ON YOUR BIKE
There are plenty of places to explore Cartagena on bike. From the walled city or the tree-lined avenues of Manga there’s masses to see. For small children, however, nothing beats a stress-free tour on two wheels around the historic centre of Cartagena.
Our Cartagena Historic Bike Tour is the greenest and most entertaining way to get around Cartagena for the whole family.
Safety always comes first at This is Cartagena, and we can make sure tandems and child seats can be rented for toddlers to ensure that none of the family misses out on a really fun-tastic way to enjoy Cartagena.
Our two-wheeled, cinematographic tour of the city includes special entry into some of the most photogenic corners of the city, and you can choose to go further off the historical map if you wish and visit Castillogrande's or Bocagrande's beach districts.
En route, your bilingual guide will keep everyone hydrated with coconut water, and you can stop over at a playground or finish off the tour a quick splash in the Caribbean afterwards.
A Pool Day for the Whole Gang
One of the largest hotel 5* resorts in Cartagena in Bocagrande is also blessed with the biggest paddling pool in the city.
This top end resort pays special attention to children and the shallow pool has been designed especially for you to enjoy the days splashing about with your loved ones.
Book yourself into one of the most kid-friendly corners of Cartagena with a pool, botanical gardens and poolside restaurant.
After loads of water action, your kiddie-winks can dry off in the child centre filled with games, or search for toucans and iguanas in the hotel's exotic gardens.
Allow us to take the hassle out of organising anything. We'll pick you and the whole gang up in an air-conditioned van heading straight for destination Water Bomb! Towels, lunch and a soft drink will also be provided.
Lunchtime Pause @ El Bistro
Keeping your kids happy and healthy during mealtimes on holiday can be a real chore, especially when there are fussy appetites and alergies to take into account. But fear not, El Bistro has you covered!
El Bistro is considered lunctime legend in Cartagena for its European-tinged menu that despite growing competition, still offers one of the best quaility/price food ratios in the city.
These guys offer a great childrens menu which caters to foreign tongues that may be scared of funky looking cuts of fish or weird and wonderful veggies.
For a sugar fix you can can enjoy some brilliant cakes and bread made en situ.
HISTORY HAS NEVER BEEN SO MUCH FUN
Children of every age love a story and there’s little doubt that the historic centre of Cartagena has plenty of tales to tell. Whether it’s yarns of ghosts, tales of pirates and hidden treasure or historical tales of revolution and compassion, Cartagena has a gripping history.
How better to get drawn into Cartagena's spectacular heritage than an exploratory mission through the Cartagena's old town on foot with a billingual certified guide.
Along the tour you'll stop and chat with some real faces of Cartagena, including the local stall owners and personalities.
Give us a heads up and we can also arrange a play stop in one Cartagena's coolest child hangouts. There, your little-ones can make new friends kicking a ball around on the square, or go crazy on the monkey bars in the neighbourhood park.
BOWL BACK THE YEARS WITH COLOMBIAN KINGPINS
If you’re looking for something to keep those troublesome teenagers out of trouble then knock some sense in to them with a little bit of bowling. Family fun for everyone, guaranteed.
It might not be the most colonial of past-times but anyone who's been fourteen before understands the importance of the bowling alley in any youthful right of passage.
The silly shoes, the fizzy pop, the hot dogs. You can't beat it. Stick your kids on a curfew and see how many mates they pick up before night falls. Better still slip a pair of those gaudy clown shoes on and show them how it's done.
