is probably the most important Colombian city after Bogota. It is the capital of the Bolivar department on the north coast of Colombia. The average temperature is 32°C (89°F), so the climate is hot but windy as it is at sea level.
Over 500 years of history can be found here, proof of that is that Cartagena was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. Its perfect location directly on the Caribbean Sea and its beautiful colonial old town (Ciudad Amurallada) enchant national and international tourists, who can also travel there by cruise ship.
In the historical center, you will find many attractions featuring the famous Castle of San Felipe de Barajas, boutique hotels and restaurants. The walled city is also known as a popular honeymoon destination for the romance of its streets and architecture.

Nestled between native forest and the beautiful Caribbean beach, the Karibana hotel and golf club is definitely one of the best golf courses in Colombia. The golf course was home to the first Cartagena de Indias at the Karibana Championship (part of the PGA-sanctioned Web.com Tour) in 2015 and the 2019 Colombian Open.
On the first 9 holes, there are 6 artificial lakes surrounded by forests and wide fairways, while the remaining 9 holes offer sea views and require greater effort due to the wind, plus around 135 bunkers.
